Switch Trunk Group Configuration
To display the following form, go to the Trunk Groups Configuration form. Select a Trunk Group number.
This form enables you to configure a selected switch trunk group.
Trunk groups can provide super-bandwidth connections between switches or other trunk capable devices.
A trunk is a group of ports that act together, combining their bandwidth to create a single, larger port. Up
to 12 trunk groups can be configured on the switch with the following restrictions:
Any physical switch port can belong to no more than one trunk group.
Up to six ports can belong to the same trunk group.
All ports in a trunk must have the same configuration for speed, flow control, and autonegotiation.
Trunking from other devices must comply with Cisco® EtherChannel® technology.
The following table describes the Switch Trunk Group Configuration controls:
