Is the below interface a trunk port or an access port ? I think it was once a trunk port and than it was changed to an access port , and the encapsulation mode still shows.

Any help?


interface GigabitEthernet2/0/9
description trunkport to blade SWA
switchport access vlan 10
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode access
no cdp enable
spanning-tree bpdufilter enable
spanning-tree bpduguard enable

It is an access port.

switchport mode access forces it to access mode for vlan 10.

If you want to change to a trunk exclusively:

nterface GigabitEthernet2/0/9
description trunkport to blade SWA
no switchport access vlan 10
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
switchport nonnegotiate trunk
no cdp enable
spanning-tree bpdufilter enable
spanning-tree bpduguard enable

If it should be an access port, get rid of : switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
