I am in the process of migrating a Nortel 5000BH backbone to a 6500 based backbone. I have a requirement to provide at least 400Mpbs interconnection between the two networks for the duration of the user/system migration to support client/server applications. We have run into problems, these being:
1/ The only way to provide the links on the Nortel 5000BH is by using existing 100Mbps Ethernet ports in an MLT aggregated link.
2/ The 5000BH uses a source-MAC algorithm to determine the port that traffic should be forwarded on.
3/ Traffic from the Cisco network (172.24.0.0) is forwarded by the MSFC to the Nortel network (10.0.0.0). This results in the 5000BH seeing only the MSFCs MAC resulting in all traffic being forwarded on a single link from the Cisco network to the Nortel network.
4/ Traffic from the Nortel network to the Cisco network is spread over all for links in the MLT as different end-station MACs are seen by the 5000BH as the source.
I have tried several methods to connect the networks including:
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
