1. Create a lacp vif with 2 x 1G 2. Create a single mode vif with 1 x 10G 3. Create second-level Single mode VIF which will favor 10G network over 1G network.
This second-level interface group enables you to define the first-level VIFs as an active and a standby one.
For example: ifgrp create lacp INT-1G -b ip e0a e0b ifgrp create single INT-10G e1a ifgrp create single vif_second_level INT-1G INT-10G ifgrp favor INT-10G
By using second-level VIF it is possible to take advantage of both the link aggregation features of a lcap VIF and the failover capability of a single-mode VIF.
Reboot is not required, but to make these configurations persistent across reboots, they must be added to the /etc/rc file. Also, If you add any entry in /etc/rc files and you want to reload that entry in the memory then you can simple run the cmd “source” toaster>source /etc/rc
On the side note: Please note that lacp port-channel has to be configured on the access switch as well.
if I want it to work without needing to reboot. lets say I already created the interfac groups, assigned an IP using ifconfig, edited host and rc files. Do I still need to do anything to make it work? Do I still need to run the source command?
Ping the interfaces to ensure that the hosts are updated.
Reboot is NOT required. I mentioned source command, it is only required if you make any changes to the existing file or added new entry directly into the file and you want to reload the configuration in the memory without reboot. (This is b'cos any changes to /etc/rc file are effective on subsequent reboot)
