MLT on Baystack 450-24T

MLT on Baystack 450-24T

(OP)
Hi Folks,

I have a cascade of 6 Baystack 450-24T switches 3 of the sitches have a fibre Gbic modules and I have configured a 3xiGb MLT with members ports 1/25, 2/25 and 3/25.

I want to remove 1/25 from the MLT, but when I try, I get the message ..

This is an active trunk. Please zero out port # before changing the unit #.

Can anyone explain this message and advise me on how to progress?

RE: MLT on Baystack 450-24T

What are you using to change the config?

What is your switch stack config (relevant bits only).

Hi Mr Whirlwind,

I am using the command-line interface, after using telnet to access the address of the cascade.

  • telnet <cascadeIP>
  • Ctrl-Y
  • Switch Configuration
  • MultiLink Trunk Configuration (twice)
  • Highlight the switch part of one of the 3 Trunk members
  • Press the space bar untill the trunk changed from 1/25 to /25

  • This gave the error message above!!

    However in doing this I realised that if I first highlighted the port
    part of the trunk and pressed the space bar untill 1/25 became 1/ .
    Then I could then go on to 'zero' the switch part subsequently.

That's the Menu thing isn't it? I wouldn't use that. Better to use the command line or the JDM.

I found for multi-link trunk config (and VLANs), the JDM was the easiest and quickest way to configure it.

RE: MLT on Baystack 450-24T

Hi,

If I remember well, you have to disable your MLT before adding / removing a port from it.
Once the change is done you can enable the MLT again.

Cheers,
