Disassociating a Connection From a LAG

You can disassociate a connection from a LAG to convert it to a standalone connection. You can't disassociate a connection if it causes the LAG to fall below its threshold for the minimum number of operational connections.

Disassociating a connection from a LAG does not automatically disassociate any virtual interfaces. You must associate the virtual interface with the connection separately. For more information, see Associating a Virtual Interface with a Connection or LAG.
