Introduction

The following information provides examples for setting up an IRF 3.1 system.

IRF 3.1 integrates multiple lower-layer devices with a higher-layer IRF fabric to provide high-density, low-cost connectivity at the access layer. IRF 3.1 is implemented based on IEEE 802.1BR.

In an IRF 3.1 system, the higher-layer IRF fabric is called the parent fabric and the lower-layer devices are called bridge port extenders (PEXs). You manage and configure the PEXs from the parent fabric as if they were interface modules on the parent fabric.

Prerequisites

The configuration examples were created and verified in a lab environment, and all the devices were started with the factory default configuration. When you are working on a live network, make sure you understand the potential impact of every command on your network.

The following information is provided based on the assumption that you have basic knowledge of IRF 3.1.

Example: Setting up an IRF 3.1 system

Network configuration

As shown in Figure 1:

·          At the distribution layer, set up an IRF 3.1 system in which devices Member 1 and Member 2 is the parent fabric.

·          Configure the IRF 3.1 system to provide gateway services for VLANs 10, 20, and 30.

·          Connect access layer devices to the PEXs in the IRF 3.1 system through multichassis link aggregation. The PEXs are S5130S-52S-HI switches.

Figure 1 Network diagram

 

Restrictions and guidelines

To assign extended ports on multiple PEXs to the same Layer 2 extended-link aggregation group, make sure the PEXs meet the following requirements:

·          The PEXs belong to the same switch series.

·          The PEXs are in the same PEX group.

·          The PEXs are at the same tier.

Procedures

Setting up the parent fabric

1.        Configure Member 1:

# Set the member ID of Member 1 to 1.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] irf member 1

# Bind Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/2 to IRF-port 1.

[Sysname] irf-port 1

[Sysname-irf-port1] port group interface ten-gigabitethernet 1/0/1

[Sysname-irf-port1] port group interface ten-gigabitethernet 1/0/2

[Sysname-irf-port1] quit

# Save the running configuration to the next-startup configuration file. The device automatically reboots after you change the device operating mode. The save operation prevents the device from configuration loss after the device reboot.

[Sysname] save

# Enable IRF mode. The mode change takes effect after an automatic device reboot.

[Sysname] chassis convert mode irf

The device will switch to IRF mode and reboot.

You are recommended to save the current running configuration and specify the configuration file for the next startup. Continue? [Y/N]:y

Do you want to convert the content of the next startup configuration file cfa0:/

irf.cfg to make it available in stack mode? [Y/N]:y

Now rebooting, please wait...

2.        Configure Member 2:

# Set the member ID of Member 2 to 2.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] irf member 2

# Bind Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/2 to IRF-port 2.

[Sysname] irf-port 2

[Sysname-irf-port2] port group interface ten-gigabitethernet 1/0/1

[Sysname-irf-port2] port group interface ten-gigabitethernet 1/0/2

[Sysname-irf-port2] quit

# Save the running configuration to the next-startup configuration file.

[Sysname] save

# Connect the IRF physical interfaces of Member 1 and Member 2 as shown in Figure 1.

# Enable IRF mode. The mode change takes effect after an automatic device reboot.

[Sysname] chassis convert mode irf

The device will switch to IRF mode and reboot.

You are recommended to save the current running configuration and specify the configuration file for the next startup. Continue? [Y/N]:y

Do you want to convert the content of the next startup configuration file cfa0:/

irf.cfg to make it available in stack mode? [Y/N]:y

Now rebooting, please wait...

Member 1 and Member 2 perform master election and the device that has failed the master election automatically reboots to form an IRF fabric with the other device.

Configuring cascade ports for PEXs on the parent fabric

# Enter system view.

<Sysname> system-view

# Enable LLDP globally.

[Sysname] lldp global enable

# Create PEX group 1.

[Sysname] pex group 1

[Sysname-pex-group-1] quit

# Create Layer 2 aggregate interface Bridge-Aggregation 100. The aggregate interface will act as the cascade port to the PEX in chassis 100. For easy maintenance, this example assigns the aggregate interface the same interface number as the PEX virtual chassis.

[Sysname] interface bridge-aggregation 100

# Enable PEX connection capability on Bridge-Aggregation 100 and assign Bridge-Aggregation 100 to PEX group 1.

[Sysname-Bridge-Aggregation100] pex-capability enable group 1

The aggregate interface is operating in dynamic aggregation mode and acting as an STP edge port.

# Assign virtual chassis number 100 to the PEX.

[Sysname-Bridge-Aggregation100] pex associate chassis 100

[Sysname-Bridge-Aggregation100] quit

# Enable LLDP on Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/1/0/3 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 2/1/0/3 in interface range view. By default, LLDP is enabled on a port.

[Sysname] interface range ten-gigabitethernet 1/1/0/3 ten-gigabitethernet 2/1/0/3

[Sysname-if-range] lldp enable

# Assign Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/1/0/3 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 2/1/0/3 to aggregation group 100. The ports will act as cascade member interfaces.

[Sysname-if-range] port link-aggregation group 100

[Sysname-if-range] quit

# Create Layer 2 aggregate interface Bridge-Aggregation 101. The aggregate interface will act as the cascade port to the PEX in chassis 101.

[Sysname] interface bridge-aggregation 101

# Enable PEX connection capability on Bridge-Aggregation 101 and assign the interface to PEX group 1.

[Sysname-Bridge-Aggregation101] pex-capability enable group 1

The aggregate interface is operating in dynamic aggregation mode and acting as an STP edge port.

# Assign virtual chassis number 101 to the PEX.

[Sysname-Bridge-Aggregation101] pex associate chassis 101

[Sysname-Bridge-Aggregation101] quit

# Enable LLDP on Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/1/0/4 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 2/1/0/4 in interface range view. By default, LLDP is enabled on a port.

[Sysname] interface range ten-gigabitethernet 1/1/0/4 ten-gigabitethernet 2/1/0/4

[Sysname-if-range] lldp enable

# Assign Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/1/0/4 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 2/1/0/4 to aggregation group 101. The ports will act as cascade member interfaces.

[Sysname-if-range] port link-aggregation group 101

[Sysname-if-range] quit

Configuring PEXs

Configure the devices to be used as PEXs to operate in auto or PEX mode. This example uses PEX 100 to describe the configuration procedure. You configure PEX 101 in the same way PEX 100 is configured.

Prerequisites

A PEX might allow only some interfaces to operate as uplink interfaces depending on its model. Before you configure a PEX, use its configuration and installation guides to select uplink interfaces as appropriate.

In this example, Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/49 and Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/50 on PEX 100 are used as uplink interfaces.

Procedure

# Change the operating mode to auto mode. By default, the operating mode is auto.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] pex system-working-mode auto

# Save the running configuration.

[Sysname] save

# Connect the uplink interfaces on PEX 100 to the cascade member interfaces on the parent fabric, as shown in Figure 1. (Details not shown.)
