Verifying That the Port Error Disable Setting Is Working Correctly

 

Purpose

Verify that the port error disable setting is working as expected for MAC limited and storm control interfaces.

Action

Display information about interfaces:

Meaning

For interfaces disabled by port security features, the sample output from the show ethernet-switching interfaces command specifies the reasons that the interfaces are disabled:

  • MAC limit exceeded—The interface is temporarily disabled because of a mac-limit error. The disabled interface is automatically restored to service when the disable-timeout expires.

  • MAC move limit exceeded—The interface is temporarily disabled because of a mac-move-limit error. The disabled interface is automatically restored to service when the disable-timeout expires.

  • Storm control in effect—The interface is temporarily disabled because of a storm control error. The disabled interface is automatically restored to service when the disable-timeout expires.
