Bridging two 4006's on different VLANs

We have two 4006 switches:

[1] Switch#9 [4006 NmpSW 7.4(3)] is to share a section of its gigabit Ethernet module 6 [ws-x4448-gb-rj45 hw:1.0] which has been placed in VLAN 10,

[2] and switch#1 [4006 NmpSW 6.3(3)] requiring access to the "bridged" VLAN 10 on switch#9, via port 1 on one of its modules, 3, a ws-x4424-gb-rj45.

Switch#9 is in network and switch#1 in network

On switch#9 VLAN 10 has been set up for ports 33-48, port 48 will be the bridge port, currently set to 1000Mbps, with a cross-over cable installed and connected to switch#1 we get a status "inactive" for port 48.

On switch#1 port 1 we get a status “not connect”.

We’ve tried different cross-over cables, undertaking a module reset on switch#9’s module 6, disabling and re-enabling the bridge ports at each switch to avail, as well as disabling and enabling CDP.

Any suggestions?

My test systems, a 4003 & 2950, with a section of one of the 4003 modules VLAN’d [10] and bridged works fine.

Re: Bridging two 4006's on different VLANs

I think the main problem is your cross-over cable.It is different between normal 100baseTX cross-over.It's like 1-3,2-6,3-1,4-7,5-8,6-2,7-4,8-5.Because both modules are 1000baseT module.Any other problem can send email to
