Re: Operational Status down

Normally if the status is admin up/operational down, that means the port's enabled, but nothing's plugged in (or the server is shut down).

Plug something in, or admin disable the port.

Re: Operational Status down

What numerical value is being returned for the interface status ? 

 

ifOperStatus 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.8

 

There are 7 possible values :

 

1 : up
2 : down
3 : testing
4 : unknown
5 : dormant
6 : notPresent
7 : lowerLayerDown

 

 

Have a nice day :)

Re: Operational Status down

Use snmp - either a MIB browser, or snmpwalk/snmpget.

Re: Operational Status down

nnmsnmpwalk.ovpl -c <communitystring> <nodeip> ifOperStatus

 

check the o/p for that interface, if its value is showing as 2 then you can confirm that there is something need to be corrected from the network team.

 

Cheers!
