Usage Information

Port Channel interfaces are logical interfaces and can be either in Layer 2 mode (by using the switchport command) or Layer 3 mode (by configuring an IP address). You can add a Port Channel in Layer 2 mode to a VLAN.

The shutdown, description, and name commands are the only commands that you can configure on an interface while it is a member of a Port Channel. To add a physical interface to a Port Channel, the interface can only have the shutdown, description, and name commands configured. The Port Channel’s configuration is applied to the interfaces within the Port Channel.

A Port Channel can contain any physical interface. Based on the first interface configured in the Port Channel and enabled, Dell EMC Networking OS determines the common speed. For more information, refer to channel-member.

If the line card is in a Jumbo mode chassis, you can also configure the mtu and ip mtu commands. The Link MTU and IP MTU values configured on the channel members must be greater than the Link MTU and IP MTU values configured on the Port Channel interface.

NOTE: In a Jumbo-enabled system, all members of a Port Channel must be configured with the same link MTU values and the same IP MTU values.
Example
DellEMC(conf)# int port-channel 2
DellEMC(conf-if-po-2)#
