Teaming on Uplinks

Answered Question
Jan 7th, 2008

I have a 4510R that I want to Team 2 Ports to provide an uplink to a 2960G Switch, I've Configured as below:

4500

-----

int port-channel 54

sw mode trunk

2960G

------

int giga0/48

channel-group 54 mode on

sw mode trunk

no shut

However, I don't ever see the NICs using 2Gb of Bandwidth.

Any solutions to this issue ?

I have this problem too.

You need channels on both sides.

So, on the 4500 you need to add two interfaces to channel 54 (channel-group 54 mode on) and do the same thing on the 2960G.

Also, configure port-channel 54 on the 2960G with the trunk info, you will have to do same on individual interfaces on 4500.

First: Is the etherchannel formed? Output of "sh etherchannel summary"

Second: If its formed, then try "sh etherchannel load-balance".
