Use this command to specify the primary interface within the Ethernet link bond group

This option is available only when the bonding mode is Active Backup.

When the bonding mode is Active Backup and an interface is identified as the primary, the primary interface is always the only active member of the bonding interface so long as it is available. Only when the primary is offline are alternates used.

This option is useful when one member link is to be preferred over another; for example, when one member link has higher throughput than another.

Use the set form of this command to designate an Ethernet interface as the primary interface for Ethernet link bonding.

Use the delete form of this command to remove the primary Ethernet interface as the primary interface for Ethernet link bonding.
