Having a little trouble getting 802.3ad nic teaming working on two 5230 appliances. I've configured teaming before on Windows 2008 servers and it seems to work fine. The network team configures LACP on the switch side, and on the server side, I create the team in 802.3ad mode. On the appliance however, I create the bond, and on cli as well as through the web interface of the appliance, it looks to be created and functional, but on the switch side it doesn't look to be active.
The bond has been created with eth1,2 and 3 ports (1 Gb/s). The web interface shows them all as up, and the network configuration shows the correct IP on bond0(eth1,eth2,eth3) with bond mode at 802.3ad. On the switch side, for some reason, the bond automatically splits into 2 separate bonds, 1 bond with eth1 and the other with eth2 and eth3. Both bonds show with LACP configured.
We have two identical appliances, and we have tried configuring bonding on both appliances and the exact same thing happens.
Has anyone come across this, or have any suggestions of what else to check?
