I wouldn't risk it without a maintenance window.

Could you configure 4 unused ports (2 per switch), then have someone on site patch them in, then once the Po comes up, shutdown the previously used link?

Hi Mahmoodmkl,

I have Core Switch that has 2 ports going to stack Switch.

Stack switch we know is single switch.

My main concern is that if i do remotely on Core switch  and make portchannel interface first and assign interfaces to it

will then i lose connection to stack switch?

I am ok with outage as i have change window now

thanks

Hi,

Only way to reach Stack switch is by core switch.

When you say at which end u r i did not get that?

So if i make 2  ports on stack as etherchannel then i can go to core and it should be ok right?

Thanks
