Dear experts

I have a specific switchport which goes into err-disabled mode around once a week and i'm trying to uncover why it is doing so.

show run
show port-security
Doing a show interfaces status err-disabled says that the reason is 'link-flap,' which i am not familiar with, i am hoping someone could shed some light on.

BTW end device is a windows pc.

link-flap usually means the network connection is being repeatedly disconnected and reconnected.

You can set thresholds for this and auto recovery for this type of error.

I would check the networking cable and sockets between the PC and switch to see if there are any loose connections.

you must be in configure mode to enable recovery.

use:

errdisable recovery cause link-flap
errdisable recovery interval timer_interval_in_seconds

you can check the status using
show errdisable recovery

dont forget to "copy run start"
