Two IP address from same subnet on an 1 Aggregated Interface

L0 Member

Hello All, 


I am pretty new to Palo Alto, wanted to check if the an aggregated port in PA can be assigned with 2 IP addresses from same subnet, say and The Idea is the ethernet interfaces 1 & 2 that are be bonded to ae will be connected to the two core switches (port 1 to switch 1 and port 2 to switch 2). After configuring the AE, I wanted to build a BGP relationship between PA and switches using the two AE IPs.


Would this be possible?

You can only have a single IP address assigned to any given interface (an AE is logically one interface) or sub interface. I guess if you wanted to you could configure two sub interfaces on your AE interface and setup BGP peering on both links, but I struggle to see the advantage of doing so.
