ISE SNS-3595-K9 Etherchannel

Is it possible to connect the SNS-3595-K9 with etherchannel to my 6509 chassi, and if so how do I do that ?

I do not think you can do

I do not think you can do port-channel on the 6500 with 2 interfaces of ISE. But, as of ISE 2.1, you can bond 2 interfaces together into a Bonded interface to allow for link redundancy. More information here:

Rahul is 100% correct here.

Rahul is 100% correct here. Port-channeling (PAgP, LACP, etc) is not supported in ISE. Interface bonding is the only option at the moment. 

Thank you for rating helpful posts!

Re: I do not think you can do

Hi Rahul,
On the Cisco switch side which connected to Cisco ISE, what is port configuration that I need to configure?
Is it port-channel with mode 'on'?

Thank you

Re: I do not think you can do

Hi Rahul,

 

When I use the bonding feature, what would be the configuration at the switch side where the ISE interfaces will be configured. I think it should be configured as access ports. Please advise.

Re: I do not think you can do

The current ISE feature is NIC Bonding for High Availability and networking:bonding [Linux Foundation Wiki] says,

... The active-backup, balance-tlb and balance-alb modes do not require any specific configuration of the switch. ...

Thanks. It looks like the SNS

Thanks. It looks like the SNS-3595-K9 is built on the UCS platform, so for the Cisco engineres to get the etherchannel working should not be a problem....
