We are trying to test err disable recovery on Cisco 2960 switches. Here is what we have connected:
Cisco 2960-24TC-S --> Cisco 2960-24LT-L --> Asante 8 port (dumb hub) --> pc
We have done to following to make the port on the Cisco 2960-LT-L fail (err-disable mode):
Using crossover cables loop ports 1/2 and 3/4
From PC (port 5) ping broadcast address - 172.16.1.255
The dumb hub is connectd to the Cisco 2960-24LT-L (port 2). It does not fail. Shouldn't it fail with all of the loops from the dumb hub?
