Configuring Aggregated Devices (NSM Procedure)

The Junos OS supports the aggregation of physical devices into the defined virtual links, such as the link aggregation of Ethernet interfaces defined by the IEEE 802.3ad standard. You can configure the properties for Ethernet and sonet aggregated devices on the router.

To configure the aggregated devices on the router:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Chassis > Aggregated Devices.
  4. Add or modify the settings as specified in Table 31.
  5. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
