Interface is down

Hi,

I am creating a vlan on a 4948 and I have assigned the GigabitEthernet ports 1-6 to vlan 5.

I used the no shutdown command for each interface, but yet it still says GigabitEthernet 1/1 is down, lilne protocol is down. I understand the line protocol is down because we do not yet have the cables hooked up. However, why is the interface down?

Thanks and I really hope I can get this soved today.

Re: Interface is down

The interface is down because it's not connected.

Re: Interface is down

Oops! My bad!

As soon as I plugged in the cable, both went to UP.

I thought that the interface was supposed to be up and the line protocol down in this case.
