AP3825i LAG to D2, Netsight/NAC/OneView don't recognize LAG

My plan was to test the AP3825i LAG function (connected to my D2).
The LAG is up & running so that is working....

D2_desk(su)->show port status lag.0.1
Alias Oper Admin SpeedPort (truncated) Status Status (bps) Duplex Type
--------- ------------ ------- ------- --------- ------- ------------
lag.0.1 Up Up 2.0G full lag

D2_desk(su)->show mac port lag.0.1
MAC Address FID Port Type
----------------- ---- ------------- --------
D8-84-66-03-B3-38 100 lag.0.1 Learned
D8-84-66-03-B3-39 100 lag.0.1 Learned

The issue I observe is that Netsight/NAC/PM/OneView don't seem to recognize the LAG between the AP and D2.
The D2 has MAC auth (allow all) enabled.

- NAC, end-system view show 2 authentication events (ge.1.3&ge.1.5) instead of only one from lag.0.1

- PM, switch detail view only show the phy ports and no LAG so I'm not able to enable auth on the LAG

- OneView, in > wireless > AP view > click on the AP name which should bring up the AP portview
Instead of one view for the LAG two views are opened - one for ge.1.3 and one for ge.1.5.
From here it's get very weird as the first view show the correct AP but the view for port ge.1.5 show a complete different/wrong AP.

Any idea ?

AFAIK there is no possibility yo switch on the authentication for logical port. So you will see authentication for all lag member ports. But I'm not sure if it is a good idea to switch on authentication for that port at all. On D2 you have only 2 auth per port so you will not be able to see wireless. If you need to see AP in NAC it is a good idea to limit number of multi auth to one per port.
Logical ports are hidden in Policy Manager by default. You can show them via Policy Manager menu bar - Tools / Options / Ports, and deselect "Hide Logical Ports"
