Add/Remove Ethernet Ports to AGG LIND without varying off LIND
Description & Background:
We are using Ethernet Link Aggregation in IBM i, each with two Ethernet ports aggregated. Due to some #EMX0 expansion drawer issues one of those Ethernet ports lost its link. For reliability reasons we tried to add a third Ethernet port to that Ethernet line description. This isn't possible without varying off the line description.
Please change design of IBM i Ethernet Link Aggregation to be able to add/remove Ethernet ports without varying off Ethernet line description. IBM i Virtual IP Adressing is not an option due to problems with changing MAC addresses and our firewall.
