VRRP-E over a lag connection

Hi all!

SO i got to looking at setting up VRRP-E over 2 mlxe's, one x8 and the other x16.My connections between the 2 are ports 3/3 and 3/5 (mlxe8) and 14/3 14/5 on the mlxe16. I'm running RSTP with the vlans and the lag configured is set to have RSTP admin-pt2pt-mac configured on every one of the ports.  So what i did was thus.

 

mlx8

config t

vlan 10

no span

rstp

rstp priority 10

tagged eth 3/3 eth 3/5

router-interface ve 10

 

interface eth 3/3 eth 3/5

rstp admin-pt2pt-mac

enable

 

router vrrp-extended

int ve 10

ip address 10.10.10.2/24

ip vrrp-extended vrid 10

backup priority 110 track-priority 20

ip address 10.10.10.1

activate

 

lag ICT-Core8to16 dynamic id 10

ports eth 3/3 eth 3/5

primary port 3/3

deploy

 

mlxe16

mlx8

config t

vlan 10

no span

rstp

rstp priority 100

tagged eth 14/3 eth 14/5

router-interface ve 10

 

router vrrp-extended

int ve 10

ip address 10.10.10.3/24

ip vrrp-extended vrid 10

backup priority 100 track-priority 20

ip address 10.10.10.1

activate

 

lag ICT-Core16to8 dynamic id 10

ports eth 14/3 eth 14/5

primary port 14/3

deploy

 

I'm fairly confident that my lag is set up properly as the FDP neighbors are working properly since i can see them. Its only a core to core link but i would rather make sure that i didn't miss a step with this configuration. Is there anything else that anyone can see that i might have missed? I know that it can be done with LAGs but before deploying it within an organization i would like to double check to make sure that i am right on the money.

 

Cheers!
