    Hi, I would like to ask about configuring an ae interface. I did make up for a single ae interface to make it went up. But another case of building an ae interface, there is another one might also a way to configure an ae interface. I would show an article page as follow.


    As they are shown. They have two options to make up an ae interface. The first is using ether-options, and the second is using gigether-options. It seems made as following lines.

    set interfaces ge-0/0/0 ether-options 802.3ad ae0
    set interfaces ge-0/0/1 ether-options 802.3ad ae0​

    or applicable as follow

    set interfaces ge-0/0/0 gigether-options 802.3ad ae0
    set interfaces ge-0/0/1 gigether-options 802.3ad ae0​

    I made an experience. Let just say we have two switches of EX2300. I would like to build a single ae interface, and connect to another switch with the same ae interface. But at one, I use ether-options, and another one is using gigether-options. Then it fails to make the ae interface up. I would sum it if it is incompatible. Then finally I pick on ether-options. I just didn't realize that most of the article given is using gigether-options instead of ether-options to do. What exactly the difference on them?

    Thank you.
