Uplink ports explained

New Contributor III

So sorry for what could be a very basic question but I'm starting to learn about networking and Ruckus.

I've got an ICX 7150 24P switch where I have configured 2 vlans: (1st vlan: 1/1/1 to 1/1/12 and 2nd: 1/1/13 to 1/1/24). I would like to connect this my core switch which also has these 2 vlans.

Could I use the uplink ports? if so, should I have one cable for each vlan or how does this work?

Thank you!

Doesn't seem to work unfortunately. I'm trying to connect this switch to a fortinet fw.

Here is my new test conf:

lag fw dynamic id 1
ports ethernet 1/2/1 to 1/2/2

vlan 3 name test
tagged ethernet 1/1/1 to 1/1/24 lag 1

With the cable connected to the uplink I don't received an ip (the firewall has a dhcp service as a test).

If I connect the ethernet on one of the downlink ports I get an IP of the default lan (not vlan). If I create a vlan conf on my laptop then I received the ip from the vlan correctly.

Also, when I do a show lag I get that both uplink ports are in "blocked" state.

What I'm doing wrong?

At this point I would look to simplify the situation and disable the lag on both ends. Make sure you can get communications working over a single link, and then get the lag configured after that

Ok, so I've got some progress testing and seems the issue is with the LAG:

Changing my lag setup to static made it work!

Thanks a lot guys!
