    Netra NEM port-channel config for inter-chassis communications

    821031
      I need to connect 2x Netra 6k chassis together, via the QFSP port on the NEM's.

      I have NEM0 of Chassis 0 connected to NEM0 of Chassis1 and the same for NEM1 on both
      chassis's.

      I am using ports Ex0/7-10 on both NEM's.

      I have captured an initial config from a master NEM and blasted the same config to
      each NEM, via load_uri on the SP.

      I am unable to get the port-channel to come up. The interfaces are up and port-channel is enabled

      Here are the interface details:

      The LA documentation is lacking for debugging the NEM.

      Are there any white papers or docs to assist with VLAN and LA config/troubleshooting for the NEM?

      Thx
