In this video, I review the creation of a Link Aggregation Group (LAG) on my home lab’s HP V1910-24G switch. While the process is relatively straight forward, I found it different enough from the process on a Cisco switch that it was worth recording. Also, I really couldn’t find any other documentation on it elsewhere and the fact that I had to go back and configure the LAG’s VLANs threw me off at first.
With that said, the HP V1910 sure has been a lot of fun to work with and makes a great home lab switch based on the price, features, and warranty / support that you get. I feel like I got my money’s worth.

High Level Configuration Tasks
- Set the load balance policy on the vSwitch connected to the Link Aggregation uplinks to “Route based on IP Hash” and make sure all uplinks are marked Active
- Create a new Link Aggregation group on the physical switch with LACP Disabled (Static mode)
- Set the Port Type for the LAG to Trunk
- Add the necessary Tagged VLANs to the LAG Trunk
