Symptoms

The NAS Appliance is configured with several Active-Standby IPMP groups.

I would expect that these IPMP groups would allow me to disconnect one of the interfaces involved without losing connectivity.

This is not what happens, if I disconnect one of the IPMP members, all members go in an error state and connectivity is lost.
