Aggregated interfaces on PA 5250

L2 Linker

Hi there,


We are implementing aggregated interfaces on PA 5250. I have configured 10 aggregated subinterfaces from two physical interfaces. when I enabled the LACP on the aggregated interface group, the maximum interfaces is set to 8 by default. I believe this is number of physical interfaces that are active at any given time right? if that is it, in my case do I have to set that value to 1 cause I only aggregated two physical interfaces? 


Please let me know your thoughts.


Best regards,

LACP only applies to the physical interfaces.

Most devices support "only" 8 physical interfaces, bonded as on link aggregation group

Best Regards


Thank you for the response. Right, but we can change that value though from 8. So, in my case I should set that to only 1 right?

Ah, okay - that is only an index to differentiate different aggregated groups.

You already create ae8 - so this value cannot be changed, you would need to delete the ae and add it again with index 1.


So that's no problem, it's just an index number like tunnel.1, tunnel.3 etc.

Best Regards
