trying to reverse engineer the fcoe network of a company we purchased.   On the vethernet interfaces that the vfc interfaces are bound to, i see  'bind interface Ethernet1/2 channel 7' specifying the physical interfaces.   what does the command channel7 refer to?    it's not a port-channel as there is not port-channel 7.    

From googling is see - channel Specifies that the virtual Ethernet interface be bound to a specified
EtherChannel interface.    But i can't find any port-channels 7.

not sure what you mean?  this is the guide i'm looking at- http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5500/sw/command/reference/layer2/n5500-l2-cr/n5500-l2_cmds_b.pdf


seems to reference - switch(config-if)# bind interface ethernet 1/1 channel 101 where above is says the channel command referencing ether-channel 101.    I don't see any etherchannels using 7 in the config.

figured it out.  

Channel Number - a unique channel ID of the vNIC on the adapter. This is referenced in the bind command under the virtual Ethernet interface on the Nexus 5000. The scope of the channel number is limited to the VNTag physical link. The channel can be thought of as a 'virtual link' on the physical link between the switch and server adapter.


this gives a pretty good explanation.  http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/switches/nexus-5000-series-switches/117691-config-5500switch-00.html
