I want to connect two Dell Powerconnect 6224 switches with LAGs to increase bandwidth and make redundant connectivity.
I'm using the GUI. I can go to the LAG membership page and add the ports I want to LAG 1. Let's say I want to use ports 23 and 24 on both switches. I would set that on both switches.
The thing i'm worried about is causing some kind of loop once I connect them. I've read a couple things that have me worried, such as "configure the LAG before you connect the switches." Also some stuff about Spanning Tree Protocol.
So it sounds to me like there is some danger in what i'm doing and i'm not finding all the info I need to piece it together.
Can a loop be caused by what I'm doing? Does Spanning Tree need to be configured? What are the logical steps to setting up LAGs without having issues?
When you create a port channel such as a Dell LAG multiple ports get treated as one logical port, spanning-tree sees them as one logical port which removes the possibility of causing a spanning-tree loop
