Hello all,I have an two SRX 1500 set as chassis cluster.I am trying to create aggregate ethernet (ae#) not a redundant ethernet (reth#) using 2 physical ports each from one Node and the other Node.I have been successful with just one Node ae0 interface but I get an error when I try to commit the configuration using a port from different nodes with the same link speed to form an aggregate ethernet for lacp. Below is the configuration that works for ae0 on the same chassis and one that does not work with different chassis.ON NODE 0 ONLY (success):set interfaces xe-0/0/18 ether-options 802.3ad ae0set interfaces xe-0/0/19 ether-options 802.3ad ae0set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options lacp passiveset interfaces ae0 unit 0 family ethernet-switching interface-mode trunkset interfaces ae0 unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members VLAN1set interfaces ae0 unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members VLAN2set interfaces ae0 unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members VLAN3USING NODE 0 AND 1 (failure):set interfaces xe-7/0/19 ether-options 802.3ad ae1set interfaces ae1 aggregated-ether-options lacp passiveset interfaces ae1 unit 0 family ethernet-switching interface-mode trunkset interfaces ae1 unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members vlanWAN1set interfaces ae1 unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members vlanWAN2According to the documentation, you cannot have an aggregate ethernet using different node ports, like I am trying to setup. It says I should use redundant ethernet.But my manager tells me that it is possible but does not remember how it is done.I am at a loss on trying to figure this out. Is there something I can do to make this work or is this just not possible?Thank you for your time!
