EtherChannel Question

I have not seen this before and was wondering what it means. When I run the command

show etherchannel 52 sum

I see a Po52 and a Po52B

What does the B means?

This is happening on another one as well except it says A and not B

6509-VSS#show etherchannel 52 sum

        I - stand-alone s - suspended

        R - Layer3      S - Layer2
        U - in use      N - not in use, no aggregation
        f - failed to allocate aggregator

        M - not in use, no aggregation due to minimum links not met
        m - not in use, port not aggregated due to minimum links not met
        u - unsuitable for bundling
        d - default port

        w - waiting to be aggregated

Re: EtherChannel Question

In the output of the show etherchannel summary command, the following conventions apply:

In the column that displays the protocol that is used for the channel, if the channel mode is ON, a hyphen (-) is displayed.

For LACP, multiple aggregators are supported. For example, if two different bundles are created, Po1 indicates the primary aggregator, and Po1A and Po1B indicates the secondary aggregators.

Re: EtherChannel Question

The name is:

Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Component Command Reference

See if you can find it under that, for me it's under partner docs.

Thanks,

Re: EtherChannel Question

That helped alot thanks....

Now another question.....how can I not have them have multiple aggregators? I have the same exact setup on another server and I do not have multiple aggregators. What could cause multiple aggregators .
