Need Help with Creating a Port Channel to connect dell VRTX server with switch Using a cisco 3560v2

Need some help getting this port channel enabled on my cisco 3560v2.

I'm trying to connect  Dell VRTX server in a LACP LAG Trunk with Vlan tagging.

Here is how the ports are configured.


Cisco Switch Config


interface Port-channel1
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk native vlan 10
switchport mode trunk
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/1
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk native vlan 10
switchport mode trunk
channel-protocol lacp
channel-group 1 mode active
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/2
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk native vlan 10
switchport mode trunk
channel-protocol lacp
channel-group 1 mode active

Dell Switch Config

interface gigabitethernet0/1
channel-group 1 mode auto
switchport mode trunk
!
interface gigabitethernet0/2
channel-group 1 mode auto
switchport mode trunk
!
interface Port-channel1
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan 10

I cant seam to get this to work.

the whole cisco config is long. but I can post it if needed.

Hello,

the config looks good and should work as is. There is a bug that keeps the channel on the Cisco from forming when the configuration of the interfaces was entered while the interface was in 'shut' mode. I would do the following:

1. Remove all channel configs (both the port channel and the config on the GigabitEthernet interfaces)

2. Make sure both GigabitEthernet interfaces are up

3. Configure the port channel

4. Configure the GigabitEthernet interfaces with the interface range command (use the exact config you used before)

Here is the link to the bug:

https://bst.cloudapps.cisco.com/bugsearch/bug/CSCsq36972

Change it to static both sides channel-group 1 mode on and then post the show etherchannel summary and show LACP int po1  please

Do I need to setup sub interfaces. I can post the whole cisco and dell config if needed.

No you shouldn't need subs , change it to ON mode both sides so its not negotiating to try and force it and then post the outputs requested above so we can see the status from each side cisco and dell

I tried to change it on. and the protocol changed and got the same results.

The network adapter is using win2012r2 a just using the dynamic teaming.

if I change it to LACP and such it does not even connect the adapter ports.

I'll post the configs maybe I'm missing something

I made the text blue in the cisco config where the port channel stuff is used.

config looks ok , I would check the teaming as the Cisco output is saying it cant aggregate with (w) , have you tried changing to diff types of lag on server side instead of dynamic ?

I just cant seam to figure out how to make this work.

Since nothing seems to work, you might as well try the weird and unlogical, such as setting your trunks ports on the Cisco to 'switchport mode trunk dynamic desirable' or 'switchport mode trunk dynamic auto'. Or try and change the channel ports on the Dell to two of the other external ports, 3 thru 8 instead of 1 and 2.

Well I rebooted the server that the internal Lag was connected to in the VRTX. and for some reason when I did that. it made the LACP channels  active. but I could never get the servers to see the vlans or access the network. I tried many things to reconfig to make it work and nothing works. So I guess I just need to get some help from some where to figure it out.

I was wondering: can you get the trunks up separately, that is,not in a port channel ? Maybe you can try to bring them up one by one and then join them into the port channel ?

have you set teaming on the server side correctly at the nic ?  the original config and the on mode should both work looking at docs , so original config should have worked too , something is blocking it from bonding correctly and the configs are correct
