Description

by serial console

  • update switches to latest EOS that we have
  • Setup default passwords
  • Connect to existing switches, understand the existing mlag configuration
    • show running
  • Setup mlag on new switches switch: switch5, switch6
    • find out whether mlag / ipv6 works
    • not sure if the mlag vlan needs to be unique (??)
  • Setup hostnames (switchX-placeY)
  • Checkout that switch config is clean / empty

Connect / configure place9 switches

  • with mlag
  • test that it works between your switches

Add IPv6 addresses to switches

  • Use the transfer network
  • Checkout [[datacentelight:Networking]]

connecting to existing switches

  • Connect high numbered ports from switch5 and switch6 to high numbered ports on switch1/switch2
    • Ping nico at this stage
  • Create a port-channel with mlag over two switches connecting to switch3/switch4
  • Place that port-channel intro trunk mode
  • port channel number = first interface number in the port channel
    • i.e. ethernet 51/52 -> port-channel 51
  • Containing 4 ports (2 per switch)
  • switch3/4 will be configured by Nico (=the other side)
