ports drop on cisco 2950
Posted on 2003-03-07
Maybe you can make some sense of this. 1st floor computers appear as though their network connections drop. Not all at the same time though. There are still link lights though. We assumed network was gone because they couldn't work with the servers anymore and couldn't ping their gateway on the corerouter. I had run a netdiag /debug and we saw it find everything up to the gateway then it stalled. We then tried pinging the router and the gateway, no response but we then pinged servers up here an got responses. Just to check, we tried the gateway again and got no response. Reset the network connection and it all comes back.
A trace at the time showed no response from the first hop then a response from the server.

We do have port fast on and tried to configure the ports for both auto and static speeds with the workstation configs to be matched.
