Trunk between 6500 and 3750.

Unanswered Question

I'm using a stack of two 3750 (one 3750G-12 and one 3750-48). This stack is connected to a 6500 via a 1000SX link (SFP). This link is a .1Q trunk. If I use a port on the first switch (3750G) I have many input error,

0 runts, 391 giants, 0 throttles

17767355 input errors, 20941 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored

but if I move to a port on the other 3750 no more errors appear!

Any ideas!?



I have this problem too.

Hi Andrea.

1) This problem ocurr with any port of the 3750G-12?

2) Can you copy the sh int gi1/0/1 please?

3) You use the same SPF adapter?


Hi Guido.

1) I don't know. I don't have a free port.

Today I'll try to switch with another port on 3750G-12.

2) Sorry, a clear counter command already applied.

C3750-12g-P1#sh int g1/0/1

3) Yes, I'm moving the SFP to a port on 3750-48 without any errors!

Many thank for your help.

Some IOS allow that "SFP" ports can be set to "full duplex", disabling the "auto-sense." If the other end is set to "auto", you have a duplex mismatch and a lot of errors. Connect the fiber and check if it is full-duplex on both sides or auto on both.

If not, try hardcoding media-type and duplex to auto on both ends or full on both.

</p><p>Switch(config)#int gi 1/0/1</p><p>Switch(config-if)#no media-type </p><p>Switch(config-if)#media-type sfp </p><p>Switch(config-if)#duplex auto</p><p>


Please rate all the helpful comments.

I have seen a lot of switchs with a failed port, running perfect, but maybe is a good idea move this sw to a lab or keep for backup.

(A client have a 2950 with 5 failed ports but the other 19 work normaly.)

Best regards!
