Best loop detection for load balancing links on single vlan

Best loop detection for load balancing links on single vlan

Best loop detection for load balancing links on single vlan

(OP)
Hi all,

I run a nonprofit lan for a gaming community, we have 5 Summit 400-48t (48 port gigabit switches) and 1 x450e as the core

Now what we do is just use the default mgt vlan and create 4 port LAGS on the x450e that connect to each switch (so each switch has a 4 gigabit connection back to the core)

I also enable lbdetect on each switch, but what I want to know is what would be the best way to enable loop back incase some one plugs a LAG in the incorrect port on another switch? but I also dont want it to bring down the main 4 port lag between the switch.

Any help greatly appreciated.
