ProCurve 2650 strange port behaviour

Hi,

I have a strange problem with HP ProCurve 2650 switch.

------------------------------------------
I 07/21/06 17:38:09 ports: port 38 is now off-line
I 07/21/06 17:38:11 ports: port 38 is now on-line
------------------------------------------

The log is full with these messages. The ports are different and the period that they appear is different.

The LACP is stopped.

--------------------------------------------
HP ProCurve Switch 2650(config)# sh lacp

LACP
no LACP ports found.

HP ProCurve Switch 2650(config)#
---------------------------------------------

Any ideas?

Re: ProCurve 2650 strange port behaviour

For ports that are going up and down, I would usually check first if the end-user is reporting any problems, check power saving settings on the PC, and check the cabling.

It can be normal while a PC is booting up or coming out of standby for the port to toggle a few times.

Disabling LACP which you look to have done can also help.

Hi

I think you did this:

2650# config t
2650(config)# no interface all lacp
2650(config)# write mem
2650(config)# show lacp

The response from the switch should be "no LACP ports found".

NOW , reload your Switch :), and everything should work fine after that.

Good Luck !!!

The strangest thing is that the ports go off-line only for 2 seconds.

Every time a (windows) machine boots here, we see 2 of these 2-second "gaps". Seems to happen when the computer loads its network services/drivers.

Petar Chonkov,

What is on port 38? Is it a Linux machine? A Windows machine? I would check a few things like the cable quality, port duplex mismatch, etc...
If a problem can be fixed, there's nothing to worry. If a problem can't be fixed, worrying ain't gonna help. Bottom line: don't worry.
