Rate-Limiting error with LACP
There is a very misleading error message in the Nortel / Avaya Enterprise Routing Switches. It occurs when you try to configure LACP / 802.3ad.
This stupid error:
"ports have bad rate limiting config"
You need to chose a different aggregator key for this. The switch doesn't auto assign the keys on ports for enabling active LACP.
Finally, don't forget to optimize the failure detection and failover times. To achieve a 1-3 second failover, set the LACP fast rate using:
No VLAN error with LACP
This error can occur while you configure a LACP trunk
Showing the running config made me find that "my" ports 4/45-46 were in fact not in the desired VLAN and had a old, wrong PVID
I had to:
- disable LACP
- reset the port to untagged
- put it back in the desired VLAN
Same port key is used by ports belonging to different VLAN

LACP trunks not working
I have ended up with a scenario where the LACP links, after a reconfiguration, were still showing PDUs in show lacp debug, but were no longer listed in show mlt
Solution was to set the lacp key once more.
