I am about to configure 4 Gig ports for EtherChannel. I've been reading about EtherChannel and it seems easy enough to configure. I have a host (server)which I am going to connect to these 4 - gig ports. This is new for me and would like some feedback for those that have used EtherChannel on their layer 2 switches. Any comments would be very helpful. BTW. The gig ports will be an access port with VLAN XX.
Etherchannel is a great technology and yes you are right - it is simple enough to configure without any bigger problems. As you may know you can connect up to 8 ports into one etherchannel link, the ports just need to be the same speed, duplex mode and they need to match the same allowed vlans(if you are configuring trunk, which I suppose is not your case) or be assigned to the same VLAN (your case). The ports in the etherchannel don't need to be contiguous which is a good thing. I hope you will manage to configure it successfully just in a matter of few minutes. Good luck! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
You're welcome, they even don't need to be on the same module. One more thing : make sure that all ports are up, otherwise it will be considered as a route failure and this port won't be used in etherchannel link.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
