How to configure a switch after the iSCSI host ports on a storage array are bound?

Storage arrays support only the 802.3ad binding mode.
The 802.3ad mode is also known as the dynamic link aggregation policy. Under this policy, multiple ports on a network adapter work in the same activated aggregation group and share the same rate and duplex mode.
After the iSCSI host ports on a storage array are bound, dynamic link aggregation needs to be configured for the ports on the switch connecting to the storage array. For example, on a switch, ports 19 and 20 are connected to a storage array, and then the method for configuring link aggregation of the dynamic LACP mode is as follows:
system-view
System View: return to User View with Ctrl+Z.
[S-Switch]interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/19
[S-Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/19]lacp enable
LACP is already enabled on the port!
[S-Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/19]quit
[S-Switch]interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/20
[S-Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/20]lacp enable
LACP is already enabled on the port!
[S-Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/20]quit
NOTE:
After the dynamic link aggregation is enabled for some ports on a switch, the switch automatically adds the ports to an aggregation group.
