vsl and portchannel

Hello,

One Question...

Do i really need to use a port channel for my vsl link ?

can i just take one  TenGig interface on each supervisor

and put the virtual switch link ... command on each interface

... without creating the Port-Channel ?

thanks

You can use a single link but VSS is designed to be a highly available system so using a single link is introducing a single point of failure into the system.

It's always a better recommendation to have vsl link with port channel configuration, check out the below link for more information
