Configuring Interoperation Between CE Series Switches and Servers Using Intel(R) Server Adapter I340 Network Adapters (AFT Mode)

Configuring Interoperation Between CE Series Switches and Servers Using Intel(R) Server Adapter I340 Network Adapters (AFT Mode)

Applicable Products and Versions

This example applies to CE series switches of V100R001C00SPC200 or later versions.

Networking Requirements

As shown in Figure 3-3, a server uses a network adapter group consisting of two Intel(R) Server Adapter I340 network adapters that connect to two switches, respectively. It is required that the two network adapters work in active/standby mode. If the active network adapter or interface connected to the active network adapter fails, traffic can be automatically switched to the standby network adapter, preventing service interruptions.

Figure 3-3 Interoperability between CE series switches and a server

Configuration Roadmap

The network adapter group in active/standby mode can meet the preceding requirement. The configuration roadmap is as follows:
  1. Add 10GE1/0/1 of SwitchA and 10GE1/0/1 of SwitchB to the same VLAN.
  2. Configure the network adapter group to work in adapter fault tolerance (AFT) mode. In this mode, only the active network adapter in the group transmits data. If the active network adapter or link connected to the active network adapter fails, the standby network adapter takes over data transmission.

Procedure

  1. Configure a VLAN on CE series switches. Create VLAN 2 and add Ethernet interfaces connected to the server to VLAN 2. The following uses SwitchA as an example. The configuration of SwitchB is similar to that of SwitchA, and is not mentioned here.

    [~HUAWEI] sysname SwitchA                                                             
    [*HUAWEI] commit

    [*SwitchA-10GE1/0/1] port default vlan 2                                                      
    [*SwitchA-10GE1/0/1] commit                                                      

  2. Configure a network adapter group on the server.
    1. Choose Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center. Click Change adapter settings. The Network Connections page is displayed.
    2. Right-click a network adapter to be added to the network adapter group, and click Properties. The Local Area Connection Properties window is displayed.
    3. Click the Network tab page and click Config under Connect using:. The Intel(R) Ethernet Server Adapter I340–T4 Properties window is displayed.
    4. Click the Teaming tab page, select Teaming with other adapters, and click New Team. The New Team Wizard page is displayed. Create a network adapter group on the page.
    5. (Optional) Name the new group, for example, WF, and click Next.
    6. In the Select the adapters to include in this team area, select network adapters to be added to the network adapter group, and click Next.
    7. In the Select a team mode: area, select Adapter Fault Tolerance, and click Next.

      NOTE:
      You can set the type of a network adapter group in active/standby mode to AFT. Configuration notes for this type of network adapter group are as follows:
      • Each group supports two to eight adapter interfaces.
      • All member network adapters in the group can connect to switch Ethernet interfaces working at different rates or in different duplex modes.

      Before changing the network adapter group type from IEEE 802.3ad to AFT, delete the Eth-Trunk configuration on the CE switch, release the physical interfaces, and assign VLANs to the interfaces. Otherwise, the CE switch cannot ping the server. If the network adapter group type is changed to AFT, the server does not exchange LACPDUs with the switch. As a result, the aggregated link configured on the switch goes Down, and the switch cannot ping the server.

    8. Click Done and wait for the network adapter group configuration to be complete.
    9. Choose Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center. Click Change adapter settings. The Network Connections page is displayed. Right-click the created network adapter group, and click Properties.
    10. Click the Network tab page and double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) to configure the IP address of the network adapter group.
    11. In the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties window, select an IP address obtaining mode, and click OK.

Checking the Configuration

  1. On the CE switch, ping the IP address of the server in the user view. The ping succeeds.
  2. Check properties of the created network adapter group WF. On the Network Connections page, right-click the created network adapter group, and click Properties. In the window that is displayed, click Config, and click the Settings tab page. Check the network adapter group status based on information in Table 3-8.
