Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Hey There...

I'm in the process of removing all of my old Foundry equipment and replacing it with Cisco. I just tried to connect my Foundry Server Iron to my Cisco 6509E via MM Fiber (I do have an sx fiber card). On the Foundry side it shows up but on the cisco side it shows "notconnected". Does anyone know why cisco side won't come up. I've made sure they were in the sam vlan (although for just a link light I don't think that matters). I've also change the port (cisco side) to a route port but I still don't get a link light.

Thanks

Mike C.

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Hi Mike,

Can you paste which sx card are you having? What is the model of line card on which you are connecting your Foundr switch?

Can you check with "sh mod" on cat6k if all the line cards are showing you as OK status?

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Hey Ankur,

Here is the info from the Foundry side:

Hardware is GigabitEthernet, address is 00e0.5204.c2a8 (bia 00e0.5204.c2a8)

Configured speed 1Gbit, actual 1Gbit, configured duplex fdx, actual fdx

Member of L2 VLAN ID 1, port is untagged, port state is FORWARDING

STP configured to OFF, priority is normal, flow control enabled

mirror disabled, monitor disabled

Not member of any active trunks

Not member of any configured trunks

No port name

Here is the Cisco Info:

Mod Ports Card Type Model Serial No.

--- ----- -------------------------------------- ------------------ -----------

1 24 CEF720 24 port 1000mb SFP WS-X6724-SFP SAL10382B0L

1 0018.ba04.bb70 to 0018.ba04.bb87 2.5 12.2(14r)S5 12.2(18)SXF7 Ok

The GB is the "SX" model. I'm not sure what it is on the Foundry side.

Thanks

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Hi

on the interface could you try "speed nonegotiate" ?

Thanks

New Member

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Did try that and it doesn't seem to make a diffence. I checked on the Foundry side to see if I could modify the speed or duplex. But you cannot.

Thanks

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Thought you would have .... could you paste your output of sh interface?

Thanks

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Sorry i meant interface configs as in "sh run int g1/8".

Thanks

New Member

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Oh, sorry here you go:

interface GigabitEthernet1/8

no ip address

speed nonegotiate

New Member

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Hi

the only differnce i can see on both side is the fndry. has its port settings fixed (i.e. flow control, duplex hence autoneg is off) i can on suggest to match those interface settings on the cisco end. the key things here are flow-control and duplex. so we could set flw-ctrl on the cisco to on.

int g1/8

flowcontrol receive on

flowcontrol send on

Fingers crossed!!!

Thanks

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

No deal, but thanks for the help...

Does anyone else have any ideas?

New Member

Re: Fiber connection from a Cat 6509 to a Foundry Server Iron

Hi folks,

This is a really old thread, but with no solution....

I am having the same problem between a Extreme Foundry and a ME-6524, but with LX interfaces..

My troubleshooting has been similar to the one referred to here, but no luck!

Anyone got a solution?
