I had to shut down all our company servers and unplug the switches early this week in order to have a generator installed in our company. The switches were all unplugged.
Since then we had some network problems and today I finally figured out that any computer that is plugged into one switch is having slight network problems. It is a Cisco Catalyst 2950. Anyone plugged into that switch is a little bit slow. I can easily tell by coping one file down to their computer. This should take about 5 seconds to do and anyone plugged into that switch will take 5-7 minutes to copy this file.
My question is, do I assume the switch just went bad after being unplugged and then plugged back in? Is there anything I can test for?
