Logged on to the switch (Cisco IOS) I issue a "show ip inteface brief" and I get this information:
GigabitEthernet0/1 unassigned YES unset up up GigabitEthernet0/2 unassigned YES unset down down GigabitEthernet0/3 unassigned YES unset up up GigabitEthernet0/4 unassigned YES unset downdown GigabitEthernet0/5 unassigned YES unset up up
I then in NNM issues a Configuration Poll and then a Status Poll and get this:
The issue is on the status poll, the column "IfAdminStatus" (first column). This shows 1(Up) and this is correct because the command "sh ip int brie" shows Admin status as Up. I see it says down, but admin status is up. If Admin status was down it would say "Administratively Down".
No apologies necessary. That’s what we are here for; to help each other. I can't tell you how many times I've over-looked stuff. We work with these products every day and at times get really close to it. Sometimes we need a second or third set of eyes to show us what's going on. We are all in the same boat.
P.S. Don't forget to close the thread if the Admin status problem was solved. Also, if you still are stumped about the unmanaged ports, post another question.
