cisco port-channel equivalent to A5120-48G_El_switch

Hi,

I have a A5120-48G_El_switch switch that i would like to connect with our cisco layer 3 switch, however i am not so familiar with thisswitch. The connection i would like to do is use the port-channel in cisco port connected to the HP switch port using the equivalent port-channel equivalent.

 

Can anyone help me on the command i will use with hp so it can be recognized by cisco using port-channel on both ends?

 

THanks,

Config extract from a 5820 IRF pair below. (Looks like it is missing the PVID/native VLAN statement). This will create an LACP aggregated link.

 

interface Bridge-Aggregation6
 description Link to Cisco
 port link-type trunk
 port trunk permit vlan all
 link-aggregation mode dynamic



interface GigabitEthernet1/0/15
 port link-mode bridge
 port link-type trunk
 port trunk permit vlan all
 port link-aggregation group 6

interface GigabitEthernet2/0/15
 port link-mode bridge
 port link-type trunk
 port trunk permit vlan all
 port link-aggregation group 6

 

Don't just type the commands in though; order is important!

  1. Create the bridge aggregation (bagg) (int br 6)
  2. name it and set mode dynamic (this may be optional, but it keeps it consistent with the ProCurve connections)
  3. Go to each interface and add the aggrgation group (port link-aggregation group 6)
  4. Go back to the bagg and type the rest of the setup commands in - these will be automatically applied to the 2 interfaces in the bagg.
  5. Test!
