Allow FortiSwitch Trunk mode selection on FortiGate

In an LACP trunk, ports with the same negotiated speed are grouped into an aggregator. Setting the aggregator mode allows you to select the aggregator based on either the bandwidth or the number of links.

FortiSwitch version 6.4.0 and later are supported.

To configure the aggregator mode for a FortiSwitch managed by FortiGate:
config switch-controller managed-switch
    edit <switch>
        config ports
            edit "trunk_server1"
                set aggregator-mode {bandwidth | count}
                set vlan "default.13"
                set type trunk
                set mac-addr 90:6c:ac:de:35:fe
                set mode lacp-active
                set members "port11" "port12"
            next
        end
    next
end

Where:

bandwidth

The aggregator with the largest bandwidth is selected (default).

count

The aggregator with the largest number of ports is selected.
