ansi and annex d are same standards.. since frame switch is set to ansi, you need to set lmi type to ansi. lmi autosense is available from ios 11.x. So it will automatically sense the lmi configured on the switch.
Understood, however, I have an outage at a remote site and as this was a pre-config'ed router for disaster recovery and we've not updated IOS, we need to set the LMI type. The choices are "switched" and "PVC drop." I am assuming that this was before Cisco and ANSI standards. Which one would I choose in an ANSI net environment when ensuring proper programming?
You are welcome. Just curious to know, what is the IOS version being used??? is it lesser than a 10.0 ?? I once remember seeing a 2500 router with a 9.x...
According to my IT tech on site, its 11.x, but that would make no sense what so ever. Now he'll have no excuse why this node is not working by EOB.
the 11.x should work fine, except that, i think autosensing is enabled only from 11.2 ( i m not sure about this).
Is the link down, even after setting the frame-lmi type to ansi ?
what does a show frame-relay lmi reveal. Can you paste that output?
Just make sure that there is enough amount of ram and flash. the other day i had downloaded 12.3 for the 2500 and it was 15 mb in size. a min of 16 mb flash is needed for the 2500. 12mb min ram for the IP only version, while, 16 mb min ram for the IP Plus version.
