Do a "sh vlan" and post the output.

Also, if you do a "sh spanning-tree summary" is there any output at all ?

Hi Ali

Doesn't matter about the L3 interfaces as this is layer 2 we are concerned about. Can you post the output of

1) sh vlan

Then pick one of the vlans and do a

"sh spanning-tree vlan "number you have picked"

2) Post output of "sh run" of switch

You need to have at least one interface up in the vlan for the spanning-tree algorithm to run.

If you have a trunk link that is up then this would do it but if you don't have any trunk links up then you need to bring up a port in the vlan for spanning-tree to start running.
