Cisco 2960 (WS-C2960-8TC-L) with SFP (GLC-FE-100FX) duplex issues

Hi There,


We have 2 Cisco 2960's (WS-C2960-8TC-L) trunked together via interface Gi0/1 on each switch using SFP's (GLC-FE-100FX). Switch Version 12.2(50)SE3


Although the link is up and operational it is only running at half-duplex (a-half a-100) and we are unable to force speed or duplex changes on interface Gi0/1.


Gi0/1 .1Q TRK to SW2  connected 1 a-half  a-100  100BaseFX-FE SFP


Should this configuration set-up run at a-full a-100 or do we need a different IOS image.



Thanks in advance


Jim.

Under the gigabit interfaces add this -


int gi0/1

media-type sfp


then you should be able to configure duplex/speed settings.

Jon,


That has worked now allows me to alter the duplex setting (speed cannot be altered due to to fixed rate of SFP).


Thanks for your help


Jim.
