I do understand that the router itself would never be able to support 2 saturated gig ports, but the real reason for the port channel was for redundancy, so that the layer 2 path to the 7206 could be connected to 2 seperate switches.
I could not seem to think of a better way to get a redundant layer 2 path to a router that needs to use DOT1Q tagging on a trunk port, but if you have any other design ideas, I am open to suggestions.
Well, on the switch side, there is no "etherchannel" so it is not spanning across switches, but no matter which port the router decides to use on the etherchanel, the downstream switch (7609) has a layer 2 path to the end host.
Things have been working fine, I just was not sure how it would act once VoIP traffic is going across the port-channel on the router, but if it will always keep a single flow on a single interface, it should be fine.
Going further on your BVI scenario, how would you do VLAN tagging on the BVI interface if I had multiple VLAN's going to the 7206?
I would think that would accomplish the VLAN tagging.
I assume that the router can only do the standard IEEE PVST?
I have not had a chance to fully lab this, but you said that I would have a forwarding and blocking port, because of STP.
Would the blocking port be on the switch side? I am running MST on my 7609s and downstream switches, for faster convergence, sub-second, but would I loose that fast convergence time in this scenario? At least at the 7206.
I will do some lab testing to determine the convergence time.
I think this solution will work better for when using VoIP, since there would be no load balancing, just a primary and protect path, since I have no need for anywhere near a gig of throughput in most cases, 300Mbps max.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
