Ether Channel Lab Tips

  • If configuring mode as on then you must configure the other end on within60 seconds! otherwise Spanning Tree will consider this as a loop. Better, shut down the interface and then configure and unshut once both sides are done.
  • show etherchannel load-balance will show the current load balancing algorithm.
  • From global command, port-channel load-balance will allow you to change the algorithm.
  • port-channel and etherchannel commands and sub-commands for link aggregation.
  • All interfaces in the port-channel will inherit the configuration. so just configure logical to save time as physical interfaces will inherit config i.e. configure port-channel 12 instead of fa0/16 etc
