Speed/Duplex between two different switchs & SFP

Hi everybody,

I'm sorry about my poor english... I'm French (but it is not contagious)

I need your help (or TAC Help ) about speed and duplex problems.

My network :

[C2960G-24TC-L with sfp GLC-FE-100LX on Gig 0/23] <--> (Singlemode Fiber 9/125µ) <--> [Cisco SF200-24 with sfp MFELX1 on Gi1]

Autonegociation everywhere...

My problem :

%CDP-4-DUPLEX_MISMATCH: duplex mismatch discovered on GigabitEthernet0/23 (not full duplex), with f02929f97095 gi1 (full duplex).

- I can't force speed/duplex on MFELX1 (actually a-full a-100)

- I can't force speed/duplex on GLC-FE-100LX (actually a-half a-100)

Is there an incompatibility between this equipements ?

Configuration detail :

WS-C2960G-24TC-L   12.2(58)SE2           C2960-LANBASEK9-M

Cisco SF200-24 Firmware Version (Active Image):

- I can't force speed/duplex on MFELX1 (actually a-full a-100)

- I can't force speed/duplex on GLC-FE-100LX (actually a-half a-100)

Disable interface CDP on both uplinks. 

Thank you Leo,

It doesn't work, but I found an solution !

A strange solution...

I forced the C2960G-24TC-L to work with SFP :

media-type sfp

When I do that, I have the possibility to force the duplex (but not the speed... ok why not... ) :

duplex full

It is not very clean but my link is up and full-100 both sides.

Not very clean because :

C2960 side = force duplex, auto speed

SF200 side = auto duplex, auto speed

No errors... the link is clean.

Anyone known the reason or a better solution ?
