I had set up a RSPAN session between two 4506's.  It worked fine and I used my desktops port on Switch 1 for the monitoring, and the source port was on switch 2.  After I was done capturing the traffic, I plugged in a different network cable so that I could log onto the switches and shutdown the monitoring sessions.  The problem is that my switch port (the one that was used for monitoring) will not come back up now, I have tried shutting it down and bringing it up again with shut - no shut but when I plug my ethernet cable I do not get a link and the swithc says that the port is down and down, do you know why this might be, is there something special that I need to do to reactivate this port?
