how to tell links apart without LLDP

[ Edited ]

I have a situation where there Brocade ICX6650-64 Switch is distributing to multiple Foundry EdgeIron switches via aggregated trunk links.

 

Brief ocnfiguration are like:

 

[Brocade]

!
trunk ethe 1/1/5 to 1/1/8
trunk ethe 1/1/9 to 1/1/12
trunk ethe 1/1/13 to 1/1/16
trunk ethe 1/1/19 to 1/1/20
trunk ethe 1/1/21 to 1/1/24
trunk ethe 1/1/25 to 1/1/28
trunk ethe 1/1/29 to 1/1/32
!

 

 

[EdgeIron]

!
interface ethernet 1/45
spanning-tree spanning-disabled
channel-group 1
!
interface ethernet 1/46
spanning-tree spanning-disabled
channel-group 1
!
interface ethernet 1/47
spanning-tree spanning-disabled
channel-group 1
!
interface ethernet 1/48
spanning-tree spanning-disabled
channel-group 1
!
!
interface port-channel 1
spanning-tree spanning-disabled
!

 

Foundry EdgeIron is a bit old and doesn't support LLDP.

 

It's a bit difficult to trance manually because of all the aggregated cables being bundled and tangled up.

Is there a way tell apart? Ping or by mac address or something?

 

Thanks.

I would assume the EdgeIron supports FDP, or Foundry Discovery Protocol

 

On both sides, from a config type fdp run

 

Then after a minute or so issue a show fdp neighbor

gah! I was so excited upon seeing your post but I dont' think my EdgeIron does fdp.

 

Console#show f?
% Unrecognized command.
Console#conf t
Console(config)#fd?
% Unrecognized command.
Console(config)#f?
% Unrecognized command.
Console(config)#f

 

Console(config)#
Console(config)#interface port-channel 1
Console(config-if)#f?
flowcontrol
Console(config-if)#fd?
% Unrecognized command.
Console(config-if)#f?
flowcontrol
Console(config-if)#interface ethernet 1/48
Console(config-if)#fd?
% Unrecognized command.
Console(config-if)#f?
flowcontrol
Console(config-if)#end

 

Console#conf t
Console(config)#fd?
% Unrecognized command.

 

My Brorcade has it though!

ICX6650-64 Switch(config)#fd

Any other clue? 


Thanks.

Bummer, it's a rather old box I guess. Sorry
