Hi Cisco Team,
we are using type I (TokenRing) cabling in our
campus. Hermaphrodical connector to integrated RJ45.We migrated to ethernet/fastethernet cisco components a few years ago. Sometimes we have the problem of short circuits on the Hermaphrodical connectors, and this brings major problems to the attached switches. Sometimes it happens on switchports who are not connected to end devices but they are attached to the patch pannel with the Hermaphrodical connector. when a short circuit happens on the switch the error count of the port for the in/out frames are raising very fast and after a short period the whole switch goes down.
Is there a way to prevent those problems or are there ways to enable trap messages for this case ?
Maby a kind of a counter who will block the port when the allowed error count exceeds the limitations ?
We use in our campus cisco 3***,4***,5***,65**,85**
switches and we use CW2000.
Any suggestions are welcome :-)
Thanks for your help
