Hi,

 

with switchstatusset, you can verify the necessary number of faulty ports to change the switch status to DOWN.

 

In order to check the "faulty" ports you can run command fwportdetailshow.

Re: Faulty ports monitor DOWN on ds5300

I don't have this command:

DS_5300B_GORNJI:admin> switchstatusset
rbash: switchstatusset: command not found

And don't have Fabric Watch licensed.

 

Is there any other way to see what put switch state to down?

with switchshow I see :

 46  46   012e00   id    N8   Mod_Inv     FC  "Speed Mismatch / Incompatible Vendor"

policy is set like this:

DS_5300B_GORNJI:admin> switchstatuspolicyshow
The current overall switch status policy parameters:
                   Down    Marginal
 ----------------------------------
     PowerSupplies    1           1
      Temperatures    2           1
              Fans    2           1
             Flash    0           1
     MarginalPorts   20           8
       FaultyPorts    1           0
       MissingSFPs    0           0

How can I be sure that port 46 is guilty fro DOWN status

Re: Faulty ports monitor DOWN on ds5300

According to the policy configured, with only one faulted port the status fo the swith will become DOWN. 

 

Remove the SFP in port 46 and the status should disappear. Additioanaly, you ought to modify the policy so that a single faulty port doesn't make the status of the switch change to DOWN.
