Is it possible yet to etherchannel (using LACP) from a server using Broadcom NICs (with the latest drivers and software) to two Cisco switches?


I heard that etherchannel has evolved but not sure to what extent. Thanks.

Hello,


I assume you are referring to multichassis LACP Etherchannels, that is, each NIC going into a different switch, and both links forming a channel ?

That is correct. Is it possible yet? Thanks.

Hello,


TMBK, the only way to configure an Etherchannel (wether PAgP or LACP doesn´t matter) is across a stack, because apparently that is the only way the channel group interface knows that it belongs to ports on different physical switches...

I will ask around if that has changed and let you know.
