How to Configure a Static Port-Channel on a DNOS 6 Switch

This article explains how to configure a static, non-lacp, port-channel on a DNOS 6 switch.

To configure a static port-channel on a DNOS 6 switch, do the following:

Warning: It is best practice to configure the static port-channel before plugging in the cables. Not doing so could cause unexpected issues or behavior in the network.
Note: The following example adds tengigabit interfaces 1/0/1 and 1/0/2 to port-channel 1.

  1. Configure the respective gigabit, tengigabit or fortygigabit interfaces to the appropriate port-channel number, 1-128, using the interface command.

N-Series(config)#interface tengigabitethernet 1/0/1

N-Series(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode on

N-Series(config)#interface tengigabitethernet 1/0/2

N-Series(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode on

Note: To configure a range of interfaces, please review article HOW10313: How to perform interface range commands on DNOS 6.

  1. Configure the switchport mode and vlan membership of the respective port channel number. The below example shows how to enter the port-channel interface configuration.
N-Series(config-if)#interface port-channel 1
Note: If adding an interface(s) to an existing port-channel, please feel free to contact ProSupport for assistance, if needed.

  1. Verify the respective port-channel is active.
N-Series#show interface port-channel 1

  1. Copy the configuration changes to the startup configuration
N-Series#copy running-config startup-config
This operation may take few minutes.
Management interfaces will not be available during this time.
