Does a Port-channel have mac address?

Hello, I am using Packet tracer and I have a doubt, I know that a port-channel sets its mac address using the mac address of the first interface, my question is the next, How I can see the port-channel's mac-address? Is it the 1st mac address of the Table (show mac address-table from Switch0)? and if it is, Where does it come from?

 

Regards

Re: Does a Port-channel have mac address?

Hello,

 

the command 'show interfaces x' should tell you which MAC address the port channel interface is using (which indeed is the one of the first port channel member interface):

 

S1#sh int gigabitEthernet 0/0
GigabitEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
Hardware is iGbE, address is 52de.5467.9c00 (bia 52de.5467.9c00)

 

S1#sh int port-channel 1
Port-channel1 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
Hardware is EtherChannel, address is 52de.5467.9c00 (bia 52de.5467.9c00)
