Quanta lb6m How To Stack?

Hello everybody,

I have already found some helpful posts in the forum. Now I have registered to ask a specific question about Quanta lb6m switches.
I hope someone can help me with this.

I have build up an vsan cluster with 4 HP Pro Liant DL 380P G8 Nodes with Emulex oneConnect 10 G/bit connected to 2 Quanta lb6m 10G/bit switches.
Also I have a 1 G / bit network with a cisco 3750e switchstack consisting of 4 switches, which runs well.


My problem concerns only the Quanta lb6m switches. There I can stack maximally 2 ports by means of Interswitchlinks by LAG / LACP. More ports are not possible for me so far. The switches do not seem to support that.
It would be interesting to me if I can assemble the two Quanta lb6m into a switch stack or more than the two ports I have.
Does anyone have any idea how this could work?

Edit:
As you can see in the config, three LAGs are configured. but it only works with two.


The exact description of the quantas is:

Thank you in advance for helpful answers

Thanks for the tip, but to flush the quantas is at the moment way to risky. If one of them bricks, I have an expensive problem.
As a last resort I would also consider to flush, but first I want to exclude all mistakes in the config.

In the lb6m_manual I read on page 152 that a maximum of 8 ports for LAG are possible. So I have a bug in my config?
But I cant figured it out.

the fastpath version that's out there for the lb6m is a demo build, it's missing a ton of stuff that the manual mentions (like bgp, a web interface, etc). It was designed to be customized by the purchasing parties, not used in production
