I am new to setting up etherchannels and have a couple of questions.
I will be setting up on a Cisco 4506 to a Cisco 3750. I want to set up the etherchannel using ports 3/4 and 3/10 on the 4506 and use ports 1/0/1 and 1/0/10 on the 3750. It will only be using on vlan 1. I understand the commands that I need to use to set up but guess I do not understand the steps.
Do I need to administatively shut down the ports before I configure the switches. I will be using the channel-group 1 mode desirable command to set up layer two etherchannels. Do I need to configue on both switches with the ports administratively down and the use the no shutdown on these ports after the switch is configured ?
