I am new to setting up link aggregation and I currently have a Cisco SG300 switch and a Dell 2650 server which has 2 nics that support link aggregation. My switches currently have 3 vlans and I would like to aggregate the two nics on the server so that they can communicate with other devices on the network that are in Vlan 1. I've made several attempts to get this to work but no success.
First... when I aggregate the server nics, do I have to assign a Vlan to the virtual interface and if so do I set it as tagged or untagged?
Next...on the switch side do I assign my ports as general, access or trunk?
Do I need the assigned ports to the vlan or do I assign the lag to the vlan?
Thanks for whatever help you can offer.
