New Static LAG problems with Powerconnect 6224

Hello,

For a very long time, my network has run 2724's and 2824's as the "backbone" of our network with Adtran Netvanta 1224ST POE's as the feeder switches to our voip phones.  WE HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM configuring the Link Aggregation on BOTH the 1224 and the Powerconnects, right out of the box.  Simply ensure that the appropriate ethernet ports were properly connected together, then make them a member of the same LAG group on the respective switch, and off it went.  Never was it necessary to do anything else to get this rolling.  However, wanting to take advantage of a the capabilities of a "layer-3" switch, we went ahead and recently made the jump to the 6224.  Right out of the box, the LAG membership does not seem to have the same functionality as the previous powerconnects we were using.  Navigating to the appropriate menu on the 6224 and selecting the appropriate ports into a LAG group, and then connecting those to my LAG group on my Adtran causes that section of the network to lock up.  There are many more settings for LAG in the 6224 that were not present in the previous models.  Does anything have to be done here???  For instance, LAG hash algorithm type???  I don't understand why it would be any different.  Can anyone help?  Does anyone have any experience with Powerconnects and Adtran?

Please post the web screen for the 27xx or 28xx LAG configuration. Also post the similar screen on the 62xx or better yet, post the output of "show running-config" from the 62xx.

The 2824 did not respond to a "show running-config" command.  It only responded to a "show tech-support config" command.  The output of that command was so verbose, I could not capture it in my session screen.  The 2724's do not have a serial port.

Re: New Static LAG problems with Powerconnect 6224

Can you post the web UI screen capture of the Switch>Link Aggregation>LAG membership page from both the 27xx and 28xx?

Please explain how you notice that the network is "locked up" when you connect the 62xx to the adtran.   What ports of each are connected together?  Can you post the configuration of the adtran?
