What are the differences between the interface states? I can't find anything anywhere!!

@jmarchant,

 

Are you looking at the speed/duplex/state information? 

ukn/ukn/down(power-down) is when you set the Link-State to Disable

disabled/down: You've disabled the interface. 

forced/ukn: You've forced the speed/duplex setting and the status of the interface is unknown. Usually caused by unsupported SFPs or if you statically set the link-state to up but the interface is unplugged. 

forced/down: You've forced the speed/duplex settings and the interface is down.

Hi @jmarchant

The various link states for Ethernet interfaces are:

 

  • Green—Configured and up
  • Red—Configured but down or disabled
  • Gray—Not configured

Thanks,

Luke.

Unfortuantly I do not have webgui access for this enviornment, only CLI.

@jmarchant,

Also you may want to update your code version. Those are pretty old and don't really come into play on newer releases.
