EtherChannel across multiple switches

I just have a general question in relation to whether it's possible to do EtherChannel across two separate switches? If so, can someone point me to the doco that outlined the process to do this. Thanks.

Re: EtherChannel across multiple switches

Hello,

AFAIK, and unless something has changed very recently, the only way to link two (or more) switches together in a single Etherchannel is in a stack configuration.

Nortel appears to have a feature called Split MultiLink Trunking, which does multichassis trunking, you might want to have a look at the document below:
