Thanks for the response.
This may have been a "duh" moment on our part. We disabled the primary-port to see whether the LAG would failover to the remaining port, but then realized disabling the primary-port would probably also disable the rest of the ports in the LAG.
However, how does one disable the primary-port in software if it needs to be removed from the LAG temporarily due to interface errors, for example, short of physically having to disconnect the cabling ?
Apologies for the ignorance, but we are basically a Cisco shop and used to the Cisco LAG method of having a separate virtual port-channel interface.

If you disable the primary port (for example 1/6) while in the interface level, it will tear down the whole LAG from the box. It will create an outage.
The best way to disable the primary port in the LAG is to go into the LAG config, and disable the primary port.
(config)# lag "LAG-Name"
(config-lag-LAG-Name)# disable E 1/6
