Trunk uplinks problem

Hi,

I have a strange problem on two links in my network that I can't figure out. I have problems with one 6509 1000BaseSX module that has two ports connecting to two other 6509's as redundant links. Every so often they will drop out of STP with "%PAGP-5-PORTFROMSTP:" error and soon after will come back. I first reseated the links and then replaced the patch cables but the problem keeps occurring every so often. They seem to run OK for about a week after I replaced the patches/reseted. Suspect the module might have something going on. Any ideas? Thanks.

Versions are 5.4(2)FW and 5.5(12)Sw

Re: Trunk uplinks problem

Do you have etherchannel configured on these two links ?

Give a "show port capabilities" on either ends to see whether all parameters on both links have been set properly.

Can you also paste the rest of the error message that pops up. (that means, the message that comes after "%PAGP-5-PORTFROMSTP).

Re: Trunk uplinks problem

Since there is no etherchannel configured, STP will run between the switches on both links and one of them will be in forwarding state and the other in blocking state. The above error messages could be due to a link flap. How often are you getting this messages ?

Re: Trunk uplinks problem

It varies, sometimes it happens a couple of times a day and other times it goes without an error msg for a week. That is why its kind of hard to pinpoint it. I appreciate your help.
