i want to know, if could be formed PortChannel between two Dell Switches PC8164 on SFP Ports.
Yes you can use SFP ports in a port channel. Navigate to the port interface and then place it in the port channel you want it to participate in.
# channel-group 1 mode on
# channel-group 1 mode auto
i'll test and i'll let you know!
on the ebook of dell, it says that works only on ethernet ports.
SFP ports are ethernet ports.
Also, if you want LACP, the command is:
channel-group 1 mode active
This changed on PowerConnect switches with the 5.x series firmware.

Yes, i did it on Tengigabit Ethernet ports, and it is working fine.
but i've to test on SPF Ports also.
My other question:
i want to create portchannel between PC8164 and PC5524.
PC8164 have 10Gbps ethernet ports
PC5524, have 1Gbps ports
Have i to manully configure some speed, duplex on switches?
let me know.
The 10GBASE-T ports on the 8164 are rated for (10Gb/1Gb/100Mb) and the 10Gb SFP+ ports on the 8164f are rated at (10Gb/1Gb). So Both should be able to work with a 1GB port on a 5524. I would leave auto negotiation on it should connect.
