Sun Trunking LACP Mismatch With Nexus Switch (Doc ID 1931207.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 8.0 to 10.0]
SPARC

Symptoms

When trying to update the firmware on the Nexus switches, the switch reports that there are problems with the connections using Sun Trunking.  

The switch is reporting that they are using short-timers, and thus preventing proper failover.  

Previously when the customer  updated the switch, a shutdown of all the Sun Trunking switch connections before the update (i.e. disconnect the servers).  This is not an option in production.
