Hi Manik,


Please be advised that HWIC-ESW card doesnt support port aggregation (ether channel). You may need Etherswitch Network module for port aggregation.

Hi Manik,


base on the router output above. You are using 4 port Synchronous Serial Network Module on slot1.


You CANNOT configure "etherchanel" on this Serial network module.


As per Naikumar advised. you need an Etherswitch Network module for port aggregation.
