EtherChannel aggregates the bandwidth of up to eight compatibly-configured ports into a single logical link. All Ethernet ports on all modules, including those on a standby supervisor engine, support EtherChannel with no requirement that ports be contiguous or on the same module. All ports in each EtherChannel must be the same speed. Fast EtherChannel and Gigabit EtherChannel port bundles allow you to group multiple Fast or Gigabit Ethernet ports into a single logical transmission path between the switch and a router, host, or another switch.
Port Aggregation Control Protocol (PAgP) and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) are two protocols that allow ports with similar characteristics to form a channel through dynamic negotiation with adjoining switches. PAgP is a Cisco-proprietary protocol that can be run only on Cisco switches and those switches released by licensed vendors. LACP, which is defined in IEEE 802.3ad, allows Cisco switches to manage Ethernet channeling with devices that conform to the 802.3ad specification.
Note: Make sure to read the workstation or server Network Interface Card (NIC) documentation for any guidelines that apply to interoperation with Cisco switches.
Perform these general configuration tasks on the Cisco Catalyst switch Ethernet ports:
Issue the set vlan command to assign a VLAN to the Ethernet ports.
Issue the set trunkmod/port off command to disable trunking on the Ethernet ports (highly recommended).
Issue the set spantree portfastmod/portenable command to enable spanning tree portfast on the Ethernet ports (highly recommended).
Issue the set port channel command to set EtherChannel modes on the Ethernet ports.
Issue the set port channel all distribution command to configure an EtherChannel load-balance distribution algorithm.
Hello Team,we have Cisco 9200-48 P series and we are having trouble with avaya IP phones. These IP phones are unable to get the IP address from DHCP server, but the same avaya phone is working fine on Cisco 2960 series switches.Please suggest. Also please...
We've got C6807-XL with only two module slots occupied. Planning to expand network by populating two more slots. Can someone please confirm if this switch model is currently supported by Cisco and is not at the end of product life cycle, in which case we ...
Hello Everyone, I have installed Embedded Wireless on catalyst 9300 switch, now I am trying to register the Access point (Model numbers : 3702 and 1852i) but I am unable to do the same as it is registering for a minute and trying to download the EWLC...
Hi, We've just recieved a batch of 9200L and i'm going through the configuration. The configuration is setup and working well, I was just wondering if someone could assist with the user accounts part of the product. One our old swiches, we used to ru...
Hi Experts, i have switch with Model number is N9K-C9372TX-E & NXOS: version 7.0(3)I5(2). May i know the Command to implement the ethernet port speed limit to 25 Mbps on ingress to port or Egress out in the switch? thanks.
