VXRAIL 10 GIG as ACTIVE STANDBY

In VXRAIL  guide below on page 25 , its mentioned uplink 1 is active and uplink 2 is standby we wanted to know why VXRAIL would want to be active standby instead of active active (Port Channel)

Re: VXRAIL 10 GIG as ACTIVE STANDBY

I've recently asked the same question to this community as well as our DellEMC folks as well as VMware. VMware recommends port channeling of all uplinks carrying mgt, vmo, vsan traffic.

However due to the way DellEMC deploys and manages VxRail clusters they do not support it. Hoping this will change at some point.
