connect 2 switch with fiber

Hi everybody,

I´m trying connect two catalyst 3560 Catalyst switch through fiber.  I have a network in the office, it is working. Now, I need to take a switch in my office network (switch A) and add a new switch (switch B) for connect a near office. I have the same converter modulo in   both extreme (finisar trj8519p1bnl-mc), I configured the switch B with Ethernet wire (from 10.0.0.1) and I put an IP within to office range IP (the same that others switch).

But when I connect the fiber in both switch port, the ports led are off. When I access to web interface from switch A, I can see the fiber port in yellow.

Somebody can help me?

Thanks!

Unsure if this is your issue, but many Cisco devices, by default, won't run non-Cisco optics.  If not already doing so, you might try adding "service unsupported-transceiver" to your configuration.
