Networking Requirements

Figure 1 Basic MLAG Topology

In Figure 1, SwitchB dual accesses the network through SwitchA1 and SwitchA2 using LACP LAG.

At first, SwitchB accesses the network through SwitchA1. If SwitchA1 or the link between SwitchB and SwitchA1 fails, SwitchB cannot communicate with the network. To avoid service interruptions, we can configure MLAG on SwitchA1 and SwitchA2. When communication between SwitchB and SwitchA1 fails, traffic from the SwitchB will be switched to SwitchA2 seamlessly. When SwitchA1 or the link between SwitchB and SwitchA1 recovers, traffic from the SwitchB will be switched back to SwitchA1.

The peer link between SwitchA1 and SwitchA2 is configured to carry MLAG related control traffic and is very critical to the operation of MLAG function.

Procedure

SwitchA1

Step1         Configure the VLANs.                   

   admin@SwitchA1# set vlans vlan-id 15

                  admin@SwitchA1# set vlans vlan-id 16

                  admin@SwitchA1# set vlans vlan-id 4088 l3-interface vlan4088

                  admin@SwitchA1# set interface aggregate-ethernet ae1 family ethernet-switching port-mode trunk

                  admin@SwitchA1# set interface aggregate-ethernet ae1 family ethernet-switching vlan members 15

                  admin@SwitchA1# set interface aggregate-ethernet ae1 family ethernet-switching vlan members 16

Step4         Configure an MLAG domain ID.

    admin@SwitchA1# set protocols mlag domain 10

    NOTE: Currently, only one MLAG domain is allowed to be configured on one MLAG device.

Step5         Specify SwitchA1 as MLAG Node 0.

    admin@SwitchA1# set protocols mlag domain 10 node 0

Step6         Configure the peer IP address and peer link port.

    admin@SwitchA1# set protocols mlag domain 10 peer-ip 10.10.0.2 peer-link ae2

    NOTE: Peer-link port should be configured as a LAG port.

Step7         Configure the L3 interface IP address for peer link port on local MLAG peer device.

                  admin@SwitchA1# set vlan-interface interface vlan4088 vif 4088 address 10.10.0.1 prefix-length 24

Step8         Configure link ID for the MLAG member port.

                  admin@SwitchA1# set protocols mlag domain 10 interface ae1 link 2

   NOTE: The paired MLAG member ports must be bound to the same MLAG link ID.

Step9         Configure MLAG peer VLAN.

   admin@SwitchA1# set protocols mlag domain 10 peer-ip 10.10.0.2 peer-vlan 4088

Step10       Commit the configuration.

   admin@SwitchA1# commit

SwitchA2

The configuration on SwitchA2 is the same as SwitchA1.

Step1         Configure the VLANs.                   

   admin@SwitchA2# set vlans vlan-id 15

                  admin@SwitchA2# set vlans vlan-id 16

Step2         Configure MLAG interfaces with LACP mode.

                   admin@SwitchA2# set interface aggregate-ethernet ae1 aggregated-ether-options lacp enable true

Step3         Add member interfaces to a LAG.               

   admin@SwitchA2# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/1 ether-options 802.3ad ae1

                  admin@SwitchA2# set interface gigabit-ethernet te-1/1/49 ether-options 802.3ad ae2
