Configuring Static Trunking for Link Aggregation
To statically configure a Link Aggregation Group (LAG), also known as trunk, you can use the trunk-create command.
For example, in order to aggregate the three links connected to ports 1, 2, 3 on a switch, use the following steps:
1. Create a trunk called trunk-1 on ports 1, 2, 3 by entering the following command:
CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-create name trunk-1 ports 1,2,3
2. To verify the result of the configuration, use the trunk-show command:
CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-show
name port speed autoneg jumbo
-------- ----- ------ ------- ------
trunk-1 1-3 10g off off
 
3. You can modify the trunk configuration for example by removing port 2 from the group:
CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-modify name trunk-1 port 1,3
4. Verify the updated trunk configuration:
CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-show
name port speed autoneg jumbo
-------- ----- ------ ------- ------
trunk-1 1,3 10g off off
 
 
Notice that the list of ports has changed from 1-3 to 1,3 indicating that port 2 is no longer a member of the trunk.
To remove the trunk from the switch, use the trunk-delete command:
CLI network-admin@switch > trunk-delete name trunk-1
Verify that the trunk configuration is removed again by using the trunk-show command.
