Flapping T1 with 2-Cisco 1720 Routers connected Point to Point

I am having a problem with a site where I have configured two identical Cisco 1720 routers with T1 CSU/DSU WIC's. The T1 goes up and down about every two minutes. When the serial side is up, we can ping the other sides hosts and get to the resources. When the line goes down, we get destination unreachable. Verizon tested the line and says that it tested fine and is the hardware. Question: Could a router mis-configuration cause this type of problem?

If needed, I can post the router configs.

Thanks,

Pete

It’s probably a clocking issue, how about a show config of the serial interfaces?

Agree with Dr-IP
One side needs to provide clocking. The default config is to get clocking from the line. On one side, you need to add this:
  interface serial 0
    service-module t1 clock source internal

I am currently not getting flapping anymore, but alarm lights on both sides with no connection. Verizon tested from both sides and said the line came up clean.

Any help with my config would be appriciated.

Did you try adding this to the config of one router?

interface serial 0
service-module t1 clock source internal

Note, only do it on one of the routers as doing it in both will cause problems too.
