When comparing the two outputs it is clear that the native VLAN is different on each of the ports.

On Valimo it is 451 and on SoneraCloud it is 1 (default).

CDP identifies this through its message exchange and provides the log message that you have pasted.

You will need to correct this configuration on either side in order to make them consistent otherwise you will continually see these log messages.

Here is the command to change the native vlan for your reference:

switchport trunk native vlan x     (where x i the VLAN you choose)


on Sonera Cloud is :

Access Mode VLAN: 301 (VLAN0301)

Mind the fact that you have static access on one side and trunking on the other side.


Yes it is.

Thanks for pointing that outabout the static access.

I have got it fixed. What I did was to have simlar configuration as that of the fa0/1 interface on a gi0/2 interface.

Immideiately I did this, it all went ok and the QinQ tunnelling config allows traffic from the non tagged access port.

But could you tell me the implication of the static access for future situation.


I have used switchport native vlan x command earlier before posting.

But I guess i chose a wrong vlan ID
