Cisco Switch Configuration:

Both these Cisco switches are stacked and it supports multi-chassis port-channel, i.e. creating port-channel between Ethernet interfaces of different switches.

Set all these interface to default settings, this is to avoid mismatch on interface configuration causing failure of ether-channel formation.
