HI Guys,
I'm trying to setupa nic bonding on OPenfiler SAN. the issue i got is : what openfiler nic bonding mode will work with standard etherchannel on cisco 2960 switch?
the ether channel i got on cisco is as followes

int ether-channel 1
switchport mode trunk
switchport no negotiate
spanning-tree portfast trunk

int range gig 0/1 - 2
switchport mode trunk
switchport no negotiate

Please help me what configuration on the Penfiler will work ? if not do i have to chnage anything on cisco switch?

Setting "channel-group 1 mode on" disables any kind of negotiation of the trunk, which is good if the other device doesn't support PAgP or LACP protocols.  In the case of Openfiler though, LACP (802.3ad) is fully supported so I would configure the Cisco to negotiate with the Openfiler for best results.  Configure the LACP bonding on the Openfiler and try "channel-group 1 mode active" to see if it negotiates properly.

Hey Red.

I'm going to suggest you close this question and ask the volume question separately.  All of the tagging on this question is related to the networking side of things, which is appropriate for the LACP problem, but is somewhat left-field for the volume-related problem.  If you propose that problem as a separate question with appropriate tagging, you're more likely to get people who are more familiar with the storage side of things.

I'm glad the channel bonding is working for you.
