Port-Channel

Hi I am trying to setup a L2 port-channel between two 6509-E's and when I get to the second switch I keep getting this error:
Command rejected: VLAN port provisioning is enabled. Please input vlan name.

It won't let me add any Vlans to the trunk.   This is in my lab so I'm trying to fiddle with it but I've been at it for a while and figured it's time to bounce some ideas off EE as well as reading up on Cisco's site.  

Appreciate any feedback!

Sounds like you have vlan locking enabled.  See description here:- http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SX/configuration/guide/vlans.html#wp1060897

I haven't used the feature before, so I'd probably cheat and disable vlan locking (temporarily).  Otherwise you'll need to get used to it - apparently it forces you to configure vlan (trunk) access by name.

Perfect that did the trick.  I do not need VLAN locking for this lab setup.  Thank you!  Also a good lesson learned that I figured I'd mention. Sometimes due to work pressure you get rushed and miss some obvious things.  I noticed someone else that was using the lab was using the same physical ports as part of another configuration so it certainly wasn't helping matters.  Cheers!
