Last night I was implementing Diffserv 46 QoS on my Cisco 2821 that has an HWIC-1GE-SFP card and a GLC-ZX-SM fiber module. When we inserted the commands, and applied the service policy to the interface, we immediately dropped network connectivity. The interface went in to an up/down state and would not come back. We went as far as removing the commands and rebooting the router. We have been told that the GLC-ZX-SM module failed. Does anyone know what could cause this?
If this was done in a lab environment, where the devices were a few feet apart instead of a few kilometers apart, you may have burned out th ereceiver if you didn't use some sort of attenuation between the devices.
ZX is a pretty long haul gizmo. Even if the units were some distance apart, did you measure to see if the signal was within the operational envelope / optical budget between the two devices?
This was a production router with a 100Mb Gig-E handoff from the ISP. The other end of the fiber is 27 miles away. We have been in production with this router for over a year and there have been no reboots until we backed out of the commands last night when the interface went Up/Down... That is what has me concerned. All that we added was the QoS commands then the interface went down...
Can you verify with the ISP to make sure that your interface to their system is still up?
Perhaps your QOS config generated something that they interpreted as an invalid profile, or an attack profile ... something that would cause their protection / security systs to engage and drop or blackhole you traffic.
If you haven't checked with them, it might be a good starting point, since you said you've reset the router back to its original configuartion.
We contacted the ISP and they did not see any errors or malicious profile. They administratively shut down the interface and brought it back up several times. Each time the interface would go UP/UP then immediately revert back to UP/DOWN. That is another odd occurance, the interfaces would see each other as UP, but the line protocol would be DOWN...

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
