I will rate your post, it could helpful for people needing 802.3ad settings.
After searching for a while on Cisco website, my understanding is that 802.3ad is supported only on some combinations of platform & IOS.
For Cisco 3845 router, no matter what IOS is used, it seems 802.3ad is NOT supported at all. So this explains why I had no command available to set LACP. Bad luck, as I tried to use it in a multi-vendor environment connecting it some other equipments, which support 802.3ad in addition their own proprietary link aggregation protocol (different from Cisco's EtherChannel of course).
For Cisco 7200, apparently for some IOS this LACP 802.3ad is available.
I'm on the process to receive one of those IOS supporting 802.3ad, then I will load it on my 7200 and try to see if these commands are available.
Just a guess, but what I suspect sometimes happens is Cisco is sometimes a bit late to the party when a standard method provides a solution that they already solved with a proprietary solution; another example has been VRRP.
Still pending the conclusion about 7200, we're going to ask Ask Cisco if the 7200 or the 7206 is really supporting LACP (802.3ad).
In the meantime one more "surprise": 802.3ad is not supported by Cisco 7201!
We tried to configure LACP on 7201 but again the luck was not on our side.
âCisco is indicating that LACP is supported on Cisco-7201 according to the CCO documentation, but internally a âTMEâ indicates that this is not supported on the Cisco-7201. It is also not possible to configure this on the current Cisco-7201 routers."
