I have a Zywall USG 1000 UTM gateway appliance and an VMware ESX Server and after reading the documentation I found that both support the creation of port goups. I have read up on LACP and was hoping if someone could clarify the differences between a Port group and an LACP LAG group?
Ideally I would like to create port groups on the ESX Host and on the Gateway appliance and connect them to my switches using LACP so that the connections would have aggregated bandwidth and failover. I was however unsure whether port groups and LACP lag groups were compatible and what the differences were.
Any assistance in helping me clarify these issues would be most appreciated.
