7/28 duplex-mismatch Enable No Change

twr1-as14a1> (enable)

So errdsiable timeout means after 300secs the switch will try to renable the port or not?

this i want to know

thanks

"so myunderstanding is that right now it only shows us reason for error disable.

to recover from errdisable we have to enable the option

dulex mismatch enable"

"set errdisable-timeout duplex-mismatch" will only tell the switch to try to reenable the port after the errdisable-timeout. What it won't do is fix the problem. So you need to actually set the duplex so that there is no mismatch.

Then to reenable the port you could either wait until the timeout, providing you have entered the ""set errdisable-timeout duplex-mismatch" command or you can simply reenable the port from the CLI ie.

set port / enable

Re: errdisable time out

Yes it should but then unless you fix the underlying problem the switch will simply errdisable the port again -

Edit - Mahesh, apologies but no it won't try to reenable the port -

duplex-mismatch disable

the disable bit in the line above means that the timeout has not been applied so it will stay in errdisable mode. You need to enable the duplex-mismatch timeout for the switch to automatically try and reenable the port. You would still need to fix the underlying problem.

Apologies for the original misinformation.

Re: errdisable time out

Hi jon,

so myunderstanding is that right now it only shows us reason for error disable.

to recover from errdisable we have to enable the option

dulex mismatch --enable

also if in future it went to errordisabled due to bpdu-guard it will show then as errdisable reason bpdu-guard .right?

and if i want that port should be enabled automaticall from errdisabled we should use this command

set errdisable-timeout enable ?

bpdu-guard BPDU Port-guard

channel-misconfig Channel misconfiguration

duplex-mismatch Duplex Mismatch

udld UDLD

other Reasons other than the above

all Apply errDisable timeout to all reasons

m,any thanks
