In this scenario, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:
Error: Trunk trunk_name cannot be activated due to the following: Invalid External Port address. Please choose a different port.
This problem occurs because the external port number of the trunk is automatically set to 0. Because 0 is an invalid port number, the array configuration cannot be applied.
To resolve this problem, install the service pack that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
