Cisco LACP Individual State with 3rd Party Devices

I work a lot with other products like HP Dell-Brocade, and EMC. There are times I need to port-channel to them but my ports end up in (I) individual. The main cause for this is that the other device is not sending LACP PDU’s. So like in my case most the time, the other device I’m port-channeling to is not configured correctly. It’s a problem with the other device’s configuration.
