Hi,


I don't think it is possible without packet loss, the single link which is having the datat traffic will get distrubed once it is configured for bundle in switches.so i would recommend to plan with 15 min downtime to make the active port in etherchannel bundle and make to active in channel.


Check out the below link for etherchannel configuration on switches
