Re: BUG .,. or not ??

this is a limitation with the ws-x4418. supports trunking only on ports 1 and 2 because the

ports are fully independent, nonblocking Gigabit Ethernet. All the rest of the ports are multiplexed in four groups of four ports

Please provide a more detailed explanation of the problem. It is not clear what the question is.

From the info provided, you are asking what the difference is between ports 2 and 3 on a ws-x4418 module and I'm sure that's not what you are asking.

Thanks.

The problem is that there are no difference between the two interfaces, but at port 3 I can´t enter the command "switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q" > "% Invalid input detected at '^' marker" and at port 2 I can enter it normally. However the configuration of both trunks (sh int trunk module 2) are OK, but there is no entry in the running-config of port 3 !!!

Re: BUG .,. or not ??

Hmm... I think a vital clue is where it is saying your input is bad, its acting like the prompt "C4506(config-if)#" is part of the command. The "^" that tells where the bad input is appears to be on the "C" of the C4506. Strange...

The marker is displaced. Original it´s at the (e)ncapsulation !!! If I type a "?" after the "switchport trunk", there is no "encapsulation" entry !!!

Module X4418 is not fully support ISL trunk protocol.

Port 1 and 2 support ISL / Dot1q.

  That was why you can use "switchport trunk encaptulation dot1q"

Port 3 to 18 only support dot1q

  That was why there is no command entry of "switchport trunk encaptulation XXXX "
