lacp questions

    Hello I have few questions about setting up LACP, nad more specifically, setting it up across multiples switches.

    Unless I have mistaken, recent reading made me think having a redundant lacp aggregate over multiples switches is now possible.

    Tipically i'd like to have one LACP bonding interface connected to 2 switches (2ethernet on each switch for instance).

    - Does a special feature is needed at the switch level?
    - Does the switches needs to be interconnected to each other?

    Reading many docs (including bonding.txt) I find the word "aggregator". What does it refer to?

    There are specific vendor features for implementing MECs (Multi Chassis Etherchannels).
    Cisco has vPC on Nexus and VSS on cat6k, there sure are others.
