Hi all,

We have two CIsco WS-C2960S-48FPD-L switches. We have stacked them using the Flex Stack technology. We would like to configure layer 2 etherchannels. We need to create 8 etherchannels. As we have read, 2960S switches support up to 6 etherchannel.

When we configure the stack, can we configure up to 12 layer 2 etherchannels? Or, can we only configure 6 etherchannel? In this second case, if we want to configure 8 etherchannel we should not create the stack. Which is the bandwitch when we use a flex stack cable?Are we losing a lot of bandwith if we do not create the stack?

What solution would you suggest? Join them using a 10Gb module?
