    I am trying to get trunking to work with my EMC Celerra, EMC has the
    Celerra set up for etherchannel trunking, i have both ports connected
    to the same switch in neighboring ports (13,14) going to the switch UI
    I can go to "Ports, Etherchannel" and it sees that ports 13,14 are
    trying to etherchannel but it says (Down)(Layer2)

    And I do not know what the problem is ?

  2. Todd,

    Does the EMC Calerra really support etherchannel? I thought they might
    support 802.1ad rather than the cisco etherchannel.

    Out the 100Base-T, off the firewall, through the router, down
    the T1, over the leased line, off the bridge, nothing but Net.

    Couple of things to try:

    1) Cisco switches can be finicky about what ports can be used for
    channelling (it groups of 2 or 4). So try 1&2 instead.

    2) Force the channeling to be on. Don't try to negotiate with PAgP.
