Changing Ciscoview port colors for ports in error disable

Unanswered Question
Jun 5th, 2008

The default color for ports that are not connected is red. I would like to change the color for red to be error disable and ports not connected to be some other color. What do I have to configure to change the colors?

The colors cannot be changed. They are hard-coded within CiscoView.

3750 and 2960 switches

I am trying to configure a way to trap and capture error disabled ports.

Monitoring errdisable ports for these devices is not possible in CiscoView. However, depending on your IOS version, you may have built-in errdisable trap support. All you would need to do is enabling the sending of errdisable traps. For example:


snmp-server enable traps errdisable


The traps sent will be cErrDisableInterfaceEvent traps from the CISCO-ERR-DISABLE-MIB.


See http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk389/tk621/technologies_tech_note09186a00806cd87b.shtml for more on the errdisable detection and recovery feature.
