Setting up etherchannels

Hello,

I am new to setting up etherchannels and have a couple of questions.

I will be setting up on a Cisco 4506 to a Cisco 3750. I want to set up the etherchannel using ports 3/4 and 3/10 on the 4506 and use ports 1/0/1 and 1/0/10 on the 3750. It will only be using on vlan 1. I understand the commands that I need to use to set up but guess I do not understand the steps.

Do I need to administatively shut down the ports before I configure the switches. I will be using the channel-group 1 mode desirable command to set up layer two etherchannels. Do I need to configue on both switches with the ports administratively down and the use the no shutdown on these ports after the switch is configured ?

Re: Setting up etherchannels

Hi

First you configure the port channel 1

do admin shut the port channel 1

then you configure the ports and do admin shut the ports

then connect the cables to the ports and no shut the ports now the physical link will come up

finally do no shut for port channel 1

now check the port channel members using command show interface port-channel 1

regards

krishna
