Nexus 6K: Port-Channel Load-Balance

Hi all,

I configured "port-channel load-balance ethernet source-dest-mac" on Nexus 6001. But when I use "show run all | in load-balance", it displays module 1 and module 2 are still using source-dest-ip for port-channel load-balance. And for command "show port-channel load-balance" and "show port-channel load-balance forwarding-path interface", it still shows switch using MAC for hash algorithm. The NXOS is 6.0(2)N1(2a).

Does anybody know:

-  What is the function of "port-channel load-balance ethernet source-dest-ip module" and in which situation this command will be effective?

-  It shows "port-channel load-balance ethernet source-dest-ip module" command for both module 1 and 2. Module 1 is N6K Supervisor and module 2 is 4xQSFP Ethernet Module. Is it possible to set different load-balance algorithm  to these 2 modules?   

# show run all | in load-balance
port-channel load-balance ethernet source-dest-mac
port-channel load-balance ethernet source-dest-ip module 1
port-channel load-balance ethernet source-dest-ip module 2


# show port-channel load-balance

Port Channel Load-Balancing Configuration:
System: source-dest-mac

Port Channel Load-Balancing Addresses Used Per-Protocol:
Non-IP: source-dest-mac
IP: source-dest-mac

# show port-channel load-balance forwarding-path interface port-channel 30 vlan 150 src-ip dst-ip
Missing params will be substituted by 0's.
Load-balance Algorithm on switch: source-dest-mac
crc_hash: 977 Polynomial: CRC10b        Outgoing port id  Ethernet1/2

Param(s) used to calculate load-balance:
        seed: 0x701
        dst-mac:  0000.0000.0000
        src-mac:  0000.0000.0000
