Use LACP ports to create the flexible switch stack

Is it supported to use multiple ports in link aggregation with LACP, for the flexible switch stacking as shown in this example:

 

https://documentation.meraki.com/MS/Stacking/Switch_Stacks#Configuring_a_Flexible_Switch_Stack

 

The document says that ethernet ports can be used but does not mention if they can be multiple in LACP.

 

Kindly help.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Use LACP ports to create the flexible switch stack

Stacking ports don't use LACP.  They use ther own stacking protocol.  You need two ports on each switch to be configured for stacking.  The ports between the switches should be configured as a ring.

 

Once the switches are stack you can use LACP across the switches in the stack to other things, but you would not use LACP between the switches in the stack.
