LACP question

I was given this design to implement on our PA 5050's. This would be to segregate a user segment (4500x-VSS) from the data center (7K's vpc). Can anyone tell me if this is a valid LACP connection? I have never seen it done without a Stacking or VPC link on the other end of the port-channel connections, in this case the Palo 5050's. I am going to try to set it up in our lab but i was hoping someone could tell me if it is even valid and if you would need specific code to make it work. The PA's are active/standby not in v-wire, they would be routed connections to the 7k's and 4500x's. The 7k’s do have a VPC link and the 4500’s are VSS.

Hello,

One thing to remember is that the standby PAN has its interfaces shutdown so those ports are not UP in the view of the 7K's. What I have done in the past is just remove the extra 'leg', i.e. each 7K only connects to one PAN. The way it is drawn should also work if you have routing setup correctly. 

 

Hope that helps.
