- No, ports with different media types (SFP & SFP+) cannot be combined together to form a LAG.
- In EXOS, the following two conditions must meet when creating a LAG (sharing group) with two or more ports:
- Port Speed has to be the same.
- Port Media Type also has to be the same.
Therefore, it has to be either SFP+(10G)<->SFP+(10G) & SFP+(1G)<->SFP+(1G) OR SFP(1G)<->SFP(1G) combination of ports to form a LAG.
- For example, you have two 1G SFP links with different media types and maximum port speed
Switch Name: Media Type: Maximum Port Speed:
X450G2-48p-10G4 <--------------> SFP+ <-----------> 10G
X450G2-48p-G4 <--------------> SFP <-----------> 1G

- You have an existing LAG with port 1:28 being a master port of the LAG

- Now if you configure port 2:25 to become a member port of the above LAG, the following error will be displayed:
