Create Port-Channel across two Cisco 4507R switches


One of our sites has two Cisco 4507R switches which are connected via a port-channel of 2x 10Gb links.

I have a new server going in this week and I want to create a 4Gb team on this server.........can I create a port-channel for this 4Gb team on the core and stick 2x links on core 1 and the other 2x on core 2.

I'm more familiar with the Cisco 3750X range and stacking!

How can I tell if VSS is setup?

I have a feeling they are not because if I do a show vlan it only shows the ports on that individual switch
The "show switch virtual" command will tell you.

Information on setting up VSS can be found here:
Tried executing that command but didn't recognise it
Doesnt look like its setup VSS.

I put the links on different blades in the end.
I've requested that this question be closed as follows:

Accepted answer: 0 points for ictian's comment #a41406420

for the following reason:

switch was not setup as VSS
That's really your only option in this case. If the commands weren't there, VSS likely isn't supported by your supervisors or software image. Sorry I didn't have better news.
Information was provided in the first comment indicating that multi-chassis channel aggregation can be done in a VSS configuration, but not where the switches are operating independently. The answer to the question may not have been the one hoped for, but it is still a valid answer to the question.
