So, instead of having layer 2 etherchannel where the ports included are layer 2 switchports, the Layer 3 Etherchannel is when you actually put a layer 3 address on the port channel interface so it gives it layer 3 functionality.

Usage Guidelines

For Layer 2 EtherChannels, you must configure the channel-group interface configuration command, which automatically creates the port-channel logical interface. You cannot put Layer 2 interfaces into a manually created port-channel interface.

You create Layer 3 port channels by using the interface port-channel command. You must manually configure the port-channel logical interface before putting the interface into the channel group.

Only one port channel in a channel group is allowed.
