Refer to the exhibit. A network administrator has connected two switches together using EtherChannel technology. If STP is running, what will be the end result?
- The switches will load balance and utilize both EtherChannels to forward packets.
- Both port channels will shutdown.
- The resulting loop will create a broadcast storm.
- STP will block one of the redundant links.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Cisco switches support two protocols for negotiating a channel between two switches: LACP and PAgP. PAgP is Cisco-proprietary. In the topology shown, the switches are connected to each other using redundant links. By default, STP is enabled on switch devices. STP will block redundant links to prevent loops.
