I wondering if it's possible to combinate a sfp port and a copper port into a port channel, if both run on same speed of course.

hardware is a

Cisco Catalyst 2960-48TC-S (lan lite image) and Cisco Catalyst 2960g-24TC-L (lan base)


My experience with Cisco wants me to say that speed/duplex are all that should matter. However, I've yet to come across this type of setup so I cannot say with 100% certainty that IOS will allow it.


This should not be a problem. I did this with several other vendors (Foundry, HP, Extreme, ...) and Cisco should not be a problem, too.

Don't rely 100% on the syntax, tho.

conf t
int g0/0
desc Copper Port
speed 1000
duplex full
channel-proto lacp
channel-group 1 mode active
int g0/1
desc SFP
channel-proto lacp
channel-group 1 mode active
