I have Palo Alto 3020/5020 firewalls and I would like to configure a port channel (ether channel) between these devices and a Cisco switch.
I have configured an aggregate link on the Palo and added the interfaces. I have created the Port Channel on my Cisco but I am not seeing the AE interface coming up.
Has anyone got a guide on how this can be done or if it can be.
Many thanks in advance

PAN does not LACP aggregation with Cisco Switches. A static/manual port configuration is required for PAN - Cisco link aggregation.
Here is the document which might help you:
Cisco Link Aggregation Traffic Through a PAN Device

Palo Alto Networks firewalls currently support 802.3ad for link aggregation.
For load balancing:
LACP (Link Aggregation Control Protocol, 802.1ax) is not supported.
The above information can also be found at the following link
If LACP is something that would be helpful in your environment. I would suggest request a feature with local Sales Engineer.
Hope this helps.

Can you please tell, which documents helped you managing this task? Or even better, could you post your palo-config?
Thank you for your reply.
