Is your management vlan up up? Does your management vlan have an IP address?

Do you have cdp running? try a "show cdp nei", that will show you if you have layer 2 connectivity to any other connected Cisco device.

Yes the management vlan is up. It does have an IP address. I don't have cdp running.

I just swapped the other 2950 back in and it came up right away. If I wasn't using the correct fibre media, I won't get a link light right? The 2950 have fixed 100 Base FX ports and the sfp module we purchased is a GLC-GE-100FX, I am wondering if these 2 interface are compatible.

Are you by chance running any vlans on the old switch(s)? Maybe your fiber ports weren't members of the correct management vlan.
