Cisco Etherchannel Overview and how it can be configured in Cisco Catalyst Switches – Series 2

Yasir Irfan Yasir Irfan Profile: Yasir Irfan

Dear Friends, in my previous post I just introduced Etherchannel, now let’s proceed one step ahead,  there are certain limits with the Etherchannel  lets figure out what are those  limits,



·         An Etherchannel  Group Number must be in the range of 1 to 256.

·         All ports in the target Etherchannel  group MUST be in the same VLAN.

·         If one physical link in the Etherchannel  group is a TRUNK, then all other ports must be configured as trunks carrying the same VLAN information.

·         Any defined broadcast limits must be the same across all ports in an Etherchannel.

·         An LACP Etherchannel  group cannot support any physical links in half duplex mode.

·         No port in the Etherchannel  group can be defined as a SPAN port.
