configure sharing lacp defaulted-state-action

configure sharing port lacp defaulted-state-action [add | delete]


Configures a defaulted LAG port to be removed from the aggregator.

Syntax Description


Specifies the master logical port for the LAG you are setting the default action for.


Enter this value to have the switch add defaulted ports to the aggregator for this LAG.


Enter this value to have the switch delete defaulted ports from the aggregator for this LAG.



Usage Guidelines

You must enable sharing and create the LAG prior to configuring this LACP parameter.

You can configure whether you want a defaulted LAG port removed from the aggregator or added back into the aggregator. If you configure the LAG to remove ports that move into the default state, those ports are removed from the aggregator and the port state is set to unselected.



In ExtremeXOS version 11.3, defaulted ports in the LAG are always removed from the aggregator; this is not configurable.

If you configure the LAG to add the defaulted port into the aggregator, the system takes inventory of the number of ports currently in the aggregator:
  • If there are fewer ports in the aggregator than the maximum number allowed, the system adds the defaulted port to the aggregator (port set to selected and collecting-distributing).

  • If the aggregator has the maximum ports, the system adds the defaulted port to the standby list (port set to standby).


    If the defaulted port is assigned to standby, that port automatically has a lower priority than any other port in the LAG (including those already in standby).

To verify the LACP default action, use the show lacp lag group-id detail command.

If you attempt to enter a port number that is different that a LAG group ID, the system returns the following error message:

ERROR: LAG group Id does not exist


To force the LACP trunk to behave like a static sharing trunk, use this command to add ports to the aggregator.


The following command deletes defaulted ports from the aggregator for the specified LAG group ID:
configure sharing 5:1 lacp defaulted-state-action delete


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.4.
