Hi,

can I use etherchannel between two switches with mixed media types?

SW1: 1 Copper and 1 Fiber   ----- One channel group

SW2: 1 Copper and 1 Fiber    ----- One channel group

Yes you can. Etherchannel doesn't care about the physical media as long as the speed and duplex settings are the same.

I hope the only difference between the member ports is the media-type. If you are trying to use ports from different type of modules (which has different queue architecture) then we need to configure "no mls qos channel-consistency" under port-channel interface.

There will be a GLC-SX-MM and normal ethernet interface for copper.

Thats should be fine.

Actually, I was referring to the linecards in the switch.
