I ran into a small problem the other day that I'd like to get some feedback on.
I was connecting a Catalyst 3560 switch and an Allen Bradley Stratix switch via Fiber with LC Connectors. I couldn't get the ports to light up and kept getting "High Power" errors on the stratix end. (I didn't pull the exact logs).
On the catalyst end, I was using a Cisco Branded GBIC.
On the Stratix end, I was using an Allen Bradley branded GBIC.
I wound up putting a Cisco GBIC into the stratix switch and after that everything lit up all right.
Is there a stated requirement to have the same GBIC on both ends? Is there a best practice configuration that I should review to compare to my own?
This is our first time connecting the stratix and the catalyst via fiber, so I am just trying to do it right. ;-)
