An EtherChannel misconfiguration results in a spanning tree loop, which causes the port status to become errdisable.
The port status may become errdisable because of an EtherChannel misconfiguration.
The errdisable status indicates that the port was automatically disabled by the switch operating system software because of an error condition encountered on the port.
To determine if a port is in errdisable status, issue the show port command. For example, to check the status on port 3/2, issue the show port 3/2 command.
This is a sample:
Cat5500> (enable) show port 3/2 Port Name Status Vlan Level Duplex Speed Type ----- ------------------ ---------- ---------- ------ ------ ----- ------------ 3/2 errdisable 1 normal auto auto 10/100BaseTX
The switch will send a message to the console describing why the port was disabled when it puts a port in the errdisable state. If syslog is configured, the message will be available on the syslog server as well.
Another way to determine the reason for the errdisable status is to issue the show errdisable-timeout command. This command is available in CatOS 5.4(1) or later. Sample command output is below.
Cat5500> (enable) show errdisable-timeout ErrDisable Reason Timeout Status ------------------- -------------- bpdu-guard disable channel-misconfig enable duplex-mismatch disable udld disable other disable
Interval: 30 seconds
Port ErrDisable Reason ---- ----------------- 3/2 channel-misconfig 3/3 channel-misconfig
If EtherChannel is misconfigured between two switches, ports may become errdisable.
Check the EtherChannel configuration on both switches. If one side is configured for EtherChannel in the On mode, the peer ports must also be in On mode or they will go to errdisable.
The On mode of EtherChannel does not send Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) packets to negotiate with the other side before channeling. It assumes the other side is channeling. If the other side is not channeling, the Spanning-Tree Protocol (STP) detects a loop and places the channeling ports into errdisable status.
These are valid settings for Etherchannel to work properly:
If both sides are set to auto the channel will not come up.
Verify that all ports in the channel have the same speed and duplex settings
Once the cause of the errdisable status is found and corrected, re-enable the port by issuing the set port enable command.
For example, to re-enable ports 3/2-3, issue the set port enable 3/2-3 command. If the set port enable command is issued without the cause of the errdisable status being corrected, the port eventually goes back to the errdisable status.

Hi all. For a couple of years I've had two Cisco 1941 routers running IOS and BVI interfaces to support some end user devices. I have two Cisco ISR4321 running IOS-XE which from what I've read you must do BDI interfaces. I attached a diagram and applicabl...
Dear all,Now I have been investigating whether Cat65-MSFC can configureNetFlow NAT record or not. For instance other vendor such as FortiGate can support so I think Cisco might support for this.https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/6.0.6/handb...
