    How is the usage of the first two ports gi0/0/0 and gi0/0/1 chosen when switching between the SFP and the RJ45 - I recently had to install an SFP into slot 0 but this didn't work, so I had to plug the RJ45 back in. However plugging it into slot 1 worked. does anyone know why it did not work as expected. The configurations for both the first 2 ports were the same.

    Please see how the ports are supposed to function in the 7200 installation guide here:  http://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/EntryId/10377/Default.aspx

    MattF,

     

    We can only answer your first question, because we don't have any details about your second question.

    Its simple - the copper works but the SFP doesn't. It could be a faulty port but I am asking if there are any other scenarios that would exhibit the same symptoms.

    What brand if SFP are you using?

    I believe it was a HP.

    Please check the link to the installation guide above. Not all SFPs will work.

    If that is the case I would not expect it to work in either of them.

    MattF,

    This had nothing to do with logic, but everything to do with what has been tested to work.

    Does anyone else know a possible reason for this?

    MattF:

     

    This is from the installation guide below:  I am marking this thread solved. 

     

    You should get an Aruba-supported SFP and retest to see if the port is bad.

    MattF,

    To add, without more detail in terms of show command outputs, there is no explanation for why the optic would work in one port and not the other.

     

    As Cjoseph has said, we only officially support and warranty our own optics will work in all cases in all ports of our products so without more to go on, that is the best we can go with at this point.

     

    Best regards,
