interface status "inactive"

I have a 4506 with a SupV E. It has 2 10 GE ports, 4 1 G ports.

I'm trying to use the first Gig ports (Gi1/3) to trunk. But the two switches don't see each other.

On the 4506, "sh interface status" gives the port's status as "inactive". That's new to me, and in searching about, all I could find is that when you have redundant Sups, only 1st port on each sup is active - the others are inactive.

But this is not a redundant setup. What do I do to make the desired port active so I can use it to trunk?

Can we see the portion of the config along with the show int status output ?
