Aruba VSF change status standby to member

Hi,
i've got two 2930F in a vsf shown as below:

 VSF member's interconnection with links:

 Stby     Cmdr
 +---+    +---+
 | 2 |1==1| 1 |
 +---+    +---+

Is it possible to Change Stby to a full VSF member? I want to use LACP trunks with both switches as failover function.

Hello

You can use LACP with the standby and the commander. Your stack is correct.

Standby just means that it will become the new commander when the current commander fails.

Re: Aruba VSF change status standby to member

In VSF terms, Standby is just a VSF Member possible role status (Commander, Standby, Member) and, especially in a two VSF Member scenario, a well formed VSF has a Standby member and a Commnader member.

VSF Standby member is - basically - already a (full) VSF Member.

As written by @HP-Browniee you can (or, better, you should...for resiliency) setup a LACP uplink against both VSF Members since you're doing that against a single logical Switch that is the entire VSF from a Switch/Server without any particular issue (in other terms: one leg of LACP Aggregated Trunk goes to VSF Member 1, the other leg goes to VSF Member 2).
