I just wanted to inform those who were considering buying these switches that even though they have 28x 10GbE and 4x 25GbE ports, that they are still capped at only setting up 6 aggregation channels.
Given that their name is AGGREGATION switches, I think the limitation of only 6 channels is a bit too restrictive.
I’m currently enquiring with Ubiquiti if they can increase this restriction on these switches, but I have a feeling I know what the answer will be.
We brought 2 of these switches and linked them together using 2x SFP28 cables, to give us an aggregated 50GbE backbone (technically not 50GbE but you know what I mean), and then intended to link out of these 2 switches to all our other switches, but firstly you can’t aggregate across these 2 switches, so you’re stuck with still putting your links into one switch, but then your also limited to only 5 aggregated links when one of the aggregations is assigned to the link between the 2 switches.
I just wanted to give people a heads up on this in case others are considering doing this.
Has anyone used these switches and just opted to leave the ports un-aggregated and just live with one out of 2 or 4 ports being inactive (failover mode) ?? Ideally that’s ok for resiliency but I really hoped to be able to use LACP to load balance rather than just have failover for all our other swtiches.
