Hi Sali,

This link should give you a good idea of how those ports work:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/7.4/configuration/guides/consolidated/b_cg74_CONSOLIDATED_chapter_011010.html

Ultimately, you can only assign a single "port" number to your management interface with LAG disabled.  With LAG enabled, it is similar to an etherchannel setup where you are bundling all the connected ports together. 

Cheers,
Erwin

Hello,

As per your query i can suggest  you the following solution-

The management interface  acts like an AP-manager interface by default, and the access points can  join on this interface.

We recommend using link aggregation (LAG) or  configuring dynamic AP-manager interfaces on each Gigabit Ethernet port  to automatically balance the load. If more than 100 access points are  connected to the Cisco 5500 Series Controller, make sure that more than  one Gigabit Ethernet interface is connected to the upstream switch.

Hope this will help you.
