Does ASR1002 support L3 Etherchannel ?


I am wondering if the new Cisco ASR1002 can support very basic L3 Etherchannel since I am not able to ping the remote host whereas the interface is up ??

interface Port-channel10

ip address

negotiation auto


interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0

no ip address

negotiation auto

channel-group 10


interface GigabitEthernet0/0/1

no ip address

negotiation auto

channel-group 10


Port-channel10 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is GEChannel, address is 0024.14f3.fcc0 (bia 0024.14f3.fcc0)

Re: Does ASR1002 support L3 Etherchannel ?

Hello Nicolas,

try to use vlan based subinterfaces (enc dot1q xx) like port-channel10.20

see this chapter from configuration guide

ASR 1000 should be able to map different vlans to different member links with the primary secondary option.

Other collegues have seen this vlan based load sharing in action.

Hope to help
