Behaviour of "stand-alone" port member on etherchannel

Hi All,

 

I want to ask regarding behaviour of "stand-alone" port member on etherchannel.

If we have following etherchannel issue which are the etherchannels down but each port operate individually.

 

blah_switch#show etherchannel summary
Flags: D - down P - bundled in port-channel
I - stand-alone s - suspended
H - Hot-standby (LACP only)
R - Layer3 S - Layer2
U - in use N - not in use, no aggregation
f - failed to allocate aggregator

M - not in use, no aggregation due to minimum links not met
m - not in use, port not aggregated due to minimum links not met
u - unsuitable for bundling
d - default port

w - waiting to be aggregated
Number of channel-groups in use: 23
Number of aggregators: 23

Group Port-channel Protocol Ports
------+-------------+-----------+-----------------------------------------------
20 Po20(SD) LACP Gi3/9(I) Gi3/12(I)
21 Po21(SD) LACP Gi4/8(I) Gi4/12(I)
22 Po22(SD) LACP Gi3/18(I) Gi3/19(I)
23 Po23(SD) LACP Gi4/18(I) Gi4/19(I)

 

Does the traffic being forwarded normally like normal access/trunk port?

 

I found out the those etherchannel member had mac address on each interface being recorded by CAM table

blah_switch#show mac address-table | inc 3/9|3/12

* 611 d039.ea19.cc68 dynamic Yes 30 Gi3/9

* 611 90e2.bac7.9a4d dynamic Yes 30 Gi3/12

 

And spanning tree run just normally for those each oh those etherchannels member port. As following:

blah_switch#show spanning-tree vlan 611

VLAN0611
Spanning tree enabled protocol ieee

Hello,

 

--> If we have following etherchannel issue which are the etherchannels down but each port operate individually.

 

Not really sure what you are asking. Why is the port channel down ? Post the configs of both sides of the port channel.

 

Either way, if the ports are 'standalone', that is, not member of a portchannel, they will be treated as redundant trunk/access port, and spanning-tree will block one of them...
