The MPS must have an LEC associated with it so the MPS can communicate with other MPOA devices in the ELAN. Although more than one MPS can be associated with an interface, you can bind an LEC to only one MPS. Example 10-6 shows how to associate an MPS with an LEC. Note that only one statement is required to do this. If you enter the lane client mpoa command before you actually enable the LEC, you receive an alert informing you of this. This is all right and can be ignored, as long as you remember to enable an LEC. Without the LEC, the MPS is operating, but incapable of supporting MPOA operations. This results from its inability to communicate with any other MPOA devices in the ELAN.
