A LAG group on the X1018P managed switch is real easy but switch port configuration is not available on the TZ 500. Is there a way to set it up for 2 ports like x0 and x2 on the firewall and e15 and e16 on the switch? How would I configure the firewall ports? Is this a PortShield Group????

  • KorXo is correct, you can't do this on the TZ series (only higher end NSA and NSA E-Class allows link aggregation). I just wanted to add: a PortShield group joins 2 or more ports into a logical bridge (switch) that act the same -- so instead of X0 and X2 being separate interfaces if they are in a PortShield they are the same (X2 is "linked" to X0 as if connected to the same 'switch' internally).

  • This article implies that it can be done, naming the TZ Series in the "categories" section. I don't have the link aggregation choice in the named drop-down, however.

  • And this article says it's available on Gen 6 devices. But I don't have the drop-down mentioned. sonicwall.com/en-us/support/knowledge-base/170505763142649

You can't do it on Sonicwall device. TZ series doesn't support link aggregation. Check this doc http://documents.software.dell.com/sonicos/


the only way is to add a 3rd switch with a trunk connecting the other 2 switches with their trunks and the third switch port 16 to the sonicwall Tz500 and creating the vlans on it
