Creating interface groups

You 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. Expand the Cluster hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. Select the cluster, and then click Configuration > Network.
  3. In the Network window, select the Ethernet Ports tab.
  4. Click Create Interface Group.
  5. 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
  6. Click Create.
