how to make it active?


Re: span inactive

Hi Friend,

Make sure you have your source and destination port connected. Also Change the command

"set span 9/1 2/1 both inpkts disable learning enable multicast enable create " to

set span 9/1 2/1 both inpkts disable learning enable multicast enable and press enter.

This should make it work.

HTH, Please rate if it does.

Re: span inactive

I think that Amit is on the right track when he comments about the source and destination ports. It would be helpful to see the output of show port 2/1 and show port 9/1. I suspect that one (or perhaps both) of the ports is not active.
