[All About Switches] Q&A: How Do I Configure Link Aggregation in LACP Mode?

Latest reply: May 28, 2018 15:02:35 475 1 0 0

A: To configure link aggregation in LACP mode, perform the following steps:

Step 1: Run the interface eth-trunk trunk-id command in the system view to create an Eth-Trunk and enter the Eth-Trunk interface view. By default, an Eth-Trunk works in manual mode.

Step 2: Run the mode lacp command in the Eth-Trunk interface view to configure link aggregation in LACP mode.

Step 3: Run the trunkport interface-type { interface-number1 [ to interface-number2 ] } &<1-16> command in the Eth-Trunk interface view to add member interfaces to the Eth-Trunk.

Step 4: Run the load-balance { dst-ip | dst-mac | src-ip | src-mac | src-dst-ip | src-dst-mac | enhanced profile profile-name } command in the Eth-Trunk view to configure the load balancing mode.

Step 5: For more information about configuring other parameters, for example, the number of active interfaces, system LACP priority, and interface LACP priority, see the corresponding product documentation.


For more information about configuring link aggregation in LACP mode, see S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700&S7700&S9700 Series Switches Typical Configuration Examples and choose Typical Ethernet Switching Configuration > Example for Configuring Link Aggregation in LACP Mode When Switches Are Directly Connected.


For more information about configurations and principles of link aggregation, see the corresponding product documentation.

Step 1: Log in to Huawei enterprise technical support website: http://support.huawei.com/enterprise.

Step 2: Select the product, for example, Switch > S5700.


Step 3: Select the corresponding product documentation from the Downloadable Product Documentation Package.


Step 4: See Link Aggregation Configuration under Configuration > CLI-based Configuration Guide > Ethernet Switching Configuration Guide.
