Hello,

I'm interested to buy SPA-8X1FE-TX-V2 module in a 7604 with supervisor 32 but i'd like to know if it's possible to use etherchannel on those ports.

Anyone has tried that before? I didn't find any docs about that.


thanks,

Milko

Hello Milko,

SPA modules are for WAN usage like running MPLS or other router features

And you need a SIP linecard in the chassis to use it.

Using them for building a port-channel can be a waste of resources: if you have already a SIP linecard with an empty SPA slot then it can be considered.


Use the following link to config guide of SIP/SPA

the answer looks like to be negative:

EtherChannel is only supported on the 10-Port Gigabit Ethernet SPA and the 1-Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet SPA on the Cisco 7600 SIP-600. EtherChannel is not supported on the 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet SPA on the Cisco 7600 SIP-400 or on a Fast Ethernet SPA on the Cisco 7600 SIP-200.

If you have a SIP200 it is not possible to config etherchannel


Hope to help
