MIB CISCO-STACK-MIB

Name portOperStatus.2.1


iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.cisco.workgroup.ciscoStackMIB.portGrp.portTable.portEntry.portOperStatus.2.1


OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.5.1.4.1.1.6.2.1

Type INTEGER

Units

Access read-only

Status unknown

Value minorFault(3)



The current operational status of the port.


Possible Values :

down(-1)

other(1)

ok(2)

minorFault(3)

majorFault(4)

fullDuplex-10Mb(5)

fullDuplex-100Mb(6)

autoNego-failed(7)

halfDuplex-1000Mb(8)

fullDuplex-1000Mb(9)


Obviously some of these possible values are self explanatory.


But, what is a minor fault vs. a major fault?


Does ok mean everything is fine?


What does "other" mean?


Thanks,

Bob

A state of minorFault is not good. Check portAdditionalOperStatus for more of a clue as to why that may be.


Other could mean anything, really. It usually points to a gap between device and MIB instrumentation.

On our 6513 Catalyst - IOS (tm) s72033_rp Software (s72033_rp-ADVIPSERVICESK9_WAN-M), Version 12.2(18)SXF7, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)


portAdditionalOperStatus shows as an "unsupported OID"

This object is typically a CatOS object. You can try running "show int status" on the switch to see if that command gives you more specific details as to the real state of the port.
