Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Hi Jan, Dragos

Many thanks for yesterday. I have been going through the show tech output of the access switch. I posted some of the output below.

------------------ show etherchannel summary ------------------


Flags:  D - down        P - bundled in port-channel
        I - stand-alone s - suspended
        H - Hot-standby (LACP only)
        R - Layer3      S - Layer2
        U - in use      f - failed to allocate aggregator

        M - not in use, minimum links not met
        u - unsuitable for bundling
        w - waiting to be aggregated
        d - default port


Number of channel-groups in use: 1
Number of aggregators:           1

Group  Port-channel  Protocol    Ports
------+-------------+-----------+-----------------------------------------------
4      Po4(SD)          -        Gi1/0/49(D) Gi1/0/50(D)

From this, it doesnt show any protocol (PApg or LACP) for etherchannel and i also get this output for my trunkports under show interfaces switchports

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Hy,

Hmmm, interesting - Operational Mode: down (suspended member of bundle Po4)-

Can you copy the output from "sh int X status" for the four interfaces wich are in the etherchannel please? I want to see someting because:

"The interfaces in a port channel must share the same speed and duplex, trunking encapsulation(if not trunking – the same access vlan), the same STP cost per per VLAN, and no ports can have SPAN configured.   "

Best regards,

Dragos

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Abayomi,

what about allowed vlans on the trunk between these two switches? I don't see native vlan (vlan 1) to be allowed here, or any native vlan configured which would be allowed on this trunk.

Maybe the port-channels aren't even formed! Such as Dragos suggested.

Try to verify this by commands such as

show etherchannel summary

or

show interfaces port-channel 4

Best regards,

Jan

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Thanks Jan for your help, it's very much appreciated....there are other switches connected to the core switch. These switches have wireless AP's connected to them for laptop users...now there is no native vlan allowed on those trunks to those switches

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

The interface port channel are formed but it's just showing down, down(not connect)

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

The port-channel appear there like an interface once you've created the etherchannel

But from the "show run" is not complete configured

channel-protocol lacp

channel-group 4 mode active

I think you must put these comands on the interfaces of the switches, but on the extension switch it must be "passive" instead "active".

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Dragos,

I think that it could be configured just likethat:

channel-group 4 mode on

It will force the channeliling on and don't negotiate with other side. It should work however negotiation is better in the first stages of configuration - because if it doesn't work, you know there is a problem.

Best regards,

Jan

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Agree again

Beginner

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

yes Jan, I agree it can be configured like that. So that shouldn't be an issue. I see the GBIC modules when I issue a sh inventory, so I know it's not an issue with that. However I will need to check that on the core switch, unfortunately I have had

to leave site to attend to something else...will check on Monday. Thanks guys very much appreciated, Dragos and Jan. will post the show tech for any clues

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Abayomi,

then it means that the port-channels are not formed,  therefore spanning-tree instance for vlan 5 does not exists and cannot  be created and that's most likely why the management vlan is up,down. So  Dragos was going in the right direction!

There is one more thing if you are not sure about the GBIC compatibility. You can run

sh diag

command. If it outputs  "Unknown" instead of description of the module, it is not supported.

Best regards,

Jan

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Hy!

Another quick question: are you sure that you cabled fine the two switches? (gi1/0/49 with 5/1 and 1/0/50 with 6/1) because protocol down down , from what i know, it'a a physical layer problem. and i see the "channel-group 4 mode on" command has been already issued on both switches. and if everything is fine, do a debug. i'm not sure if tengigabit is understandig well with gigabit (maybe is a speed mismatch).

Best regards,

Dragos

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

And

1)  Have you verified via links lights or sh int that you have layer 1 connectivity?

2)  Have you verified int vlan 1 is shut down on the 2960 and gone into int vlan5 on the lan sw and performed a no shut?  On vlan1 you should have a no shut since I believe the 2960 can only have one active svi (could be wrong, comapring them to the 2950s here)..

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

Hi Jimmy,

Many thanks for your response. Everything is properly connected. Fibre patch cables are new and fibre patch panel connection was put in place a couple of days ago and has been tested and works all ok, SFP's have been changed but still no lights come on both switches. It does look like a mismatch somewhere but not been able to find it yet. I have checked to make sure vlan 5 isnt shut and and done a no shut under vlan 1, still no good.

Re: Unable to connect to Core Switch

please give the output from : sh int Gi1/0/49 status and sh int Gi1/0/50 status from Lan_EXT_SW and sh int Te5/1 status and sh int Te6/1 status from Core_SW
