Cisco 3500 etherchannel port groups
Posted on 2011-02-12
I have 3 Cisco 3500xl switches that I want to daisy chain together. Switch A will connect to B, and B will connect to C.
When configuring the port group, should I create 2 separate port groups? For example if I have 'SwitchA' F0/1, F0/2, & 'SwitchB' F0/1 & F0/2 in 'port group 1', and SwitchB F0/3, F0/4 & SwitchC F0/3, & F0/4 in port group 2, is this the correct way to configure it?
Should all ports be in one port group amongst all switches, or is the 'Port Group' number only locally significant? I'm guessing on switch 2, there has to be 2 separate port groups, a different one going to each switch or you will get a switching loop.
