Cisco Channel group

Hi Experts,

My core switch is a C3650X and I have connected 2 Stacks of 2960X.
I have 2 uplinks to each stack.

Is it possible to create a port channel with the uplinks ?

int range t1/0/1 , t2/0/1
 (all the commands you want for the interfaces
 trunk or access, VLAN's, etc.)
 channel-group 1 mode active

Yes.

And best practice is to terminate individual links to different switches in a stack.

ok  thanks.

in my stack I have two uplinks.
One uplink per switch device, is it right ?

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

Yes.  Or two, or four. How many depends on how many ports the switch has and how much bandwidth you need.

The reason behind connecting to multiple switches in the stack is for redundancy in case a switch fails.

ok thanks,

when I configure the uplinks to a port channel...
...do I loose connection ?

Is it better to do the change not at working hours ?

Thanks to all of you.
