How to Configure a LACP Port-Channel on a DNOS 6 Switch


This article explains how to create a LACP, dynamic, port-channel on a DNOS 6 switch.



To configure a LACP, dynamic, port-channel on a DNOS 6 switch, do the following:

Warning: It is best practice to configure the LACP port-channel before plugging in the respective cables. Not doing so could cause unexpected issues.

NOTE: The following example adds tengigabit interfaces 1/0/1 and 1/0/2 to port-channel 1.


1. Configure the respective gigabit, tengigabit or fortygigabit interfaces to the appropriate port-channel number, 1-128, using the interface range command.

N-Series>en
N-Series#conf
N-Series(config)#interface tengigabitethernet 1/0/1

N-Series(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode active
N-Series(config-if)#exit

N-Series(config)#interface tengigabitethernet 1/0/2

N-Series(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode active

Note: The following example adds tengigabit interfaces 1/0/1 and 1/0/2 to port-channel 1.

Note: Avoid using all when configuring a port range for port-channels. Specify the exact interfaces.


2. Configure the switchport mode and vlan membership inside port channel interface. The below command shows how to enter the LACP interface configuration.

N-Series(config-if)#interface port-channel 1

3. Verify the respective port-channel is active.

N-Series#show interface port-channel 1

4. Copy the configuration changes to the startup configuration

N-Series#copy running-config startup-config

This operation may take few minutes.
Management interfaces will not be available during this time.
