It just runs through all this and then freezes up!

And WTF is up with the Gigabit Ethernet?

AFAIK this is only 10/100

It came in with a complaint of no I/O on one of the 100base fiber ports which turned out to be a kinked up cable.

Now I need to test it and I cant get past this!

PS I know I'm in WAY over my head but I have to stumble along as best I can.









Are you putting those comands in manually? or does that just flash up on the screen?

do a show run and tell us the output

Soinds like a physical layer problem or something in startup-config got hosed.

Unplug everything and test... if that didn't work dump startup config.

hhmmm well Subnetmask will probably come along and make me look like a complete moron, but I'll still take a stab at it.

From what your saying it boots up then it looks like it starts loading the startup-config file and then it freezes. I would try to boot up into RMON mode erase the startup-config and redo it. Hopefully you've got it backed up. If so I would double check the startup-config and make sure everything is good. (no typos)

Is there a space between the "GigabitEthernet" and the "0/2"?

The IOS 'interface' command syntax is: interface type slot/port
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 7:59:55 AM EDT
Its possible that it is giving errors because the startup config is trying to use commands on a user level, not on privledged/enable mode, possibly even config mode.

I could be wrong though.

He says it locks up, he isn't able to put any comands in.

Go into Rmon and recover the config. Procedure varies by device, Cisco.com is your friend. Jeff
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 8:20:34 AM EDT
Could be someone loaded the wrong version of code on that switch, or the code may be corrupt.

Try getting the correct code, breaking into ROMMON and loading it.
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 8:20:45 AM EDT
If I remember correctly the interface command only works in the conf t area.

1. Attach to the console.
2. Unplug the power cable.
3. Hold down the mode button while plugging the switch back in. Release the mode button when the 1X LED goes out.
4. switch: flash_init
5. switch: load_helper
6. switch: rename flash:config.text flash:config.old
7. switch: boot
8. Enter 'n' at initial config dialog.
9. Switch>en
10. Switch#rename flash:config.old flash:config.text
11. Switch#copy flash:config.txt system:running-config (hopefully this works without locking the switch...)
12. Switch#sh run

If that works, start removing lines that don't belong there.

Hmmm...it's starting to sound like the wrong startup-config ended up on that switch. Just rename config.text (to keep it handy, just in case) and start over. Do you actually NEED the old config for anything?
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 4:37:52 PM EDT
It's old outdated hardware. Pitch the damn thing, get something newer.

When you get the newer hardware, don't let just any freaking moron touch the damn thing.

Dust off and nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.




Seriously, wipe it, clean, real clean. Then reboot.

Nothing wrong with the switch.

It just happens that there was a gig module in the switch before hand, and its configuration is still there.

Clear the config and start again, problem will be solved.
