Creating interface groups

You can use System Manager to create an interface group—single-mode, static multimode, or dynamic multimode (LACP)—to present a single interface to clients by combining the capabilities of the aggregated network ports.

Before you begin

Free ports must be available that do not belong to any broadcast domain or an interface group, or that host a VLAN.


  1. Click the Network tab.
  2. In the Ethernet Ports tab, click Create Interface Group.
  3. In the Create Interface Group dialog box, specify the following settings:
    • Name of the interface group
    • Node
    • Ports that you want to include in the interface group
    • Usage mode of the ports: single, multiple, or LACP
    • Network load distribution: IP based, MAC address based, sequential, or port
    • Broadcast domain for the interface group, if required
  4. Click Create.
