How do I configure channel-groups to support round-robin (linux bonding mode 0) load balancing?
We run a Brocade VDX 6720 and the folowing config works with linux bonding mode 4
When the linux machines are changed to mode 0 (round-robin), communication fails.
Is there something I can configure on the VDX to support channel-group round-robin load balancing?

Doing some testing...preliminary results show that changing from:
channel-group 9 mode active type standard
channel-group 9 mode on type standard
Makes a difference and the linux servers with nics configured to bonding mode 0 are now able to communicate with each other.

VDX config is similar to Cisco CLI config.
With Cisco port-channel
-- mode on == without any protocol e.g. LACP
-- mode active = active sending LACP
Hope this helps,
