Link aggregation and Spanning Tree on ALCATEL 7800 switches
Posted on 2005-05-09
Hi, heres the set up....
im bench testing 2 Alcatel 7800 Switches, the current config copied from 2 existing Switches.
the current switches use Spanning Tree using 2 fibre ports, one port blocking, the other forwarding.
on the bench i've added to the current configuration an aggregated link using gigabit Ethernet.
now I have 2 active conections conecting the switches.
- 1 Gigabit Fibre link forwarding (with another blocking Span Tree)
- 1 Aggregated link gigabit ethernet.
now i'm sure this is a Loop in the network between the 2 switches?? am I right?
if so why doesnt the spanning tree doesnt block the forwarding conection??
