Configuring Interoperation Between CE Series Switches and Servers Using Broadcom Network Adapters (IEEE 802.3ad Mode)

Configuring Interoperation Between CE Series Switches and Servers Using Broadcom Network Adapters (IEEE 802.3ad Mode)

Applicable Products and Versions

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

Networking Requirements

As shown in Figure 3-8, the server uses Broadcom network adapters and needs to interconnect with CE series switch in link aggregation mode for load balancing.

Figure 3-8 Interoperability between a CE series switch and a server

Configuration Roadmap

The network adapter group in load balancing mode can meet the preceding requirement. The configuration roadmap is as follows:
  1. Create an Eth-Trunk on the CE series switch and configure the Eth-Trunk to work in static Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) mode to improve interface bandwidth and reliability.
  2. Configure the network adapter group to work in dynamic link aggregation (IEEE 802.3ad) mode to improve link reliability and interface bandwidth and implement link load balancing.


  1. Configure an Eth-Trunk and a VLAN on the CE series switch.

    <HUAWEI> system-view 
    [~HUAWEI] sysname SwitchA 
    [*HUAWEI] commit 
    [~SwitchA] vlan batch 2                             //Create VLAN 2. 
    [*SwitchA] interface eth-trunk 1 
    [*SwitchA-Eth-Trunk1] mode lacp-static                     //Configure the Eth-Trunk to work in static LACP mode.
    [*SwitchA-Eth-Trunk1] trunkport ge 1/0/1 to 1/0/2         //Add the two interfaces connecting SwitchA to servers to Eth-Trunk.
    [*SwitchA-Eth-Trunk1] port default vlan 2  
    [*SwitchA-Eth-Trunk1] commit 

  2. Configure a network adapter group on the server.
    1. Obtain and install the Broadcom network adapter management software, that is, Broadcom Advanced Control Suite.
    2. Open the software and select TEAM VIEW from the Filter drop-down list.

    3. Right-click Teams and choose Create Team.

    4. Click Next.

    5. Enter the name for the network adapter group, for example, Team 1, and then click Next.

    6. Select 802.3ad Link Aggregation using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) and click Next.

    7. Select network adapters to be bound, click Add to add the network adapters to the group, and then click Next.

    8. Select Skip Manage VLAN and click Next.

    9. Select Commit changes to system and Exit the wizard and click Finish. A network adapter group is created.

    10. 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 Team 1 and choose Properties. In the displayed window, select 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.

Configuration Verification

  1. Run the display eth-trunk [ trunk-id ] command in any view to check the Eth-Trunk status. Verify that the Eth-Trunk status is normal based on key information in Table 3-15.
    <HUAWEI> display eth-trunk 1
    Eth-Trunk1's state information is:

    Check Item

    Normal Status

    Working Mode

    Static: The Eth-Trunk is working in static mode.

    Operating Status

    Up: The Eth-Trunk is Up.

    Number Of Up Ports In Trunk

    Number of Up member interfaces in the Eth-Trunk. If the value is the same as the number of member interfaces, the Eth-Trunk is normal.


    Selected: The member interface is selected as an active interface.


    Weight of a member interface. If all member interfaces have the same weight, the Eth-Trunk is normal.

  2. On the CE series switch, ping the IP address of the server in the user view. The ping succeeds.

  3. Check properties of the created network adapter group Team 1. On the Network Connections page, right-click the created network adapter group Team 1 and choose Properties. In the displayed window, click Config and select the Settings tab page. Check the network adapter group status based on the information in Table 3-16.
