I appreciate if anyone can help me with this. I just bought 4 units of Cisco ESW-520 24Ports switches. I did some testing and found out for PORTS 1 and 12 is in "Suspended" mode and thus not able to use.
This not happened to 1 but all 4 switches. Why is this so ? Can anyone guide me to disable the ports from going into "suspended" mode automatically ? I wouldn't want the ports to be in "Suspension" mode when it goes live and thus block the desktops from having internet access.
Ok, I think I found out what the priblem is. It seems that from factory, the ports come locked. You have to go to Security>Traffic Control>Port Security and unlock each port. Click the EDIT tab on the port you want to edit. Then un-check the ENABLE TRAP> (apply). Un-check LOCK INTERFACE> (apply). Change LEARNING MODE to CLASSIC LOCK> (apply). That should do it, but you'll have to do that for every port you want unlocked. I'm not to sure if there is a way to unlock then all at once.
