Configuring Link Aggregation on PowerConnect
From Console enter the following Commands:
Interface ethernet e30
Channel-group 1 mode auto (or Active on FW 4.x and higher)
Copy running-config startup-config
The Enable command brings us into privileged exec mode so we can enter configuration mode.
The Configure command brings us into configuration mode to make the changes.
The Interface Ethernet e30 command takes us into the interface we wish to perform a configuration change on. This command will vary from switch to switch. Use Interface ? to see complete syntax for the switch you are currently using.
The Channel-group 1 mode auto command specifies this interface will be a part of Link Aggregation Group 1 and specifies the Link Aggregation type will use LACP. For a static Link Aggregation group use on instead of auto. (Note: PowerConnect switches running firmware versions at 4.x and Higher use Active instead of auto to specify LACP.)
The End command takes us out of configuration mode and into privileged exec mode.
The Copy running-config startup-config command saves the configuration from RAM and puts on NVRAM to use when the switch first boots.
