How to Bundle Muliple Dark Fiber point to point links

Hi There

 

We have 2 data centers and are currently in the process of designing OTV between them leveraging 2 x 1GB point to point Dark Fibre links.

 

In DC1 the 2 connections will terminate in a Nexus VDC (VPC enabled)Cluster

In DC2 the 2 connections will termination in a 6500 HSRP cluster (1 is a 6509 and 1 is a 6513)

Will it be possible for me to use an etherchannel type setup here to get the most out of both of the connections?

 

Thanks

Nope.  Not possible.  

 

Etherchannel must originate-from and go-to a SINGLE logical switch.

Thanks for your reply.

Can you throw some ideas at me in which I could make this work?

what if I was to terminate the connections on a 3560 in front of the 6500 switches in DC2?

In DC1 they would be terminated in a VPC domain so on that side it should be OK?
