Link Aggregation Configuration Page Options

Procedure

  1. Select Configure>Interface>Link Aggregation in the J-Web user interface.

    The Link Aggregation configuration page appears. Table 130 explains the contents of this page.

    Note Link Aggregation menu to configure aggregated Ethernet (ae) interfaces is not available when the device is in cluster (HA) mode. To configure redundant Ethernet (reth) interfaces in the HA mode, navigate to Configure > Device Settings > Cluster Configuration.

  2. Click one:
    • Global Setting—Creates an Link Aggregated Ethernet interface, or LAG. You can choose the number of device that you want to create. Enter information as specified in Table 131.

    • Add Logical Interface—Adds logical interfaces to the configured port. See Table 132.

      Note Logical Interface is supported only for Layer 3 inet or inet6 family.

    • Enable/Disable—Enables or disables the configured aggregated interface. A message appears to confirm if you want to enable or disable the aggregated interface.

    • Add or +—Adds a new link aggregation configuration. Enter information as specified in Table 133.

    • Edit or /—Edits a selected link aggregation configuration.

    • Delete or X—Deletes a selected link aggregation configuration.

  3. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.

    • Commit Options>Commit—Commits the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.

    • Cancel—Cancels your entries and returns to the main configuration page.
