Ether-Channel Number

Unanswered Question
Dec 2nd, 2009


I am configuring port-channel between two switches. Is it necessary to use SAME Ether-channel NUMBER on both switches?



I have this problem too.

Hello Rupesh,

it is not needed but it can be handy to help reading configurations

Hope to help

I agree it does not need to match  but from a troubleshooting point of view it is a lot easier to know that say port channel 15 lines up with port channel 15 on the other end .  We have gotten in situations where they did not line up in say bladeserver installs and its a real  pain  determining what goes where at times and you end using cdp and other things to figure that out and it takes time.
