Single FortiGate managing a single FortiSwitch unit

On the FortiGate unit, the FortiLink interface is configured as a physical or aggregate interface. The 802.3ad aggregate interface type provides a logical grouping of one or more physical interfaces.

NOTE:

  • For the aggregate interface, you must disable the split interface on the FortiGate unit.
  • When you are using the aggregate interface on the FortiGate unit for the FortiLink interface, the lacp-mode of the FortiLink aggregate interface must be set to static. Unless MCLAG is enabled and you are using 6.2.0 or later, see Transitioning from a FortiLink split interface to a FortiLink MCLAG for details.
