im following this pdf to make the MC-LAG configuration but there is something i didnt get
in the page 33
set protocols iccp peer 184.108.40.206 backup-liveness-detection backup-peer-ip 10.105.5.5
the ip 10.105.5.5 is it point to point FXP0 ip or what? and should i advirtise it by ospf
set interfaces irb unit 100 family inet address 192.168.10.2/24 arp 192.168.10.3 mac 00:1f:12:b6:6f:f0
what command to show me that needed mac, show int irb.100 ex?
thanks in advance
Backup-liveness-connection is optional and has always confused me as well. Unfortunately, the documentation is clear as mud on this subject. See here (FYI if you select the CLI Explorer re-direct, you'll just end up in a loop!):
Basically as far as I know it is just a second connection between the nodes other than ICCP/ICL to test if other node is up or not. Therefore additional protection if ICCP goes down. A better solution, IMHO, is to put in additional redundancy for ICCP/ICP. I always recommend these be put together as part of an AE that is split HW wise across different modules. Requires at least 2 faults to physically have this link go down.
Yes, FXP0 can be used for this - most common method?? I think so. As for learning within OSPF, I'd think no. Just need communication across this link between the 2 nodes.
As for interface mac, I'd suggest you use either:
show interface extensive (look for hardware address)
show interface ge-x/y/z extensive | match hardware
This should work for both physical and logical interfaces
Just FYI for anyone reading this article, Juniper is moving away from MC-LAG as one the preferred solution, to instead use EVPN/VXLAN (or MPLS depending upon product) almost exclusively. If you have a greenfield deployment, I might suggest it is a good idea to consider an EVPN based architecture, or at least consider this technology.
Good luck, HTH.
is it the same MAC that showing when doing the command
show lldp neighbors?
I believe yes, maybe someone else could confirm 100%.
dose this worning looks familiar to you
"warning: prefer-status-control-active is used with status-control standby. Use this command only if BLD is configured"
its showing while commiting i didnt do the backup-liveness-detection since you mentioned its optional.
