Does anyone else want to punch HP's lights out every now and then?
Let's set a metaphorical scene.
You're looking for a new car, and a salesperson is walking you round. You take a seat in the passenger seat, and notice two buttons on the dashboard. Both are marked "Sports mode". Being inquisitive, you ask about them.
"Yes, one is for the Sports mode, and the other is for Sports mode. Sports mode enables you to go faster, on the other hand Sports mode is to park your car in the garage."
Suitably unimpressed, you lamp the idiot in the face and go and buy a TVR instead.
Back to the real world, remembering the above metaphor, why in the name of Beelzebub and his Justin Bieber lookalike minions can't HP decide on what to call what everyone else refers to as link aggregation?
"Just need to enable trunking. That's the ticket. No, hang on, that's not trunking. That's trunking!"
Reaches for the hobnobs and tea.

Had a play with it a fair while ago when recycling a load of old Compaq servers. Was sort of nifty at the time but no doubt the owners of those servers could afford them - most of them had 24gb of ram and 4tb of storage, back when we all went "ooooh" when we got 256mb and 40gb in our stations ]
