Is it possible to create a LAG between a Netapp CN1610 and a Dell Networking N series switch (Dell N2048)? I have the 2 switches connected however, I cannot get them to communicate with each other. I am not sure if it is not possible or maybe something in the configuration is not correct.
Your assumption is correct. We are not using the Netapp CN1610 for a Netapp cluster switch. We have a single CN1610 switch installed with a twinax cable connected between the CN1610 and the Dell N series switch. Here are the current configs for each switch....
Dell N2048 port-channel config
interface port-channel 2 description "10g LAG to Netapp Cisco" switchport mode trunk switchport trunk allowed vlan 10,100 exit
Dell N2048 port config
interface Te1/0/2 channel-group 2 mode on exit
Netapp CN1610 port-channel config
port-channel name 3/2 N2048-LAG interface 0/1 no auto-negotiate addport 3/2
interface 3/2 description 'N2048 LAG - port 1' vlan participation include 10,100 lacp admin key 0 exit
Netapp CN1610 port config
interface 0/1 description 'LAG to N2048 switch' exit
The lacp shows active on the Dell switch and it is sending PDU's. However, it is not receiving any PDU's from the CN1610.
I initially had the Dell port set to "active" however, the lacp was showing inactive. When I set to "on" it became active. The reason why I set it to "on" is because that is the only way I can configure the lacp as static. I would prefer to have a dynamic LAG but I can only setup a static lag on the netapp side.
