I have a 3560 switch and connections are fine, but the mgmt interface, VLAN1, is down since we did a passwd recovery. Is this somehow caused by the autostate feature? I don't have any other VLANs and besides one trunk I am using as simple a setup as I can..
I have had ports going into disabled state and I may have had flapping between the trunk ports (misconfigured?) that is disabling them... not sure yet. We've just been re-enabling them in the GUI and looking into the "errdisable recovery" auto-recovery timer for disabled ports.
Any help is much appreciated.
A port which is "Administratively down" means that the "shutdown" command has been issued on that port.
You should simply be able to re-enable it by logging on to the switch and doing the following
switch#copy run start
This should bring the interface up and save that state for the next switch restart.
