initial configuration of a switch

Hi ,

sorry if this might be silly but i am new to this world . I have a HPE FF 5940 switch , i have configured an admin user and a mangemement interface (M-GigabitEthernet0/0/0)  and ssh connection to the switch. these are the only configuration i did .

i have connected interface 1/0/1 with a 1GB transeiver 1/0/3 with a 10GB transeiver . this is the configuration :

Interface              Link            Speed          Duplex       Type PVID Description
XGE1/0/1               UP             1G                 F                  A       1
XGE1/0/2              DOWN       auto             A                  A       1
XGE1/0/3              UP             10G(a)          F(a)              A      1

the problem is that the traffic doesn't flwo through the switch  what i mean is i tried pinging host behind the 1GB interface from the host behind the 10GB port , i also tried pinging the M-GigabitEthernet interface from the host connected in 1/0/3 without success . 

what an i missing here ? 

thanks

Re: initial configuration of a switch

What display transceiver interface Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 and display transceiver interface Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/3 report?

Re: initial configuration of a switch

let me explain the topology , it is a simple one

i am connecting interface 1/0/1 using 1GB transceiver to a host with IP 172.16.16.155 .

interface 1/0/3 using 10GB transceiver to a host with IP 172.16.16.73 .

switch outputs:

display mac-address interface Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1

display mac-address interface Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/3

MAC Address VLAN ID State Port/NickName Aging
001c-7f60-6465 1 Learned XGE1/0/3 Y

Mac : 001c-7f60-6465  is the mac address of host 172.16.16.73 which is behind the 10GB transceiver . 

looks like the switch isn't able to deal with 1GB transceiver . (i tried so many 1GB transceivers with different manufactures)

Re: initial configuration of a switch

Hi,

Could you try moving the 1 Gig transceiver to - say interface Te1/0/45 with same configuration on Te1/0/45 as on Te1/0/1

And then try again.

The reason i ask this is because I've seen some really weird things on a HP5700, where (me guessing now) the ASIC controlling the port-group might be programmed somehow to be either 10Gig or 1Gig, but not both. And then it does not work (if you switch directly between them).

As you I saw link up, but never a MAC-address.
