Removing link aggregation: what to watch out for?

Postby DIngo » Tue Dec 26, 2017 2:53 am

Hi

I need to move my DiskStations on my network (different subnets and IPs).
I currently have link aggregation set up and working.
I want to make sure I do not lock myself out or loose access to the DiskStation.

Are there any particular thinks I need to pay attention to?

My planned process is:
1/ Go into the DiskStation's network settings and delete the bond (assuming the individual connexions will be restored automatically)
2/ Then go my switch and remove the bond there
3/ Reboot DiskStation

Can anyone advise whether these are the right steps and in the right order?

Many thanks :)

Yes. That's all.
I had no need to reboot my DS. It got 2 IP addresses on each LAN port and I could access it on either. After removing the second cable the 2nd IP got away as expected.

when I was trying to remove bond1 (link aggregation), it didn't go through with pop-up message saying

"the action has been stopped for following reason. please resolve the issue and try again.

Mailplus server
"

problem still exists even I stopped the mailplus server. any clues?

Your options appear to be:

1) Uninstall Mailplus, remove bond, reinstall
2) Reset the NAS which will reset your network settings and admin password.

I'd choose option 2).

Have you found an answer to this issue? I have the same problem. I cannot delete my network bond because ... mailplus server. I stopped both mailplus server and mailplus but that didn't solve the problem.

Press the reset button which should nuke the bond.
