2916 SFP Connection

All,



I need some help setting up my SFP connection on my

Baseline 2916 SFP Plus.

All cables are tested and working. But as soon as I

connect the cable to the SFP port, no joy.

Has anybody any idea??



Regards,



Chris

You need to make sure that the SFP is a 3com one and that it is defined compatible with that switch.

check that on the product website of 3com.

Techno,



Allready done that! Looking at the sheet the 3CSFP91 is

compatible with the 3com Baseline 2916 SFP plus. Also

checked the fiber and that's working. The SFP ports are

green so the SFP modules are accepted.

Four of the copper Ports share with the four SFP ports. If you have cable connected to one of these copper ports then the matching SFP will not work. Switch has a total of 16 ports

That is true concerning the combo/shared ports.

Also, on some other managed switches, you must to undo shutdown the ports.



As for fiber links, you've got to match the tx/rx and to watch for the proper optical cord(modal type and polishment).



Is the equipment on the other end using the same transceiver?

Re: 2916 SFP Connection

Good morning all,



Thks for all the solutions so far.

The problem at the moment is that I won't be in office

for some time to test all the solutions. As soon as I

am back, or my college, we're going to try them out.



To give some answers to your questions or statements.



The 2916 doesn't have a big CLI. There are no

configurations possible on the ports in the CLI. So I

can't actived or deactived any ports.



The GBIC in the switch are LC and on the other end it

is VF45.



AS soon as there is any or no progress in the matter I

will let you know.



Best regards,



Chris
