You want to ether channel two ports on Cisco

Here is what you do:

SW1#conf t
SW1(config)#interface range f0/1-2
SW1(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation 802.1q
SW1(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW1(config-if)#channel-group 10 mode active
SW1(config-if)#end

SW1#conf t
SW1(config)#interface range f0/1-2
SW1(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation 802.1q
SW1(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW2(config-if)#channel-group 10 mode pasive
SW2(config-if)#end

If you want to see the result, execute this command:

SW1# show etherchannel summary

You can run the command in both switches.
That is just for verification.

Thank,

I have more that 2 switches now. So more LACP trunks will need to be setup.

So if I run this on the 1st and 2nd Switches

SW1#conf t
SW1(config)#interface range f0/1-2
SW1(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation 802.1q
SW1(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW1(config-if)#channel-group 10 mode active
SW1(config-if)#end

SW2#conf t
SW2(config)#interface range f0/1-2
SW2(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation 802.1q
SW2(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW2(config-if)#channel-group 10 mode pasive
SW2(config-if)#end

And run this on the 2nd and 3rd switches

SW2#conf t
SW2(config)#interface range f0/3-4
SW2(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation 802.1q
SW2(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW2(config-if)#channel-group 11 mode active
SW2(config-if)#end

SW3#conf t
SW3(config)#interface range f0/3-4
SW3(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation 802.1q
SW3(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW3(config-if)#channel-group 11 mode pasive
SW3(config-if)#end

Would this work?
