I have many users connected to my Cisco switches, that refuse to hard set their workstation to the proper settings. If I set the switch port to 10/half, they will leave their workstation to auto and wil not allow anyone to change these setting. I am forced to leave the switch port to auto as well, as leaving one end on auto just causes too many issues.
Is there a way to display the errors caused by this mismatch? (without adding a sniffer to the mix)
Is there a way to determine how many times the Cisco switch had to re-negotiate the settings when left to auto?
Exactly what events require the auto-negotiation feature to re-negotiate?
How many times a day could this auto-negoitation feature have to re-negoitiate?
Thanks to ANYONE who can provide assistance.
