Vlan, Trunk and Access ports in Nortel 8600
« on: January 31, 2016, 11:37:22 PM »
Experts,

I am trying to connect two Cisco ASR 920 routers at both end of Nortel 8600 switches. The two Cisco ASR have IP address configured X.X.X.1/30 and X.X.X.2/30 in both end. I did not able to make this working. There is a WAN/Trunk link between the two Nortel 8600 already. Here are the things I did and it will be good to know if you can provide me some advice how to fix this. I know it is pretty simple thing and I could not make this working though....

1. Create a VLAN and allocate the Cisco ASR ports as access ports.
vlan XXX ports add 1/43 member portmember

2. Add the above vlan to the  existing MLT for WAN.

vlan XXX create byport 1 name "XXXXX_Backup"
vlan XXX add-mlt 16

Let me know please if there is a trouble shooting guide I can follow as well. Surprisingly, the same set-up is working for another site.

Just want to add here that there are multiple VLAN groups and I believe that I need to add the VLAN in right group so that the access ports and WAN ports are in the same group and ports are forwarding.

This is a point to point VLAN and I am trying to extend two router connection over this Nortel 8600 network.
Any advice will be great.

Cisco#1 - Access port to 8600#1 - Also access port.  New VLAN ID.
MLT has new VLAN tagged to it on 8600#1.
MLT has new VLAN tagged to it on 8600#2.
8600 #2 has access port created with new VLAN assigned.
Access port on Cisco#2 connects to new 8600#2 access port.

That's what you are doing?

Thank you Tank for your post TankII.
Please see the attached diagram.

It will be good to know what will be the trouble shooting steps and commands in Nortel 8600. There are multiple VLAN groups and I believe I need to create VLANs and add to the right group. So that all ports are in forwarding state.

Any link to a good documentation/troubleshooting guide will help a lot.
