NetApp 2240 trying to create an LACP IF group

I have a NetApp FAS2220 and two Arista 10 gig switches (HA).  We are trying to create an interface group on both NetApp controllers to work in connection with the port channels on the Arista distribution switches with LACP enabled.

I was trying to do it through the Oncommand System Manager but I have to "down" the interfaces e1a and e1b first.

When I used ifgrp e1a down   I get an error that says it is invalid option on a trunked link.

I need help setting up the port groups and NetApp tech support just says call our professional services.

what is the name of the ifgroup that encompassed e1a and e1b?  If they're lacp you would need to down the entire ifgrp that has e1a and e1b on it.

They aren't lacp

I don't think I have any ifgroups yet

e1a and e1b are physical 10gig ports

THis is what I get when I enter those commands:


ifconfig -a
e1a: flags=0x9f0c867<BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,TCPCKSUM,LRO> mtu 1500
        ether 02:a0:98:55:b9:9e (auto-10g_sr-fd-up) flowcontrol full
        trunked VIF1
e1b: flags=0x9f4c867<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,TCPCKSUM,LRO> mtu 1500
        ether 02:a0:98:55:b9:9e (auto-10g_sr-fd-up) flowcontrol full
        trunked VIF1

VIF1: flags=0x22f4c863<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,TCPCKSUM> mtu 1500
        inet xx.xx.xx.x netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast xxx.xxx.xxx.255
        partner VIF1 (not in use)
        ether 02:a0:98:55:b9:9e (Enabled interface groups)
        nfo enabled




ifgrp create multi VIF1 -b ip e1a e1b
ifconfig VIF1 `hostname`-VIF1 netmask 255.255.255.0 partner VIF1 mtusize 1500 nf                                                                                                                                                             o

you have created VIF1 which e1a and e1b are a part of.  so if you want to down the ifgrp you would down VIF1.

I would create a simple ifgrp to keep make it easier.

Are the Netapp ports going into the same switch or does each port go into a different switch (if so are the switches stacked on the backplane?)

At the end of the day what are you having an issue with and what are you trying to accomplish?
