I have two Switches 4506s that I want to expand the existing EtherChannel.
Both switches are currently connected via two Giga interfaces via fiber (media type 1000BaseSX).
The Port Channel is up and working at 2Gbps
My question arises, because I want to add six more ports to the bundle, but the six ports are Giga but copper (media type 10/100/1000-TX)
I want to know if the EtherChannel is going to work fine with 2 Fiber ports and 6 Copper ports (all at the same speed & duplex, configured as trunks with all the same configuration), the only difference is the physical media type. Is that going to cause a problem?
I need an answer, because I'm in a production environment and I don't want to test it if it's not going to work like that. Is the physical media to match a requirement? I don't think so, but I need to be sure.
