Re: One of 4 trunk ports is not working

you are right. now, I used 2G SFP

Now, if I change SFP to 4G on both side, then SWITCH B shows no_light. I tried different 4G SFP; SWITCH A shows "In_Sync". I tried different 4G SFP, the same.

"portcfgshow" shows the same result from these 2 switches.

SWITCHA>switchshow

Re: One of 4 trunk ports is not working

try again please with "sfpshow -f" I see only the vendor and Serial Number.

the output show as truncated, usually you should see the Speed i.e. 400, 200,100 by 4G SFP

200,100 by 2G SFP

repeat again "portcfgpersistentdisable"

"portcfgdefault" for Port 0, do "portstatsclear" and "portlogclear"

check the port have same setting and Speed as other port in trunk group

then enable the port again "portcfgpersistentenable"

unplug the cable before execute the command, and plug again when the port is enable

Re: One of 4 trunk ports is not working

I tried all you said here, and the same, the following is the output of switchshow from two switches respectively:

Area Port Media Speed State

==============================

  0   0   id    N4   No_Light

Area Port Media Speed State

==============================

  0   0   id    AN   No_Sync

Re: One of 4 trunk ports is not working

If I use 2G SFP, both side appeared to be "online", which means the cable is fine, port should be fine as well, I think. If 4G SFP is not good, why I can retrieve  information by sfpshow from it?  I also tried different 4G SFP.
