Help on enabling GB ports on 8540 CSM

I have just been given a used 8540 for our organization. We are trying to bring up the gi ports but when I connect a patch cable to another switch the port says it is "administratively down, protocol down" how do I get the ports to come up?

Re: Help on enabling GB ports on 8540 CSM

Issue the following commands

Router#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#int Gi2/0/2

Router(config-if)#no shutdown

Router(config-if)#exit

Router(config)#exit

Router#

Replace Gi2/0/2 with your Gigabit interface.
