2621 amber light

I am expecting 2 T1s to come in to my router. I got a Cisco 2621 router with a VWIC T1 2-port DSU. I configured the ports with the appropriate controller commands for the card and I notice that one of the T1 port has the amber light on. The circuits are not in, so there is nothing connected to the T1 ports. Any ideas?

Thanks

If nothing is connected, then the amber light is indicative of that.

You can try to plug in a T1 loopback to clear that light if you want until the T1 circuits are delivered.

What is strange is the amber light is not on for the other port.

Then it's that port you have to worry about.

Send me over the exact card model, a snippet on the configuration of this card, and let me know what lights are on on each port (AL, CD, and/or LP)
