Re: 3640 E1 IMA problem

Well I've solve it. I've had ATM2/0 interface outside group and enabled, than I've had ATM2/1-4 in IMA group with problems, and ATM2/5-7 interfaces ALSO ALIVE. In one document I've found that NM-8E1-IMA on 3640 supports only four IMA groups and that unassigned ATM channel ocupies one IMA group so basically I was left with no available IMA groups.

After shutting down of ATM2/5-7, IMA group came up.
