Re: Teaming Need to configure on 4507-R for Blade Server
if you connect the two blade switches to a VSS you may be able to use a single channel group but only if the two blade switches form a sort of stack.
if this does not happen, it may be a good idea to connect each blade switch to each C6509 that is part of the VSS pair in order to be able to survive to one c6509 chassis failure.
You should investigate on how the two blade switches will be used: if one is used as primary and the other as standby and they are standalone you should use two channel groups each with its own number.
If the blade switches can be used at the same time thy should form a sort of stack and a single channel-group should be used. LACP allows to define some links as sort of backup and to use the first m links with other links as standby.
The problem with two channel-groups if both blade switches are used is that for the VSS some MAC addresses may be seen as flapping between the two etherchannels. For this reason it is important to understand how the blade switches will be used.
