LACP connection between Dell PowerConnect 5324 and 6248

Hello,
     I currently have two Dell PowerConnect switches models 5324 and 6248 connected by a single gigabit ethernet cable. There is quite a bit of traffic between these two switches and I would like to try out link aggregation using LACP. The configuration seems straightforward, as it looks like I can just configure this in the GUI by assigning the relevant ports to the LACP group, hook them up and then all should be well. But I don't want to assume this is the case if there are any caveats to this setup. Also, what settings should I specify on the LACP settings page?

Thanks in advance for any help.

As long as the ports that are in the LACP LAG are identically configured, you should have no issues.

Ok, great! I will try this as soon as I can. Will setting this up require a reset of the switch? Or can it be done live? (Should I do this on the weekend, or can I do it say after hours?)

I would do it on during off hours. It does not require a reset of the switch.

Ok, awesome. Looking through the dell manual, I see some info on LACP, but not that much. Is it best practice to change any of the LACP parameters? Or should they remain at default? Also, from what I see, I can just click the buttons for LACP on the relevant ports, hook them up, and I'm good, right?
