Link Aggregate from 2 different stacks

My network person has setup their side to have 2 of my nics going to one cisco stack and 1 nic going to a different stack.
From my perspective, in the hp port aggregate software I have 1 link setup:
HP_APA_START_LA_PPA=900
HP_APA_DEFAULT_PORT_MODE=FEC_AUTO
HP_APA_GROUP_CAPABILITY[0]=5

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[2]=lan6
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[2]=5
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[2]=FEC_AUTO

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[3]=lan3
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[3]=5
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[3]=FEC_AUTO

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan0
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[0]=5
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[0]=FEC_AUTO

but when I run nwmgr, I get the following results:

How do I get these 3 nics to be in the same group? We want them spread over the 2 stacks for redundancy.
