FWS648G to ICX6430C Trunk

I can configure a trunk on my FWS but the ICX doesn't seem to accept a trunk configuration or trunk deploy command.

I enter on the FWS:

config t

turnk e 0/1/39 to 0/1/40

trunk deploy

and it's up.

on the ICX I enter:

trun e 1/2/1 to 1/2/2

trunk deploy

I get the following error:

Command Not Allowed in NI style LAG CLI mode

Re: FWS648G to ICX6430C Trunk

Hi Charles3,

     Strange, works on my 6430. I am running ICX64S07400a.bin code.

     However when you say ICX6430C, is that the 12 port modal (ICX6430-C12)? As mine is the 24 port version.

     Other info - on mine, I have nothing connected into those ports and the ICX is not in a stack (stand alone unit) also the ICX has no licenses.

SSH@swtich(config)#trun e 1/2/1 to 1/2/2

Trunk will be created in next trunk deploy.

SSH@swtich(config)#trun dep

SSH@swtich(config)#sh trunk

Configured trunks:

Trunk ID: 65

Hw Trunk ID: 1

Ports_Configured: 2

Primary Port Monitored: Jointly

Ports   PortName Port_Status Monitor Rx_Mirr Tx_Mirr Monitor_Dir

1/2/1   none     enable off     N/A     N/A N/A

1/2/2   none     enable off     N/A     N/A N/A

Thanks

Michael

Re: FWS648G to ICX6430C Trunk

Hi Charles3,

     Ok, so a  quick read on ver 8.0.0a L2 switching guide and I can see that the trunk command has be deprecated.

     So I am gussing that you are running v 8, the below will created a static LAG what will be able to talk to the FWS trunk (I think )

Brocade(config)# lag blue static id 1

Brocade(config-lag-blue)#ports ethernet 1/2/1 to 1/2/1

Brocade(config-lag-blue)#primary-port 1/2/1

Brocade(config-lag-blue)#deploy

Thanks

Michael.

That worked, thank you.

The trunk configuration commands—trunk ethernet, trunk deploy, trunk-cfg-ind,

link-aggregation active | passive, link-aggregation conf key —are deprecated. Instead, you can

use the new LAG configuration commands.
