Problem fiber ports on OS6360-PH24 and OS6560-48X4 with cable SFP-10G-C1M

Hi I'm new in this forum. I was going to connect two Alcatel Lucent switches together the OS6360-PH24 and the OS6560-48X4. But I used the SFP-10G-C1M cable (10 Gigabit direct attached cable). For switch OS6360-PH24 Fixed 1RU chassis 24 RJ-45 PoE 10/100/1G BaseT, 2 1G* RJ45/SFP combo, 2 SFP+ (1G/10G) uplink or VFL ports. 380W power budget. *10G license upgradeable. Instead for switch OS6560-48X4 Gigabit fixed chassis in 1RU size. Includes 48 RJ-45 10/100/1G BaseT, 2xSFP(1G) and 4xSFP+ (1G/10G) uplink/stacking ports, internal AC supply, power cord, user guides, and 19” rack mount hardware. Basically, once I inserted this SFP-10G-C1M cable between the two switches, I underwent changes in the ports. Basically I lost port 1 for both switches. In OS6360-PH24 it does not see port 25, 27, 28 and created 4 more ports 0/29 to 0/32. In OS6560-48X4 it does not see port 49 and created port 0/31 and 0/32. What happened ? Is there a command to bring the switch ports back to the initial situation, because even restarting the switches restarts in this configuration? Also in which guide can I understand the operating logic of the fiber ports?

For the OS6360-PH24 after connecting the SFP-10G-C1M cable I see: show vlan 1 members port type status ----------+-----------+--------------- 1/1/2 default inactive 1/1/4 defaults inactive 1/1/23 defaults inactive [....] 1/1/24 defaults inactive 1/1/26 defaults inactive 0/29 default inactive 0/30 default inactive 0/31 default inactive 0/32 default inactive

For the OS6560-48X4 after connecting the SFP-10G-C1M cable I see: show vlan 1 members port type status ----------+-----------+--------------- 1/1/2 default inactive 1/1/3 default forwarding 1/1/4 defaults inactive [.....] 1/1/48 default inactive 1/1/50 defaults inactive 1/1/51 defaults inactive 1/1/52 defaults inactive 0/31 default inactive 0/32 default inactive

Hi nickyfulls,

it looks like you have used our auto-fabric (out-of-the box auto configuraton feature) which is active by default.

auto-fabric contains many features, one of them is auto-linkagg capability. As both switches have this feature active, the connected physical port has been "enhanced" to a linkagg, in case you are going to double the speed by a second connection later on.

you would see this by "show linkagg ports" command, as leading 0/ is our way to indicate it's a lag.

if you don't want to take benefit of the auto-fabric features you can disable those features. (auto-fabric admin-state disable) - keep in mind that already generated configurations are not deleted, for this delete it yourself or by taken a new "vcboot.cfg" with auto-fabric disabled.
