I'm trying to configure Link Aggregation between my two switches, on the DELL switch, there is only an option to include a port in a "LAG Group." On the Cisco's I've tried creating an EtherChannel group with "Dynamic Desirable" (set to negotiate). I have also tried to setup the ports as 802.11Q as well as ISL Link (both with same results)
When I plug in the cables, I can see that the links come up for each individual port, but the trunk does not.
I can see the status of each individual "port" on the Cisco as well as the EtherChannel group from the Cisco and each of the individual ports show status "stand-alone."
The lights on the Cisco switches start orange (normal) and eventually go to green, but I cannot get any traffic across the cross-connect. If I remove all "configuration" and use a single cable, everything works fine. I'm trying to get some additional speed with the LAG.
Any thoughts on what I should try?
