devices running at different link speeds

Unanswered Question
Jan 19th, 2009

Hi all, we have some backup devices they apparently run at 4 gig link, speed, is this possible, I thought generally link speeds need to match, ive never heard of a switch that runs speeds like this, do they normally have to say run 1 gig, 10 gig etc ?

I have this problem too.

Your backup device likely has an etherchannel bundle configured and has 4 1Gb/s links equaling 4Gb/s.
