My 2924M went out in one of my dorms. Cisco has a new deal in which I can opt to get a 2950 for free instead of a 2924. Since the 2924 is EOL I took the 2950. The 2924M was connected to my 6009 via mulit-mode fiber (62.5) with one hop in between. The db level of the fiber is 4 DB. The total distance is about 1,650 feet. I have configured a port on the 6009 for a 1000Base port for this dorm. When I make the swap, the 2950 will not come up. I know it is configured correctly because I checked it against one of my working 2950s. If I swapped it back to a 10/100base port with a 2924M in the IDF it comes up and works with no problem. Is the distance too long or is the fiber too hot? I feel my next step is to have the connectors polished and re-terminated to bring the db level down. Any suggestions, would certainly help. Thanks, Laurie
I have this problem too.
