cat 6500 problem on 10b port

Unanswered Question

I have upgraded catalyst 6500 IOS to new version (s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-33.SXH.bin) and than, all the module SFM-capable 48-port 10/100 Mbps RJ45 have some strange problem.


The ports on the module will have many input errors, and CRC; the server behind the ports also will lose real connection to the network. However, if you do “show int status” on the cat6500, it still connected, and if you log into the server (which linked to the port) on console, it still recons the connection available.


I have also found I can easily fix the problem by shut/noshut on the port. But, the problem will occur later. And also, there is always some CPU intensive sometime before with no reason.


Could anyone give me some tip what problem it is? And what I can do with the problem?


Any comments will be appreciated


Thanks in advance

Hi.


It sounds like you have a duplex mismatch problem as a result of autonegotiation.


Do one of two things:


1. Hardcode both the server NIC and the switch port for speed and duplex (example: 100/full or 1000/full).


2. Set both the server NIC and the switchport to "auto". Sometimes, though, the server NIC's autonegotiation protocol may have added proprietary features that the Cisco switch does not support -- and that may cause both sides to lose sync when the periodic renegotiation takes place. The industry has had a problem standardizing the Autonegotiation protocol.

Oh yeah, never set one side of the connection to "auto" while hardcoding the other side. It only works if you are dealing with a Gigabitethernet, otherwise you will have a duplex mismatch.

I have no good luck.


the server is as5200, configure as:

interface Ethernet0

ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0

no ip redirects

no ip directed-broadcast

no ip route-cache

no ip mroute-cache



the port on cat6500:

interface FastEthernet9/4

description as5200

switchport

switchport access vlan 196

switchport mode access

wrr-queue bandwidth 20 100 200

wrr-queue random-detect max-threshold 3 90

wrr-queue cos-map 1 1 0

wrr-queue cos-map 2 1 1 2

wrr-queue cos-map 3 1 3 4 6 7

mls qos vlan-based

spanning-tree portfast


before the cat6500 is hardcoded, and I have changed to auto 4 hours before, now, the problem came back.


Any advice?

can you post the speed and duplex seetings for the server and switch?

There is no actually configuration for speed and duplex for the ports. By default, it is auto. so, the setting on both are auto, am I right? Also, there is no speed/duplex related configure in globel.

Just add something.


And also, it seems cat6500 lost MAC address of the server first.
