My situation is as follows. We are connecting from a 4510R (Sup V), WS-X4418-GB blade to a 3750G-48PS-E. The distance is around 1500 feet (MM fiber), patching fiber through one other location. When I use a WS-G5486 GBIC and GLC-LH-SM SFP with mode conditioning cables at each end, I see the numerous input errors (runts and CRCs).

When I connect this same 1500 foot link using a WS-G5484 GBIC and a GLC-SX-MM, I see no errors at all.
In other words, using MM throughout even though the distance is a bit out of spec, I see no errors. When I try to operate within spec and use mode conditioning cables with a single mode GBIC and SFP, I take errors.
If this were my only link, I would just run it out of spec (because it's not that far out). My overarching issue is that I have ten connections of long length, some up to 3000 ft through multiple other locations. I think that it's unlikely that running MM throughout all these connections will be successful.
Has anyone seen anything like this before? It almost seems as though the problem is isolated to the blade on the 4510. Perhaps I got a bad batch of GBICs and/or SFPs? Or bad mode conditioning cables?
I run a few links that have 2 or 3 segments of multimode plant fiber, patched in the middle with multimode, with LH transponders attached at either end with a cable made out of two halves of a standard multimode and a singlemode patch. Not quite sure how long the runs were but they were too long for MM SX.
We bought a small inline coupler meant for mode buildout just in case it started to act up, more for CYA purposes than anything else. We haven't had a need to use it.
