    You can use link aggregation like LACP to bond the two links together as one. Edit port numbers as needed

    For the 2540 you can do this as follows:

    trunk 47,48 trk1 lacp

    Tag/untag your vlans to the trk1 interface now

    "show trunk" to verify

    For the 8320:

    interface lag 1
       lacp mode active
       vlan trunk native <native VLAN>
       vlan trunk allowed <VLANs/All>
    interface 1/1/47
       lag 1
    interface 1/1/48
       lag 1

    "show lag" to verify

    You will want to use LACP to do that.

    ***8320 config****

    interface lag 1
    description <description here>
    no shutdown
    no routing
    vlan trunk native <native vlan>
    vlan trunk allowed <allowed vlans>
    lacp mode active

    interface 1/1/1
    no shutdown
    lag 1

    interface 1/1/2
    no shutdown
    lag 1

    trunk 1,2, trk1 lacp
    vlan x tagged trk1

    So in essence, on the 8320, configure your lag interface with LACP and appropriate VLAN tagging, and assign your sub-interfaces to that lag. On the 2540, create a trunk config, mark it as a lacp trunk, then add the necessary vlans

    If you share the exact interfaces you want to use, and which VLANs (tagged,untagged) it should be pretty easy to create a configuration you can reference
