Objectives

  • Confgiure EtherChannel
  • Verfiy EtherChannel
  • Verfiy STP 

I've re-cabled my switches with the new cables I've received as you can see above (Had to upload to imgur as the post would not save with it inserted). I am now going to set the interfaces to trunk ports, set up EtherChannel.

Configure EtherChannel


First I needed to remove the previous settings, i've also re-enabled CDP on the interfaces that I previosuly disabled it on.

EtherChannels 1, 2, and 3 go to GAIA and 4, 5, and 6 go to EREBOS. I was originaly going to create another three EtherChannels between GAIA and EREBOS, however, I found that the 2960's only support up to 6 channels, while the 3550 supports up to 64.
