Make a software switch of Aggregate ports



I am new to this forum, but I already have found some interesting topics, nice job!


As company we bought a fortigate 200e and would like to set it up as follow :


1)Create 3 aggregate-ports

802.3ad Aggregate-port : port11-port12-port13-port14

802.3ad Aggregate-port : port15-port16

802.3ad Aggregate-port : port17-port18


2)Combine these 3 ports in a software switch


But we are not succeeding in step 2, we are working with the GUI-interface.


Are there any solutions for this problem?


Thanks in advance.


Kind Regards

I don't believe it is possible to add aggregates into a soft switch.


The only solution would be to have the aggregates going into a separate switch and then from that switch into the fortigate.


I think can be.


When you create each Agg port on Step 1, just disable auto create address object matching subnet,

and see the result on Step 2.
