we use this config on our PC62xx for portchannels:
!interface ethernet 1/g43!channel-group 1 mode auto!description 'Server eth0'!exit!!interface ethernet 1/g44!channel-group 1 mode auto!description 'Server eth1'!exit!!interface port-channel 1!description 'Server'!exit
If this portchannel is connected to another switch, spanning-tree portfast is not configured, of course.
But what do you use when the portchannel is connected to a server where both network cards are configured as a network bond
To portfast or not to portfast is the question?
ah, forgot this question. Where would I config the
in the ethernet interface or the port-channel interface?
When those ports connect to a non switch device, in this case a server, you want portfast to be enabled.
You would navigate to that specific interface/port, and run this command to enable portfast.
console(config-if)# spanning-tree portfast
The only way this may change, is if the server was a virtual environment which housed a virtual switch, then settings may change some.
