Is LACP with Normal Uplinks possible

I need to setup a NIC team, using LACP on a Dell Server.

 

I have two switches, up-linked together (not stacked).

 

Is it possible to create a LACP group, two ports, one port from each switch?

Unfortunately, no. There

Unfortunately, no. There needs to be single device controlling all links for LACP to work correctly, so stacking is a minimum requirement for your switches to do this.

If you're looking for failover functionality in the event of a switch failure, there are other options depending on what you're running on that server. You can bridge the two links and rely on the switches' spanning-tree protocol to block one of them, for example.
