Ok, thanks for that. Here's what those commands you mentioned show:
root at openindiana:/export/home/bluethundr# dladm show-aggr -L
LINK PORT AGGREGATABLE SYNC COLL DIST DEFAULTED EXPIRED
aggr1 e1000g0 yes no no no no no
-- e1000g1 yes no no no no no
root at openindiana:/export/home/bluethundr# dladm show-aggr -x
LINK PORT SPEED DUPLEX STATE ADDRESS PORTSTATE
aggr1 -- 1000Mb full up 0:25:90:b:34:0 --
e1000g0 1000Mb full up 0:25:90:b:34:0 attached
e1000g1 1000Mb full up 0:25:90:b:34:1 attached
so, it looks like the ports are attached, up, NOT in sync, not
defaulted and not expired. Apparently I need to be able to get them in
sync, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Yep, that's what I was trying to say. The host can ping itself and as
of now I can ping the aggregated address from the host itself and from
another host on the network.
I basically left it alone overnight and when I went back to it this
morning I could ping external hosts from this machine and ssh into it
on that aggregated address whereas last night I could not which is why
I emailed the list! :)
Maybe it just takes a little while to work after it's setup?

I'll have a look at your LACP article and see what I can do. Thanks
for your input!
Thanks and best regards,
