I have INE AAP and INE Workbook to backup the learnings. What ever are possible on Simulator i shall document the same.

2. Creating Port-Channel with n5k

port_channel_image

* -> in order to add a new-interface to a port-channel, existing port-channel
had to be removed from vlan , then add the port to the port-channel and then
reconfigure the port-channel interface back-to vlan participation.

-> The above point needs to be tested, mostly has to do with order of operations. Generally speaking, the port-channel will always be trunking as we will heading for VPC.

* This cannot be done on Nxos Simulator.

You got to enable “feature lacp” for basic port-channel to work.
interface port-channel12
switchport access vlan 10

interface Ethernet1/9
switchport access vlan 10
channel-group 12 mode active

interface Ethernet1/10
switchport access vlan 10
channel-group 12 mode active
