Creating a Link Aggregation

In a link aggregation, the underlying ports become a single logical group for the aggregation's exclusive use. Thus, the ports cannot be used for anything else. However, you can configure VNICs on top of the aggregation itself.

Before creating the link aggregation, you must remove any existing IP interface on these ports.

Note -  Link aggregation works only on full-duplex, point-to-point links that operate at identical speeds. Make sure that the datalinks in your aggregation conform to this requirement.
