Is there a command to limit the number of links that we want bundled in an LACP etherchannel or is the limit always 8 as default? I want to test with 4 ports in the bundle with priority 100 and a 5th port with a higher priority. I want to test how the 5th port will join the etherchannel once one of the four active links fail. But as of now even the 5th port has a higher priority it becomes part of the etherchannel... that's whay i am looking for a command to limith the etherchannel to 4 links.

The 5th port will join the channel but it should be on 'Hot-Standby' mode. Please supply the output from the show ether
channel summary

Please note; the connected device must also be configured this way.
