question about etherchannel

I am working with packet tracer to create a layer 3 etherchannel, but running into an issue.  these are the commands I was using

 

channel-group 1 mode on

 

int po1

no switchport

 

in videos, I see this work, but when I enter the no switchport command  it keeps coming up as incomplete command.

 

what am I doing wrong

Re: question about etherchannel

Hi @vincentgruber8 ,

 

i make some test and works for me(all in multilayer switch).

I do this:

 

Test 1

Switch(config)#int po 1

Switch(config-if)#no switchport

Switch(config-if)#ip add 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0

Switch(config-if)#ex

Switch(config)#int ra f0/1-2

Switch(config-if-range)#channel-group 1 mo on

 

By doing this, the system gave me this message:

Command rejected (Port-channel): Either port is L2 and port-channel is L3, or vice-versa

 

To fix it, run this:

Switch(config-if-range)#no switchport

Switch(config-if-range)#channel-group 1 mo on

 

Test2

Switch(config)#interface range fastEthernet 0/1-2

Switch(config-if-range)#no switchport

Switch(config-if-range)#channel-group 1 mode on

Switch(config-if-range)#ex

Switch(config)#interface port-channel 1

Switch(config-if)#ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0

 

Test3

Switch(config)#int ra f0/3-4

Switch(config-if-range)#channel-group 2 mo on

Switch(config-if-range)#ex

Switch(config)#interface port-channel 2

Switch(config-if)#no switchport

Switch(config-if)#ip add 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

 

Therefore, I recommend making sure you are working on a switch layer 3.
If you keep the problem, you can compress your exercise (winzip) and attach it to check.

 

Regards
