Configure Etherchannel on LACP configured module on 6500

Unanswered Question
Mar 17th, 2010

I setup a blade on my 6513 to use lacp for my SAN using the channelprotocol command. I now

need to setup an Etherchannel on the same blade between 4 ports but I get the error that it is configured as LACP. Is there any way to set specific

ports back to pagp so I can setup an etherchannel on these ports or do they need to go on a separate blade. I need etherchannel v.s. LACP because VMware ESX doesn't support LACP.



I have this problem too.

Hi Greg,

If the 6500 is running native mode, you can configure lacp or pagp per port base.

If you are running CATOS, then it is not native mode. In catos, you cannot have different protocols running on same module.
