Do you think I need to set the speed and duplex on both interfaces? Currently they are set to auto...

why do they both have the same MAC address? that doesn't seem right. and one of them seems to be linking at 100m, you got something going on with the pfsense box it looks like. you shouldn't have to manually configure the speeds

When I do a show interfaces brief on the ICX6610 active controller, all the interfaces Mac addresses are the same.. Check it out... Weird...

that's normal on the switch side, every port in a VLAN will have the mac of the VE interface

However I've never seen duplicate MACs like that in pfsense, are you sure you didn't accidentally set the MAC of one of the interfaces?

Hmmm, but do you also have stacking enabled (on just the 40gbE ports)? PGlover and now someone else in PM's cannot get the breakout ports to work with a passive DAC, they both can only seem to get one or two of the breakout channels to come up. PGlover has the cisco breakout cable and the guy in PM's has one from fiberstore

Really curious to figure this one out, I wonder what's going non

@PGlover your LAN and guest interfaces both have the same MAC address, not sure how that happened. And also LACP does not support links with different speeds in the same group, so the switch is probably blocking the 100mbps interface for it's own good. Do you have a bad interface or cable on that link? Are you sure it's plugged into the right ports on the pfsense box (eg the same ports you created the lag with)

The cable is Cisco compatible. It is a Monoprice cable. I was really upset because I thought the cable was from Cisco.

It really shouldn't matter, they're all the same electrically and brocade is vendor agnostic when it comes to optics and DACs. I'm starting to think you have something else going on

Yes.. It's a subinterface in pfSsense over LAGG1. LAGG1 carries the LAN and GUEST vlans (Vlan 2000 and Vlan 30).

Yes.. But let me double-check....
