MLX - 10GigabitEthernet4/6 is down(remote fault)

Postby admin » Wed Feb 27, 2013 10:49 am

I found the following error while troubleshooting a connection issue for a server when issuing the show interface command

10GigabitEthernet4/6 is down(remote fault), line protocol is down

I couldn't find anything that stated what (remote fault) specifically indicated. The problem was a bad fiber jumper. After replacing the fiber jumper the link came up. The bad strand was the one sending the light from the switch to the server.

If you get this error and have a different cause/fix, please reply to this post with your solution!!
