Trunk grouping -verification

  • 1.  Trunk grouping -verification

    Posted 01-19-2016 08:57 AM

    I inherited a bunch of DCX switches and they are connected via a fully meshed fabric, two ISLs per switch.  When I checked it looks like the ISL connections are not grouped, each ISL is a master.  It is my inderstaning that trunk groups have to be in the same portset(???) in other words ports 0-7, 8-15, 16-23 etc.  Can you please verify that the reason my ISLs won't trunk is because they are not in the same group of ports?

    Yes, these port groups are called "trunk groups" for exactly that reason.
