Setup a new XG7100-1U
I having some issue setting my new XG7100 up as I want.
Since its having the internal switch I having struggled with this setting
I've configured as this:
ETH1 - WAN (LAGG0.4090)
ETH2 - ADMIN (LAGG0.10)
ETH3 - LAN (LAGG0.50)
ETH4 - DMZ1 (LAGG0.20)
ETH5 - DMZ2 (LAGG0.100)
My Plans is using the ADMIN interface as administration network (Switches and IPMI Interfaces). And here's where I'm in doubt on how I should build this.
Should this be created as a new VLAN - Interface group - or as a lagg or bridge for gettign the best performance in this. SInce I would like to be able to connect directly to the XG7100 - or through a switch in the other buildings.
So after studying the docs - I'm getting to the point of this should be created as LAGG1 - but not sure at all. so here I need to ask on how the best practice would be.
Since the LAGG0 is using the interface ix2 & ix3, should is it actually that easy to create the LAGG1 - ad the add it as parents interfaces to the VLAN - along with the PVID/VLAN ID for the Switch ?
Do you mean a lagg between the XG-7100 internal switch and your external switch?
If so it won't be named lagg1 in pfSense that would only be configured by adding it as a lagg group to the required ports on the switch config.
However the XG-7100 switch only support the load-balance lagg mode which may not be of help to you here.
Is it working in the config you outlined above?
Yes I have the XG7100 up and running with the above description, but only using Ethernet cables.
My Question is properly wrong described - I would like to use the SFP instead of 4xethernet cables to the same 48ports switch, but all is working as intended and outlined above.
I'm in doubt on how I can add the SFP - so I have both ethernet and SFP in the same configuration, as working together instead seperate interfaces - but not sure on how to do this configuration.
SInce all VLAN have lagg0 as parent interface - how can I create a group so the internal Switch and the fiber are acting as one !
So all my setup is running fine using the Internal switch adn without any SFP port involved (yet)
Ah OK. That is not easily achievable.
You want to add the SFP ports for redundancy? To get a 10G connection?
You can create a lagg of both SFP ports and connect them to the external switch, that would be a preferable setup.
