1. Create the Inter-Switch Connection (ISC) Description: The ISC provides an out-of-band IP communications path between the 2 MLAG peer switches to exchange keep-alive packets and to checkpoint various state information between switches. On the Left BlackDiamond 8800 switch: e n a b l es h a r i n g2 : 1g r o u p2 : 1 , 3 : 1 c r e a t ev l a ni s c c o n f i gv l a ni s ct a g3 0 0 0 c o n f i gv l a ni s ca d dp o r t2 : 1t a g c o n f i gv l a ni s ci p a d d r e s s1 . 1 . 1 . 1 / 2 4 On the Right BlackDiamond 8800 switch: e n a b l es h a r i n g2 : 1g r o u p2 : 1 , 3 : 1 c r e a t ev l a ni s c c o n f i gv l a ni s ct a g3 0 0 0 c o n f i gv l a ni s ca d dp o r t2 : 1t a g c o n f i gv l a ni s ci p a d d r e s s1 . 1 . 1 . 2 / 2 4 2. Create the MLAG peer and associate the peer switch's IP address Description: By creating an MLAG peer you associate a peer name that can be associated with the peer switch's IP address and other peer configuration properties. The peer is then bound to each individual MLAG port group. On the Left BlackDiamond 8800 switch: c r e a t em l a gp e e r r i g h t B D 8 K c o n f i gm l a gp e e r r i g h t B D 8 K i p a d d r e s s1 . 1 . 1 . 2 On the Right BlackDiamond 8800 switch: c r e a t em l a gp e e r l e f t B D 8 K c o n f i gm l a gp e e r l e f t B D 8 K i p a d d r e s s1 . 1 . 1 . 1 3. Create the MLAG port groups Description: Creates an MLAG port group by specifying the local switch's port, the MLAG peer switch, and an "mlag-id" which is used to reference the corresponding port on the MLAG peer switch. The specified local switch's port can be either a single port or a load share master port. On the Left BlackDiamond 8800 switch: e n a b l em l a gp o r t1 : 1p e e r" r i g h t B D 8 K "i d1 e n a b l em l a gp o r t1 : 2p e e r" r i g h t B D 8 K "i d2 On the Right BlackDiamond 8800 switch: e n a b l em l a gp o r t1 : 2p e e r" l e f t B D 8 K "i d1 e n a b l em l a gp o r t1 : 1p e e r" l e f t B D 8 K "i d2 4. Verify MLAG peers and ports are operational Description: After MLAG groups are configured, you can verify the connections via the show mlag peer and show mlag ports commands. Be sure to note the peer status, the Local Link State, and the Remote Link status. On the Left BlackDiamond 8800 switch: B D 8 8 1 0 . 5#s h o wm l a gp e e r M u l t i s w i t c hL i n kA g g r e g a t i o nP e e r s : M L A GP e e r On the Right BlackDiamond 8800 switch: B D 8 8 1 0 . 3#s h o wm l a gp e e r M u l t i s w i t c hL i n kA g g r e g a t i o nP e e r s : M L A GP e e r 5. Add ISC port to VLAN Description: The ISC port must be added as a member port for any VLAN that has MLAG member ports. c r e a t ev l a n x y z On the Left BlackDiamond 8800 switch: c o n f i g u r ev l a n x y z a d dp o r t1 : 1 ,2 : 1t a g g e d On the Right BlackDiamond 8800 switch: :l e f t B D 8 k V L A N :r i g h t B D 8 k V L A N :i s c :i s c
