I'm having LACP issues with some HP gear connected over MCLAG between 2 x AS7326-56X switches. LACP trunks on my HP switches fail due to peer address changes as sonic MCLAG switches the system MAC address from the Active one to the Standby peer. The LACP trunk gets blocked for about 30-45 seconds when the Active MCLAG switch goes down. The same thing happens again when the Active switch comes back online although the LACP outage is more like 15 seconds this time.
I see that Dell's sonic build has an option called mclag-system-mac that can be statically set up so the lacp peers see the same MAC address in case one of the switches goes down.
Is something like this available on ecSONIC builds? I can't seem to find any docs or info on this topic.
