The interface group function binds the status of several interfaces to form a logical group. If any interface in the group is faulty, the status of the other interfaces will be down. After all the interfaces return to normal, the status of the interface group will be Up. The interface group function can binds the status of interfaces on different expansion modules.
Creating an Interface Group
To create an interface group, take the following steps:
- Select Network > Interface Group.

- Click OK.
You can click Edit or Delete button to edit the members of interface group or delete the interface group.
