6450 uplink with sfp fiber modules

Post by chriszattoni » 05 Feb 2014 16:32

This seems like a pretty obvious question, but after searching through the documentation I'm still having a hard time getting these links to come up..
Is there a command I'm missing to enable these?
I'm just trying to use the sfp ports as uplinks.

I've got 2 6450 switches, and each has an sfp fiber transceiver in port 1/49

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: 6450 uplink with sfp fiber modules

Post by devnull » 06 Feb 2014 03:34

Not sure what you want to achive, but apparently you only have vlan 5 on your uplink, so vlan 1,55 and/or 99 is not transported.

try to ping from one device in vlan 99 on SW1 to another on sw2..

then do a "vlan 1 55 99 802.1q 1/49" on both switches..

What do you mean with: does not come up?

no link LED ?
-> show interfaces 1/49 on both switches
-> show ni
-> show interfaces 1/49 port

What SFP do you use? 10G is only usable after a software licence install otherwise a link show come up without problem.. try different transceiver and/or cable.


I would probably not giving the switches an IP in DATA (you obviviously have a routing device with 192.168.5.1 so no need to have the switches accessible in that networks).

Thank you,

That is correct - by "does not come up" I mean there are no link LEDs. The transceivers we're using are sfp-gig-lx ordered directly from Alcatel. They are the exact models we currently use for an uplink between a 6850e and 6400.

The only thing I'm trying to accomplish currently is an uplink connection over the 1GB fiber sfp's that carries only VLAN 5.
VLAN 55 will be reached through interface 1/44, and VLAN 99 is not connected to anything, and is only used to change the default VLAN from 1 on the ports that aren't used.

I only gave them IPs in the "data" vlan so i could ping to verify.
Also, it just occurred to me, is having the ports 1/49 in vlan 5 enough to make it active? currently there are no devices plugged in, and no other ports in vlan 5, only the sfp ports.

we're getting our fiber tested again now, just in case.
I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something obvious.

If they are in the same location i'd use a short fiber cable for tests as you can't do the *DISCLAIMER DON'T EVER DO THIS* "have a look where the red light is" with LX/Singlemode Transceivers..

so: test the transceivers and/or cable. you should not need any config for that. In fact: link LEDs should be on as soon as you have a physical link regardless of config.

I believe if you try to use the stack module for uplink (at least in 6850 not sure whther this exists for 6450) you need some config. but not for the 2 SFP ports on the front.

Ok. Thanks very much for your response. I was hoping there might be some command I overlooked to power up the SFP ports.
Unfortunately they're about a mile apart.
I'm going to try to put one of these switches in place of our main switch after hours tonight since I know that the SFPs and fiber there are good.

Thank you for your help.

The problem turned out to be the physical fiber.
Thanks very much for your help.

I am having a similar problem i am setting up a redundant fiber between a 2 6450 stacks. Using fiber the original loop works fine and i tested the new fiber and gbx cards so that is good. I am using demo licenses on the new fiber until i receive my new licenses. Are these licenses below 10G
Thanks,
Bill
