This is a sample steps of migrating IP configuration from physical interface to bundle interface. Take note that this may result service impact during the migration as the existing interface need to be shutdown and re-configure. Remember to shift your traffic prior with the maintenance.

Link Aggregation Control Protocol or  IEEE 802.3ad (LACP) is an open standard of Ethernet link aggregation protocol. It is a method used by routers/switches to automatically establish link aggregation groups or LAG ( sometimes called as channel groups, bundle or port-channels). Here’s LACP configuration examples for different Cisco platforms using LACP active mode, where it places a port into an active negotiating state and sending LACPDU (Data units) at regular intervals to seek out partners IOS (Catalyst 4500) Configuration: interface…
