ASA etherchannels with RJ45/SFP interfaces

Hello.

I have an ASA 5550 running asa913-k8.bin. I'm trying to configure 2 of the ASA interfaces in an etherchannel to connect to a VSS switch.

This works fine when I'm using the first 4 RJ45 interfaces on the ASA (Gi0/0 to Gi0/3). When I try and add any of the RJ45/SFP interfaces (Gi1/0 to Gi1/3)to an etherchannel, the "channel-group" command is unavailable.

Is it possible to add one of the SFP module interfaces on a 5550 into an etherchannel - i;ve tried specifying the correct media-type but the channel-group command still isn't available.

Thanks

Andy

 

 

EDIT: found the following post:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/11269626/cisco-asa-5550-4ge-etherchannel

this states that the interfaces on the 4GE SSM ASA module (interfaces Gi1/0 to Gi1/3) doesn't support etherchannel

Hi,

You would not be able to use any interface on Slot 1 for etherchannel as documented in the configuration guide:-

Note You cannot use interfaces on the 4GE SSM, including the integrated 4GE SSM in slot 1 on the ASA 5550, as part of an EtherChannel.
