Setting up trunking for Access Gateway

Use the following steps to set up trunking under Access Gateway.

Make sure that all of the conditions specified under "Trunking in Access Gateway mode" are fulfilled. For Edge-switch implementation details, refer to the "Trunking in Access Gateway mode" chapter in the Fabric OS Access Gateway Administrator's Guide.
  1. On the AG-mode switch, in privileged EXEC mode, enter the configure command to change to global configuration mode.
  2. Enter the interface FibreChannel rbridge-id/slot/port command for each port that you are adding to the trunk.

    A configuration submode prompt appears.

  3. Enter the trunk-enable command.

    The following example configures the link attached to port 4 on RBridge 8 to be part of a trunk group.

    switch# configure
    Entering configuration mode terminal
    switch(config)# rbridge-id 8
    switch(config-rbridge-id-8)# interface FibreChannel 8/0/4
    switch(config-FibreChannel-8/0/4)# trunk-enable
  4. Toggle the AG-mode port.
    switch(config-FibreChannel-8/0/4)# shutdown 
    switch(config-FibreChannel-8/0/4)# no shutdown 
  5. Toggle the Edge-switch port. Port trunking is now in effect between the specified ports.
If you move trunk-group ports out of their common port group, the trunk slave ports will be disabled. If this happens, recover by entering shutdown and then no shutdown for each disabled port.
