Extreme vsp7200 SMLT - cisco UCS FI port-channel
« on: January 24, 2020, 07:50:10 AM »
I have 8 links connecting two cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect to two Extreme VSP7200 switches.
two port-channels configured on cisco UCS FI :
FI-A port-channel id3 ----(4 links)----> Extreme SMLT id3
FI-B port-channel id4 ----(4 links)----> Extreme SMLT id4

The network team did a configuration change then multiple links shown as "Failed" on cisco UCSM.
I received Avaya running configuration as below:

-------------------- vsp7200-switch-A -------------------------

---------------------------------------------
I have 3 questions:
1. The "lacp key" must equal the "partner-key" otherwise the link will fail. right?
2. What is "partner-state 4"? Does this affect the link or causes it to fail?
3. I see some settings NOT set on all ports, like:
        no spanning-tree mstp  force-port-state enable
        sflow sampling-rate 20000
        sflow counter-interval 2
        sflow collector 1
does this affect the link? what is the impact of deleting this block, so that settings will be similar to other ports?
