Can the CRS317 do LAG in hardware yet?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 12:33 pm

Mikrotik stated last year that the CRS317 cannot do LAG in hardware when using RouterOS:

viewtopic.php?t=120500#p608992

I don't see any mention of a change in the changelog. Has this problem been resolved yet? If so, is any guidance available for configuring it?

Thanks, Chris

Since RouterOS 6.42rc23 LAG interfaces are hardware offloaded on CRS3xx series devices.

Thanks. I was trying to avoid using an 'rc' version in production. Can you give any clue as to when 6.42 will be released?

When all the new features will be tested and confirmed, you should try it out on your test network, before 6.42 comes out. or else there is a big chance that in your setup something is missing or not working as you expected, and then you will have to wait for one more release.
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.
