Hi

Currently we only have spare ports on module 12 & 13 of our Catalyst 6513 (running
CatOS).  On BOTH of these two modules, there are a couple of ports that are aggregated
to our old HP Blade (BL45p, BL25p which I was told has an old Cisco switch built-in) and
 there are also a couple of ports on both modules that are aggregated to our new HP Blade
 (BL680p which I was told has a HP switch built-in) :  all using PAgP protocol (as I was
 told by our network administrator).

These few days, we took delivery of several HP Itanium servers that come with built-in
VC (Virtual Connect) that could only support the industry standard LACP which needs
link aggregation to our Cisco 6513.

Is it possible to use a few ports from the existing module to aggregate them to connect
to the new Itanium blade servers?  Thus on the same module in the 6513, we will have
a mix of LACP and PAgP aggregated ports?  

Kindly give me the commands step by step plus some useful link if possible

Btw, if I need to buy another Gigabit RJ45 module (last resort), what's the price like?

I'm trying to figure out the information in the following link but was confused :

In essence, what I need is to configure LACP  for some ports and PAgP for other
ports where all the ports are on the same module card/slot

To make an LACP channel

set channelprotocol lacp <module>
set port lacp <module>/<port-range> mode active

To make a PAgP channel

set channelprotocol pagp <module>
set port channel <module/port-range mode desirable

So does this mean I can have both LACP plus PAgP on a single module?

So would the following work (the commands are applied
on the same module 12)  :

set channelprotocol lacp 12
set port lacp 12/3-5 mode active


set channelprotocol pagp 12
set port channel 12/6-8 mode desirable

No.

One or the other on a single module.
