Hi Friend,

You can simply shut and unshut the port and it will come up. But it is better to find out what is the reason for the interface going into errdisable state.

Can you check the logs and see if it tells you the reason? If logs does not show you you can configure errdisable detect command to detect the reason.

Also this is the link to configure erridsbale recovery
