Nexus 9396

try to get an sfp mpls fiber circuit up at our colo.  In the past  i've used the command 'no negotiate auto' on the interface on the 5k series.   but i don't see this as an option on the 9K?

Which port and which SFP?

And you're not trying to do MPLS on the 9300, right? Because the 9k's can't do MPLS.

It's a glc-lh-smd sfp.  we're not trying to do mpls on the nexus.  It's mpls on the provider backbone i believe.  Essentially, it's a layer 3 single mode fiber handoff from at&t.  It's an avpn circuit.  We have the exact same circuit at another datacenter going into a 5k and i had to  issue the command no negotiate auto before the link would come up.   speed and duplex are already hard-coded.

It could be that the command is not available because that SFP is 1g only.  The command itself is valid on the 9300's.

I opened a ticket with Cisco.   there was a bug in our nx-os.   You need to put the command 'no negotiate auto' on the interface and that command isn't available in the version we were on.  - 6.1(2)I3(3a)

we upgraded to  6.1(2)I3(4) and the problem is fixed.  we now  have our avpn circuit up after being able to issue that command.  One word of caution from the cisco tech was that was a recently found bug in  6.1(2)I3(4) that can cause the system to crash if you try to statically set the mtu on a vlan interface which i don't think we have the need to do.  

Anyway, issue solved.  Thanks
