Can anyone give me some guidance on configuring this uplink from 2 x 6120's to our core 2 x 6504 VSS cat switches? I have 1 16 port 10GE blade in each 6500 chassis and plan to uplink 2 links from each 6120 Fabric to each chassis for a total of 8 uplinks to the 6500 4 in each chassis.
Can I create and etherchannel trunk uplink? How to do this?
Not familiar with 6120s, but if you can stack them together, you should be able to uplink 4 to each switch and create one Etherchannel. If 6520s can be stacked, you can also use the same Etherchannel for you dual-active detection mechanism for VSS, if not you have to use fast hello. Also remember that the 16 port 10Gig module is 4 to 1 oversubscribed.
