If you're using LACP:

conf t
int range g0/1-2
 channel-group 1 mode active

If you're not using LACP:

conf t
int range g0/1-2
 channel-group 1 mode on

Hi donjohnston,

I'm not using LACP and the "channel-group 1 mode on" does not work with the Broadcom Smart Load Balancing and Failover Teaming.

I read from Broadcom site that we don't need to configure teaming on the cisco switch port to make this work.

So I end up not configuring the etherchannel.
