lacp alternative for port channel on 12000 series router?

Hello,

I found the following on the link bundling page for the 12000 series router:

"In both EtherChannel and POS channel link bundles, the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) for signalling and the 802.3ad protocol for automatic negotiation of the channel are not supported. This means that in order for the channel between two routers to be active, you must disable signaling on switches (such as the Cisco 6500/7600 Series) in the channel, and configure the switches in ON mode."

So, my question is, if lacp isn't supported, is there another way to mimic its functionality on a 12000 series router?  I want to connect 2 routers together with a port channel that will pass through our layer 2 network, and I want to make sure that any failures in the path will shut down the affected link on both routers.

Thanks,

B

Anyone able to lend a hand with this?  Or am I SOL?

Moved this to the WAN forum in a last ditch effort.
