I have a catalyst 4507r. I wish to place an uplink port on one of my active supervisor ports. I installed the copper gbic but when i plug a cable into it, the port stays in disconnected state. I tested the cable and another port..so I know it was not the cable. is there something i need to do before this will work or should i be looking at failed hardware?
OK, you said: active supervisor ports. Are you perhaps using supervisor redundancy?
The two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces available in RPR mode are the first Gigabit Ethernet ports on each supervisor. That is, only Gig 1/1 and Gig 2/1 are available. The other two ports, Gig 1/2 and Gig 2/2, are not available.
Ha..me too running out of ideas! I thought maybe I was just missing something silly.
I tried to place the gbic into the standby module and it does not come on either! I also grabbed a brand new gbic from the package and tried that one with no joy. I just cannot understand it. This system was inherited, so I am honestly not sure if they have ever worked. The interface is indeed set up as a switchport.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
