The errdisable status indicates that the port was automatically disabled by the switch operating system software. This occurred because of an error condition encountered on the port.
To resolve this issue, perform these steps:
Determine if a port is in errdisable status by issuing 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 command output:
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 sends a message to the console describing why the port was disabled when it puts a port in the errdisable state. If the syslog is configured, the message will be available on the syslog server as well.
Another way to determine the reason for errdisable status is to issue the show errdisable-timeout command. This command is available in Catalyst OS (CatOS) version 5.4(1) or later.
This is a sample output:
Cat5500> (enable) show errdisable-timeout ErrDisable Reason Timeout Status ------------------- -------------- bpdu-guard disable channel-misconfig disable duplex-mismatch enable udld disable other disable
Interval: 30 seconds
Port ErrDisable Reason ---- ----------------- 3/2 duplex-mismatch
If a duplex mismatch is the reason for the errdisable status, check these settings:
Verify that the speed and duplex settings are the same on the switch port and the connected device. To display the speed and duplex settings on the switch port, issue the show port command. Hard set both sides to the same settings if possible.
To hard set the duplex on the port, issue the set port duplex command. For example, to set the duplex on port 3/2 to full, issue the set port duplex 3/2 full command.
To hard set the speed to 100 on the same port, issue the set port speed 3/2 100 command.
Verify that the Network Interface Card (NIC) supports the speed and duplex settings required and that the NIC drivers are up to date.
Once the cause of the duplex mismatch has been found and corrected, reenable the port by issuing the set port enable command. For example, to reenable port 3/2, issue the set port enable 3/2 command.
If the set port enable command is issued without the cause of the errdisablestatus being corrected, the port will eventually go back to errdisable status.
Hello everyone! I am trying to update the following EEM script that will include the vrf, vrf CORP_OFFICE. This script works great with out the VRF but I need to be able to include it because it is causing the backup to fail. event manager ...
I have a pair of old 3560's with 1gb copper SFP's, running a dot1q trunk. I can go from a 1gb SFP on one switch to a FE port on the other switch no problem, but if I try and go from 1Gb to 1Gb, the link won't come up unless I insert a crossover cabl...
