Cisco 2960S(LanLite) Port Aggregation to 2 (Cisco SMB 300 Series Switches)

I am currently trying to setup my new cisco switches.

What I am trying to do:

I have 2 SMB 300's which are "access" switches.  Essentially the drops come down into these switches.  I also have a backbone switch which sets in my server racks.  In order to ensure maximum capacity between the backbone switch and the access switches I wanted to use Port Aggregation.  8 ports from each access switch make each trunk going to the backbone switch.  I can link the two access switches together and everything works fine, however, when I hookup the backbone switch I see a large amount of packet loss, dropped connections etc.

About me:

Just really brief to give you an idea of what you are dealing with, I am very new to cisco.  I am not a complete dolt but some of the innerworkings of the Cisco IOS through me for a loop.  Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Included:

A copy of the 2960 config, and a copy of one of the 300 configs.

I feel like I might have something set wrong on one side or the other with what type of etherchannel it is looking for and the mode that it is set in.  Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated, also if you could give a little direction on the appropriate commands to make any necessary changes I wouldn't dislike you by any means.

Cheers!

  You have the channel settings incorrect .  On one switch you have them set as desirable and on the other it is forced "on" .  This won't work . Both sides have to match.  Not knowing what the "300" is capable of you should just force both sides as on .  The 2960 should not be desirable if the other switch does not have the capability of negotiating the etherchannel. Make the 2960 channel-group X mode on also .   That is also the issue with forcing channels on if both sides are not exactly the same  and in your config they are not you can blackhole the traffic and cause all sorts of issues.
