HI Carl,

I understand that you want to hardcode the etherchannel connecting to server.

Thats verymuch possible by using "ON" mode.

Kindly check the following CCO link as an example

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk389/tk213/technologies_configuration_example09186a008089a821.shtml#nego

There is a table for "EtherChannel Modes in Switches:"

EtherChannel Modes in Switches:

Mode Negotiation Protocol Explanation
onNoneEnables EtherChannel unconditionally. Recommended if the Workstation/Server does not support any negotiation protocols.
offNoneDisabled EtherChannel unconditionally.
activeLACPInitiates negotiation by sending LACP packets. Recommended if the Workstation/Server support LACP.
passiveLACPIf remote end sends LACP packets, negotiation will start.
desirablePAgPInitiates negotiation by sending PAgP packets. Recommended if the Workstation/Server support PAgP.
autoPAgPIf remote end sends PAgP packets, negotiation will start.

Hope this helps

Regards

biswa.
