interfaces bonding <dpFbondx> mode

Sets the bonding mode for an Ethernet link bond group.

set interfaces bonding dpFbondx mode { active-backup | lacp | balanced }
delete interfaces bonding dpFbondx mode
show interfaces bonding dpFbondx mode

lacp is the default mode.

dpFbondx
The identifier a bond group. The identifier ranges from dp0bond0 through dp0bond99.
active-backup
Uses an interfaces of a Link Aggregation Group as the active (primary) interface. A different interface becomes active if the primary Ethernet interface fails. The Link Aggregation Group interface MAC address is externally visible only on the active interface.
lacp
Uses LACP to dynamically create aggregation groups that share the same link speed and duplex settings.
balanced
Uses a hash to distribute the transmit load across member links. This mode exhibits the same behavior as the LACP mode, but it transmits without the control protocol.
