L3 Etherchannel

In a etherchannel all configurations which are done on interface port-channel XX will be passed down to my physically port members automatically is this correct.

Correct. For all commands that are not specific to port channel or physical interfaces.  For example, "speed" is not one of those commands that get inherited.

But defining access vs. trunk, or which VLANs are allowed on at trunk, those do get inherited by the physical interface.

ok but what I don't understand is I added the command vrf member TEST to my ether channel but when I do show run inter the command is not on my physical interferences which is part of the port channel.



inter face port-channel 10
no switchport
vrf member TEST
ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0

interface eth1/10
no switchport
channel-group 10 mode active

interface eth1/11
no switchport
channel-group 10 mode active

I can add the command vrf member TEST to the physically interface (etj1/10 -11)without getting any error but my question is why is the command not passed down automatically from etherchannel 10

I've setup L3 port channels on 7Ks that were not part of the default VRF.  I just don't recall if the command shows on the physical interface.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to that switch right now so I can't check it.

Is it not working or is it working and you're just curious why it's not showing on the physical interfaces?

I cant harm when adding the command also to physical interface is this correct.

Can't answer that one.  To be honest, it doesn't surprise me. Nexus switches have quite a few idiosyncrasies like that.

I would not make that assumption. :-0
If you're going to do that, make sure you do it during a maintenance window.
