I am facing a problem in Topology services which is as below:-
I have a managed 2950 switch connected to a 6509e. I can see all devices & links properly in topology services. For testing purposes i connected another 2950 (which is also managed) to existing 2950 via a cross over cable as trunk, configured for SNMP,cdp etc. Now this device can be seen throuh chassis view and topology services.If i power it off the icon becomes red & when powered on it becomes green within 1.5 minutes. But the problrm is that the link connecting the two 2950's stays solid red (even when powerd on). I manually ran a device discovery once again and still the problem persists. Both the devices can see each other via cdp, ping etc. when i did a path analysis layer 3 is successful but layer 2 is shown as failure.
How can this be? The devices are directly connected (nothing in between).I use LMS 2.6
Pls give some ways to overcome this.
Thanks and Regards
