A strange DTP infomation

Unanswered Question

Hello,

I have 2 switchs: Cat2950 and Cat3550 connected via Fa0/10

On my cat2950, i configure port fa0/10 to mode dynamic auto and the other end

with dynamic desirable. The trunking works fine but when i look at dtp

information, i see something strange:


DTP information for FastEthernet0/10:

TOS/TAS/TNS: TRUNK/DESIRABLE/TRUNK <---trunking is on

TOT/TAT/TNT: 802.1Q/802.1Q/802.1Q <---encap dot1q

But int the statistics:

2204 native, 2204 software encap isl, 0 isl hardware native <-----what does this mean: 2204 packets encap isl ? ---->



we all know that cat2950 does not support isl, so what does this infomation mean ?


Thanks

Yes,u r right.right from 2950 series switches, they don't support ISL, support only 802.1q.But,check out the version of the ios in your switches.

Do u get any of the error messages like the one below from 3550.if so, a remedy is also provided here.

Error Message DTP-5-ILGLCFG: Illegal config (on, isl--on, dot1q) on [chars].


Explanation This message means that one end of the trunk is configured as on, ISL, and the other end is configured as on, 802.1Q. [chars] is the interface.


Recommended Action This configuration is illegal and will not establish a trunk between two switches. You must change the encapsulation type so that both ends of the trunk match

Unfortunately, i didn't get any error message as you listed above.


The 2950 running 12.1(22)EA1 and 3550 running 12.2(25)SEA.


I was thinking that it's an ios bug maybe ???


Thanks
