configure sharing lacp activity-mode

configure sharing port lacp activity-mode [active | passive]


Configures whether the switch sends LACPDUs periodically (active) or only in response to LACPDUs sent from the partner on the link (passive).

Syntax Description


Specifies the master logical port for the LAG you are setting the activity mode for.


Enter this value to have the switch periodically sent LACPDUs for this LAG.


Enter this value to have the switch only respond to LACPDUs for this LAG.



Usage Guidelines

You must enable sharing and create the LAG prior to assigning this LACP activity mode.



One side of the link must be in active mode in order to pass traffic. If you configure your side in the passive mode, ensure that the partner link is in LACP active mode.

To verify the LACP activity mode, use the show lacp lag group-id detail command.

If you attempt to enter a port number that is different that a LAG group ID, the system returns the following error message:

ERROR: LAG group Id does not exist


In ExtremeXOS version 11.3, the activity mode cannot be changed from active.


The following command changes the activity mode to passive for the specified LAG group ID:

configure sharing 5:1 lacp activity-mode passive


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.4.
