Trunk Ports on Standalone Fortiswitch 148E POE



I want to know how many trunk ports can i configure on a standalone fortiswitch 148E POE. 

I want to configure 18 different ports as trunk ports but when i am going to configure the 17th it does not let me.

I managed to configure all 18 ports as trunk ports when only if i create new trunk and put on that trunk 2 or 3 ports inside that trunk. But when i want to check if the trunk is working (with 2 or 3 ports), it does not working properly as it should.

When i create a trunk with 1 port configure, is working properly. 

I am doing all the appropriate configurations.
