If I update a port-channel in cisco IOS, does it update the configuration of the port-channel's "member" interfaces?

Hello Cisco Experts,

I have what I'm sure is a simple question.  I have a port-channel (Po64) setup between two switches that is configured as a trunk.  The port-channel consist of two ports (gi1/47 and gi1/48), which are also configured as trunks.  Right now, vlans 2, 7 and 8 are allowed to go across the trunk.  I want to add vlan 9 to be able to use the trunk.  My question is do I have to add vlan 9 to each individual port?  The commands I think I would use to do this are:

Switch1# config t
Switch1(config)# interface gi1/47
Switch1(config-if)# switchport trunk allowed vlan add 9
Switch1(config-if)#exit
Switch1(config)# interface gi1/48
Switch1(config-if)# switchport trunk allowed vlan add 9
Switch1(config-if)#exit

I'm 95% sure that I can add vlan 9 to the trunk at the port-channel level and it will update the gi1/47 and gi1/48.  The commands I think I would use to do this are:

Switch1# config t
Switch1(config)# interface Po64
Switch1(config-if)# switchport trunk allowed vlan add 9
Switch1(config-if)#exit

I would test this myself, but I don't have a lab here in the office.  I also do not have Packet Tracer, so I don't have a virtual lab.

Any help (as always) is greatly appreciated.

Nick

Just add the vlan on PO interface and it should update the members.

You are right you just need to add the vlan under PO configuration.
