Avaya 5698 Stack to Cisco 6500
« on: October 01, 2013, 12:03:03 PM »
Hi all,

I was hoping to find out what configuration would be best. I have a Stack of 5698 Avaya switches and would like to connect to 2 6500 Cisco. Now the Cisco 6500 acts as 1 so the second switch acts as a virtual. There is a VSL setup accross both switches. I would like to MLT the Avaya 5698 Stack using the 10 GIG ports to each 6500 Cisco 10 Gig ports. My question here is can I create just a etherchannel on the Cisco and just create a MLT on the Avaya switch side or do I need to add LACP? Any info qould be greatly appreciated.

Thank you both.
Flinstone - I will not be creating a SMLT environment because the Cisco 6500's are setup as virtually 1. My question is can I just create a etherchannel for two 10gig ports on the 6500's and just create a MLT 1 on the switch stack?

Hi jcny21,
Yes, etherchannel on Cisco and MLT on Avaya.  No LACP :)
