LINE-PROTOCOL FLAPPING

Hi all.

I 've four switches with LINE-PROTOCOL FLAPPIG.

For example, you can see the following example:

*************************************************

As you can see, there are a lot of LINE-PROTOCOL flapping with no error nor colision on the interface.

Any idea??

Thank you!!

LINE-PROTOCOL FLAPPING

Hi David,

Can you please post the output of the following commands?

show run int fa0/15

show int fa0/15 counters

show int fa0/15 counters errors

show int fa0/15 counters protocol status

show int fa0/15 stats

show int fa0/15 status

Also, what is connected to that interface - is it some end device or another switch?

Best regards,

Peter

Hi Peter.

There are a Dell desktop connected.

Here you are the outputs:

Now there are anybody connected but normally the interface is a-100, a-full

Thank you!
