A common networking configuration for servers is to have two network cables going up to redundant upstream switches. The default bond configuration for these two connections is Active-Standby. This means that only one upstream connection would be used at a time. However, utilizing the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) found on both the upstream network switch and AHV servers would allow for both upstream connections to be used concurrently.
Previously, to change from the default bond configuration to LACP, the command line interface for each host was the only option. Now, this configuration change can be done directly from the Prism Interface starting in AOS 5.19.
