start orchestration mlag
Ensures configuration consistency between controlling bridges (CBs) in a redundant CB environment with bridge port extenders (BPEs) or This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, 5720 series switches. peers.
|orchestration||Specifies entering orchestration mode in redundant controlling bridges environments.|
|mlag||Multi-switch link aggregation group.|
|peer_name||Name of the MLAG peer controlling bridge (switch).|
With redundant CBs attached to each BPE, the associated extended port configuration must be identical on each controlling bridge. To reduce the configuration complexity and to minimize the risk of inconsistency, you can use orchestration mode so that any configuration commands are now checkpointed to the MLAG peer switch. Before entering orchestration mode, ensure that any configuration parameters (connecting ports for the BPEs, VLAN names, numbers etc.) are the same for both CBs.

NoteMLAG peer checkpoint status must be 'up' to enter orchestration mode.
NoteEnabling orchestration mode on both MLAG peers at same time is not recommended. If orchestration mode is enabled on both MLAG peers and you execute commands on both switches at same time, the switch may abort execution of the command.
The following example enables orchestration mode on the controlling bridge (switch) with its MLAG peer "bottom":
# start orchestration mlag "bottom"
