LACP on FEX Ports

Does the 22xx Series FEX support static or dynamic LAGs between itself and a server?

Imagine a server with dual 10G NICs, and I need to connect them to the SAME 22xx  FEX....can I set up a LAG between the two 10G NIC ports and two 22xx  FEX Host ports? Does it depend on how the FEX is connected to the parent  55xx?

LACP will work if the server is connected to the same FEX... but you arent getting the advantage of dual homing and failover. If this FEX fails, then the server connectivity is lost.. If you have another 2232 top of the rack , connect the 2nd nic to that and you can do a VPC between the ports to have full redundancy.

Hope this helps.
