Let's say I have two switches on two different floors of a building that have a trunked fiber connection. The one switch I have the console cable connected to a serial KVM where I can get in out of band and console to the switch, but because the fiber connection got severed I can't telnet to the other switch but I have to get into it. can I connect the Aux port from one switch to the console port of the other so I can telent in that way? or is there another way?
unfortunately lan switches (modern ones at least) usually miss an aux port but the answer is yes a connection aux to console can be configured and the one with the aux acts as a terminal server providing access to the other device's console.
I did this successfully with routers.
have you alredy tried a shut/no shut cycle on the switch you can reach of the fiber link port ?
I want to set this up to avoid this problem. We had something simular happen so I wanted to see if this was possible. Can you send me how I have to have this configured? or direct me to some documentation.
