Associate a connection with a LAG - Amazon Direct Connect
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Associate a connection with a LAG

You can associate an existing connection with a LAG. The connection can be standalone, or it can be part of another LAG. The connection must be on the same Amazon device and must use the same bandwidth as the LAG. If the connection is already associated with another LAG, you cannot re-associate it if removing the connection causes the original LAG to fall below its threshold for the minimum number of operational connections.

Associating a connection to a LAG automatically re-associates its virtual interfaces to the LAG.


Connectivity to Amazon over the connection is interrupted during association.
