switch(config)#int fa0/17

switch(config-if)#switchport mode access

switch(config-if)#switchport access vlan 1

switch(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode active

switch(config)#int fa0/19

switch(config-if)#switchport mode access

switch(config-if)#switchport access vlan 1

switch(config-if)#channel-group 2 mode active

switch(config)#port-channel load-balance src-ma




Im trying to configure my ports in catalyst switch 2950. Port 17-18 belong to group 1 and ports 19-20 belongs to group 2.


My concern is, if my configuration is enough in configuring my lacp.

Looks good to me , You have to make sure the far end looks exactly the same except the load balance doesn't have to be the same if you don't want it to . The channel groups don't have to match either though I think it is better if you do just from a troubleshotting perspective , also put in your description field on each port where the other end is going for ease of troubleshooting.

Hi,


Please don't forget to shutdown the interfaces before configuring the etherchannel (or they'll enter err-disable - when it is configured only on one side (misconfig) it will be err-disabled to prevent any spanning tree loops) - shutdown only one side until doing the configuration on both sides does the trick.


BR,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
