I am trying to configure link aggregation (LACP) from a server to a HP 2920-48G switch. The server has a 4 port Intel NIC that supports LACP, and a OS that natively supports LACP as well.
The switch has three modes for LACP, Passive, Active, and a separate "LACP Trunk" which appears to be primarily a proprietary option for trunking HP switches together. I have tried all three options on the two ports I am attempting to aggregate with no success. I have also read that I must have GVRP enabled on the ports, then forbid those ports from joining the default VLAN (as I am attempting to aggregate on a different VLAN then the default) to get dynamic LACP working. I have tried that with all three previous options and I still cannot get a working connection.
Any ideas on where I am failing?
