PA-820 Interface configured but down

L0 Member

As the title states. I have an interface on PA-820 that shows "configured but down". 

This is really silly but I know the interface was "switched off" by another network admin. Under Advance --> LinkState is set to Auto already. 
There is some other setting that put the interface in a non-workable state which I just cannot find it.

Hello @ITBrute

 

to me it looks like the cable is disconnected. Have you verified that cable is connected and device on the other side is powered on?

 

Kind Regards

Hey @PavelK  there is nothing  connected it is just vacant. I wanted to connect a switch but I can't because the port is down.

Hello @ITBrute

 

this is expected. The interface is enabled, but nothing is connected, therefore marked as down (red). After you connected cable, it should come online (green) unless there is connectivity issue. The only scenario other then these two is gray where interface is set to default KB.

 

Kind Regards
