Point to point Fiber connection

 

 

 

Hi all,

  We have a P2P 100 Mb link between our Datacenters.  Connection is terminated on 2960 stack switch on both ends. The configuration on the switch is normal. Today the switch port has gone down. We tot its ISP problem, but after some time we have shut and no shut which made the connection up.

 

Now i want to know is this UDLD or other problem which caused the link down. There are no logs related to this.

Please suggest any config if you have

 Hi Satya, Syslog from both

 

Hi Satya,

 

Syslog from both sides devices during time of issue would help to check what triggered the link down.

 Akash you are right, but

 

Akash you are right, but have removed syslog on that day for some server issue.

Let me know if you know any in general config for a P2P link with  fiber termination on switch.

Hi Satya,

Hi Satya,

 

So far it looks like that port went to errordisabled mode and that is why it was down and shut/no-shut helped to recover it. Since this fiber connectivity is provided by ISP and transmission is involved There could be below possible reasons when port may go to error disable state

- UDLD

- Link was flapping continuously

- Loopback error

 

There are other reasons also, you can refer below link

 

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/lan-switching/spanning-tree-protocol/69980-errdisable-recovery.html

 

Once link is down due to errdisable, to recover it you need to perform shut/no-shut even though root problem is resolved.  Or you should have errdisable recovery should be enabled.
