D-Port Test not starting

I am trying to establish a new link between 6510 Switches. Both of them are using identical 16G SR SFPs (HP QK724A). One is running FOS 7.4.1b and the other FOS 7.4.2c and both show the port in question as an Online D-Port. However,

 

fcsw-dus-b3:admin> portdporttest --show 22
D-Port Information:
===================
Port: 22
Remote WWNN: 10:00:c4:f5:7c:2f:f9:94
Remote port index: 8
Mode: Manual
No. of test frames: 1 Million
Test frame size: 1024 Bytes
FEC (enabled/option/active): Yes/No/No
CR (enabled/option/active): Yes/No/No
Start time: Wed Jul 25 11:28:24 2018
End time: -------------------
Status: NOT STARTED
================================================================================
Test Start time Result EST(HH:MM:SS) Comments
================================================================================
Electrical loopback -------- NOT STARTED -------- ----------
Optical loopback -------- NOT STARTED -------- ----------
Link traffic test -------- NOT STARTED -------- ----------
================================================================================
Roundtrip link latency: unknown
Egress power: Tx: -2.5 dBm, Rx: Not Avail.
Ingress power: Rx: -2.2 dBm, Tx: Not Avail.

 

It stays in this state, manual prodding with portdporttest --start doesn't help either. How do I run the D-Port test?

Re: D-Port Test not starting

Did you try portdisable/portenable on one side or on both sides?

Re: D-Port Test not starting

Yes, I had already tried that, it didn't help.

Hello,

I'am only thinking if the action is supported by HP SFP's.

They are just branded Brocade SFPs.

i had a customer with a similarly issue, here try the customer to start d_port test in a ISL / Trunk, and the test return Failed.

 

Now Q.:

 

1) is in you case a ISL/Trunk ?

2) are the Port on both site correct configured ?

3) what type of cable is in use OM3 or OM4 ?

4) did you try to run the command as admin or as root ?

Re: D-Port Test not starting

1) No, it's a D-Port link. The planned used later is as an IFL.
2) What are you looking for? I will paste the config of both ports.
3) Should be OM3
4) admin

Re: D-Port Test not starting

@mgoetze

 

can you please change the speed level a fixed on both side ?

 

you should do that with port disable, however I don't know if this is productive

 

1)portcfgpersistentdisable port_number

2)portcfgspeed port_number

3)portcfgpersistentenable port_number

sdiff shows some differences, not sure, but maybe there's something important that should match?
