Is there typically something that has to be done to enable a trunk when being done across a metro ethernet link? I have two switches that I set up that trunk fine when connected with a crossover but will not trunk when connected over the metro-e. I can send traffic if i set the ports to a non-trunk access with a single vlan.

Hello Mike,

ask your Metro ethernet provider for an 802.1Q tunnel and/or check the type of service they are giving you.

Hope to help
