LACP and VLACP configurations
« on: September 04, 2013, 10:39:41 AM »
Hi, I am in an organization where we use multiple 8600/8300 switches (Distribution & Access layers) and Cisco Nexus (7010) as a core. We wanted to implement LACP and VLACP features as a security measure. Please help where should I enable LACP and where should I enable VLACP. We have dual Distribution switches connecting to single Access switch. We do run MLT and R-SMLT.

If you are connecting Avaya gear to Avaya gear using a MLT link, you should be looking at using VLACP on those links to verify they are indeed working as advertised.  But VLACP is an Avaya proprietary protocol, so it won't work with anything else.  That's when you should be looking at LACP since it should work with everyone's gear.

No, Nortel/Avaya switches do not support VLAN pruning.  If you put a VLAN on a trunk port, it will always be there.
