I have a 6509 running dual SUP720 engines and need to hand my customer a
2 gig etherchannel connection. I am running IOS only (no Cat OS). However
after configuring the ports, I am seeing something strange in the sh

I show both gig ports in the members section, but I show only 1000Mb/s
as the total etherchannel size:

Does anyone know if this is a bug in the IOS (maybe it will only show a
total of 1000Mb/s) or is there another problem..?
