need some one help on port channel.

I was trying to trace a server port with a mac ex aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff

and from the switch i got the entry as

Switch (enable) sh cam aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff

* = Static Entry. + = Permanent Entry. # = System Entry. R = Router Entry.

X = Port Security Entry $ = Dot1x Security Entry

VLAN Dest MAC/Route Des [CoS] Destination Ports or VCs / [Protocol Type]

---- ------------------ ----- -------------------------------------------

529 aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff 6/10,7/20,8/3,9/22 [ALL]

Is the port channel configured between the switch and the server or there is a switch at the other end.If there is a switch at the other end u need to log in that switch and check for the mac-address.if not then u need to log into the server and check the mac-address assinged to each network interface.

U can use upto 8 ports on switch to form a channel.On the server side u need to use teaming.
