Re: error-disable on the switch port

The system has many reasons to errdisable a port ;) Read command ref. about "errdisable detect cause" command.

Re: error-disable on the switch port

Hi,

This is a general error condition when a port has been disabled by the Catalyst Switch.

Maybe this is a STP or ARP Security issue.

You could use something like this to enable the reporting of more specific cause that disable the port

(config)#errdisable detect cause

Regards,

Gabriele
