Configure link aggregation among cards on S series switches.

Note the following when you configure link aggregation on S series modular switches:
1. Interfaces of different Ethernet types or rates cannot be added to the same Eth-Trunk. For example, you cannot add GE interfaces and FE interfaces to the same Eth-Trunk, but you can add GE electrical interfaces and GE optical interfaces to the same Eth-Trunk.
2. The two ends of the Eth-Trunk must use the same number of interfaces, interface rate, duplex mode, and flow control configuration.
3. The remote interfaces directly connected to the local Eth-Trunk member interfaces must also be added to an Eth-Trunk; otherwise, the two ends cannot communicate.
4. When you connect the two devices, ensure the link aggregation modes on the two devices are the same.
5. There are strict limitations in link aggregation between boards.
