config etherchannel for point to point link

Hello Prashant,

I recommend to use LACP instead of unconditional bundling it provides the capability to detect the neighbor and that is the same system connected to the other link.

You have ISP connections in the middle and so it is important to bundle in a safe way.

So I would use

channel-group 1 mode active

in order to use LACP. LACP messages are sent over every member link.

Another point of attention is that you are configuring each multilayer switch with a static default route to the other device and this is not good practice.

If you know that one site is more important you can configure the static default route on the other router, but on the main site you should configure specific static routes describing the IP subnets that are reachable at the other site.

Hope to help

config etherchannel for point to point link

Thanks for valuable suggestion.I will use lacp .

If I create svi on switch 1 such as

int vlan 21

ip add    192.168.100.1

Now on switch 2 if i give

ip route 192.168.100.0 255.255.255.0 172.18.2.1(ie p01 ip address) Thus it work.

Is my above config right ?

Hello Prashant,

your configuration is right

yes this is what I was meaning on the main site you build specific static routes for the client IP subnets of the other site.

you can actually also use an aggregate covering multiple IP subnets with a single static route, but the idea is to avoid to have each site using a default route pointing to the other one.

Hope ot help

Thanks a lot

The think is I have implemented ether channel with in site using lan links.

But not between diffrent sites using wan links.
