Setting up Channel on Cat 5505
Hi guys I need some advice as to what could be wrong.
I am trying to set up an 8 port channel on a 5505 and it doesn't seem to let me turn it on. First when I do the command to see all 8 ports it returns a message with "Illegal port_list range" and when I try with only 4 ports I get the message:

5505> (enable) set port channel 3/17-20 on
Mismatch in vlan number.
Mismatch in vlan number.

Question is can I use 8 ports or just 4? Seems like I can only use 4 ports for the channel and also why do you think I am getting a Mismatch error when the ports are in the same vlan and configured to speed auto.

Many thanks for your help.

4 ports is max unless using some Gigabit modules, then 8 can by max.

Also issue a 'show port' and 'show trunk' command with CatOS to view the vlans associated and the native vlan associated as well on both switches.

Here is all the info you need:

'Mismatch in vlan number' means just that, specifically:

Hope that helps

Many thanks for your reply, in the end I figured that I could only use 4 ports and that I had diferent vlans on the trunk ports even though they were disabled as a trunk.

All working fine now :)
