MP7500B - Secondary EXport

Hi, I am in trying to configure a secondary EXport to connect a second edgeFabric to my MP7500B FC Router.

Currently I have an existing EXport (port 4 - Backbone 1 - Fabrid ID 30) for FAB1 and would like to have FAB2 on a separate EXport.

I simply connected an LC-LC cable between the the 7500 and the 5100 FAB2.

Configured port as Export (port 6 - Persistent enable - Backbone 1 - Fabric ID 29). But i am seeing the port come online. The port is not lit.

I checked licensing and found to be ok. I changed the SFP, and still the port is no lit.

I have the support save dump if anyone can help.

What am I missing?

Realy, I'm total confused.

I meant to say the Port did NOT come online (status: No_Sync).

What is preventing the port from showing the "Neighbouring Switch / Edge Switch)
