I am one of the IT guys for my unit and have never once worked with fiber optical connections. We had a long stretch that needed to be ran with fiber in order to get them connected so we did but have had no success. We are using (2) Cisco Catalyst 2924 XL Series switches along with working media converters and patch fibers at each end.
I don't know much about configuring switches and spent a good amount of time reading the Guide for that series with no luck on figuring it out. I have confirmed in dir flash that it is a blank config. Is there something in particular I need to setup before the switches can pass traffic?

Step 2 Enable the command switch and name the cluster (up to 31 characters).
Step 3 Return to privileged EXEC mode.
Step 4 Display a list of candidates.
show cluster candidates
Step 5 Display a list of current cluster members.
show cluster members
Step 6 Enter global configuration mode.
Step 7 Add candidates to the cluster.
Assign a unique number from 1 to 15 for n. Do not use any switch number (SN) that appears in the show cluster members display. Enter the candidate switch MAC address, which can be obtained from the show cluster candidates display.
cluster member n mac-address hw-addr password password
For fiber, make sure you have the correct cable for the distances involved and the type of fiber ports that are used. The two options are singlemode fiber (SMF) or multimode fiber (MMF). Make sure the ports on the devices that are connected together are both SMF, or both are MMF ports.
For fiber connections, make sure the transmit lead of one port is connected to the receive lead of the other port. Connections for transmit-to-transmit and receive-to-receive do not work.
Command is same to enable the fiber interface in cisco switch as if like ethernet port.
