How to Bundle Muliple Dark Fiber point to point links

Hi There


We have 2 data centers and are currently in the process of designing OTV between them leveraging 2 x 1GB point to point Dark Fibre links.


In DC1 the 2 connections will terminate in a Nexus VDC (VPC enabled)Cluster

In DC2 the 2 connections will termination in a 6500 HSRP cluster (1 is a 6509 and 1 is a 6513)

Will it be possible for me to use an etherchannel type setup here to get the most out of both of the connections?

Nope.  Not possible.  

Nope.  Not possible.  


Etherchannel must originate-from and go-to a SINGLE logical switch.

Thanks for your reply.Can you

Thanks for your reply.

Can you throw some ideas at me in which I could make this work?

what if I was to terminate the connections on a 3560 in front of the 6500 switches in DC2?

In DC1 they would be terminated in a VPC domain so on that side it should be OK?
