Listing Error-Dsiable ports in IOS

Is there a command(s) that can quickly show me a list of ports and which ones are in error-disable mode? I have not come across a way to do this.


Re: Listing Error-Dsiable ports in IOS

show interface status err-disabled


show interface status | include err-disabled

Re: Listing Error-Dsiable ports in IOS

You should be able to use:

show interfaces status err-disabled

to view the ports with status error disabled.

See this doc for details on error disabled ports:

if a port changes its status to err-diabled it records a syslog message; so you can use a syslog collector to get these messages and further process them if the collector supports this (email, etc)

Re: Listing Error-Dsiable ports in IOS

If I had no error-disabled ports I should not get a response from the switch correct?

I get a blank command line from the switch when I tried the command.

Re: Listing Error-Dsiable ports in IOS

'no response is a good response'

if you enter the command and you are not getting a listing then there is nothing to list..e.g there are no ports in error disabled state;

do a

show interface status

to see a list of all ports with their status
