Aggregating links in static mode

LACP is disabled on the member ports in a static aggregation group. You must manually maintain the
aggregation state of the member ports.

Setting the aggregation state of each member port
Selecting a reference port
The system selects a reference port from the member ports that are:
Are in the up state and have
Have the same class-two configurations as the aggregate interface.
The candidate ports are sorted by duplex and speed in this order: full duplex/high speed, full
duplex/low speed, half duplex/high speed, and half duplex/low speed. The one at the top is selected
as the reference port. If two ports have the same duplex mode and speed, the one with the lower port
number wins.
Setting the aggregation state of each member port
After selecting the reference port, the static aggregation group sets the aggregation state of each
member port.
