HA using Redundant Interface

Hi All,


I'm Planning to configure A-A HA using two 200E Fortigate Model. i Want to create Full Mesh Topology using two Switch in stacking and connecting as per Attached diagram and steps.


What i want to achieve is to create a redundant interface using two physical interface from each FGT cluster unit  connecting to two Switch in stacking.


 Make  the following physical network connection for FGT ha1

port1 to Sw1 (active)

port2 to Sw2 (inactive)



Make the following physical network connection for FGT ha2

port1 to Sw2 (active)

port2 to Sw1 (inactive)


So would i need to create a port channel (LACP) between ports of SW1 & Sw2 connecting to FGT ha1 port 1 & port2 and same for SW2 & Sw1 ports Connecting  FGT ha2 port 1 & port2, OR it works without configuring LACP on respective Switches ports connecting to respective FGT cluster unit port. 


Any help wil be highly appreciated
