Configuring LACP + PAgP on a Cisco catalyst 6513 switch for different ports on same module
Posted on 2009-04-01
Currently we only have spare ports on module 12 & 13 of our Catalyst 6513 (running
CatOS). On BOTH of these two modules, there are a couple of ports that are aggregated
to our old HP Blade (BL45p, BL25p which I was told has an old Cisco switch built-in) and
there are also a couple of ports on both modules that are aggregated to our new HP Blade
(BL680p which I was told has a HP switch built-in) : all using PAgP protocol (as I was
told by our network administrator).
These few days, we took delivery of several HP Itanium servers that come with built-in
VC (Virtual Connect) that could only support the industry standard LACP which needs
link aggregation to our Cisco 6513.
Is it possible to use a few ports from the existing module to aggregate them to connect
to the new Itanium blade servers? Thus on the same module in the 6513, we will have
a mix of LACP and PAgP aggregated ports?
Kindly give me the commands step by step plus some useful link if possible
