Port Flapping Issue

Hi there,

 

        According to syslog, one port of one of our switches keeps flapping. Goes up and down. The end device of the port is a sharp printer. I tried to change cable and hard code speed to match printer setting. Do you have similar issue and know the solution? Is it possible that printer lose network connection during deep sleep? Thank you.

YES it is! Also workstations can show that behavior.

if possible you can search how to disable the network interface from power saving.

alternatively you can disable link up/down messages from the log in interface configuration mode

      "no logging event link-status"

Re: Port Flapping Issue

Post the complete output to the command "sh interface <PORT>".
Plug a laptop on the same port and see if the port flaps or not.

Re: Port Flapping Issue

The printer in a different location and cannot be unplugged during business hours, so I might test the port with different device later.

I realized that the output of the command still shows half duplex, event I literally typed in duplex full in the interface config. So it looks like it changed back to half duplex after the interface back up from down status. It showed full duplex before the interface went down. After it's back up for a while, it changed to full duplex again. so confused.

 

Here is the result of the command:

Re: Port Flapping Issue

Hello

Change speed/duplex to auto negotiate on the printer and the access port test again.



kind regards
