Hi Ali

Do you mean can you put all 4 links into one Etherchannel bundle ?

As far as i can see yes you should be able to. An etherchannel will form if all the ports have the same speed capabilities so if they are all gigabit capable i would think it would work.

You might not want to do this though as etherchannel load-balances across its links. 3 of your links are gigabit but the other one is 300Mbps.

How are you restricting the traffic on the 4th link to be 300Mbps ?

Hi Ali

Yes the etherchannel should form as all the switch sees are 4 gigabit connections. As long as you have checked the guidelines and restrictions and all the ports have the same capabilities i see no reason why it won't work.
