Aggregate Ethernet Interface with Subinterfaces

L1 Bithead

Hi there,

I'd like to set up a PA-5060 with an aggregate Layer 3 ethernet interface with no address:

Aggregate Interface

Name: ae1

Type: Layer 3

Address: (none)

Virtual Router: (none)

Tag: (none)

Security Zone: (none)

and then add subinterfaces to it, each of which have their own IP address ranges and VLAN tags:

Subinterface

Name: ae1.100

Type: Layer 3

Address: 10.10.100.1/24

Virtual Router: default

Tag: 100

Security Zone: Trust

Subinterface

Name: ae1.200

Type: Layer 3

Address: 10.10.200.1/24

Virtual Router: default

Tag: 200

Security Zone: Trust

Is this a valid configuration?

Thank you,

Hello Rick,

PAN supports sub-interfaces on aggregate interfaces.

An excerpt from Panos Admin guide:

"Aggregate interface groups allow you to generate more than 1 Gbps aggregate throughput by

using 802.3ad link aggregation of multiple 1 Gbps links. Aggregation of 10Gbps XFP and

SFP+ is also supported. The aggregate interface that you create becomes a logical interface.

Interface management, zone profiles, VPN interfaces, and VLAN subinterfaces are all

properties of the logical aggregate interface, not of the underlying physical interfaces.

Each aggregate group can contain several physical interfaces of the type Aggregate Ethernet.

After the group is created, you perform operations such as configuring Layer 2 or Layer 3

parameters on the Aggregate Group object rather than on the Aggregate Ethernet interfaces

themselves."

Yes, the config is good and will work.

Dileep

Yes it will work.

I set up exactly like Rick_Rutherford but I would to set up DHCP for ae1.100 (10.10.100.2 -250) but it doesn't let me create the DHCP.

Any one know why?

 

thanks,
