OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Product Overview
The Catalyst 2960 switch—also referred to as the switch—is an Ethernet switch to which you can
connect devices such as workstations, Cisco Wireless Access Points, Cisco IP Phones, and other network
devices including servers, routers, and other switches. This chapter provides a functional overview of
the Catalyst 2960 switch. These topics are included:
•
Features, page 1-1
•
Front Panel Description, page 1-3
•
Rear Panel Description, page 1-17
•
Management Options, page 1-20
Features
You can deploy the 24- and 48-port Catalyst 2960 switches as backbone switches, aggregating
10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T Ethernet traffic from other network devices. The 8-port
Catalyst 2960 compact switches provide the same Ethernet connectivity, but you can deploy these
switches outside of the traditional wiring closet environment, such as in office workspaces and
classrooms. See the switch software configuration guide for deployment examples.
Table 1-1 describes the switch model features.

Description
The Catalyst 2960-8TC-L, Catalyst 2960G-8TC-L, and Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L switches are smaller
than the other Catalyst 2960 switches. They can be mounted with a magnet, have security lock slots, and
do not have a fan. See Chapter 3, “Switch Installation (8-Port Switches),” for more information.
The Catalyst 2960-24PC-L and Catalyst 2960-24LT-L PoE switches comply with Cisco prestandard PoE
and IEEE 802.3af.
The switches support these SFP modules:
•
1000BASE-CWDM
•
1000BASE-BX
•
1000BASE-LX/LH
•
1000BASE-SX
•
1000BASE-T
•
1000BASE-ZX
•
100BASE-BX
•
100BASE-FX
•
100BASE-LX
The Catalyst 2960-24TC-S and Catalyst 2960-48TC-S switches support only 1000BASE-LX/LH,
1000BASE-SX, and 100BASE-FX SFP modules.
For specific information about which SFP modules are supported on specific switches, see the Cisco
Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix at this Cisco.com URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/
OL_6981.html
The 1000BASE-T SFP modules can operate at 10, 100, or 1000 Mb/s in full-duplex mode or at
10 or 100 Mb/s in half-duplex mode when you install them in Catalyst 2960 switches. The 10/100 and
10/100/1000 ports autonegotiate speed and support full-duplex or half-duplex mode.

Product Overview
Front Panel Description
The Catalyst 2960-8TC-L and Catalyst 2960G-8TC-L switches do not support the 1000BASE-T or
GLC-GE-100FX SFP modules.
Some Catalyst 2960 switches have a redundant power system (RPS) connector for an optional
Cisco RPS 2300 or Cisco RPS 675 redundant power system that operates on AC input and supplies
backup DC power to the switch. See the compatibility matrix documents for the RPS systems on
Cisco.com for more information about switch support for the RPS models.

The 10/100 ports on the Catalyst 2960-24TC-S and Catalyst 2960-48TC-S switches are numbered in the
same way as the Catalyst 2960-24T-S switch. These switches have dual-purpose ports, that is,
10/100/1000 ports 1 and 2 can use either the SFP module or the RJ-45 connector for that port, but not
both at the same time. Use the software to set the connector type for these ports. For more information
about the dual-purpose port, see the “Dual-Purpose Port” section on page 1-11. See Figure 1-2 and

10/100 Ports
You can set the 10/100 ports to operate at 10 or 100 Mb/s in full-duplex or half-duplex mode. You can
also set these ports for speed and duplex autonegotiation. The default setting is autonegotiate. When the
port is set to autonegotiate, it senses the speed and duplex settings of the attached device and advertises
its own capabilities. If the connected device also supports autonegotiation, the switch port negotiates the
best connection (that is, the fastest line speed that both devices support and full-duplex transmission if
the attached device supports it) and configures itself accordingly. In all cases, the attached device must
be within 328 feet (100 meters).
100BASE-TX traffic requires a Category 5 or higher cable. 10BASE-T traffic can use Category 3 or
Category 4 cables.
When you connect the switch to workstations, servers, routers, and Cisco IP Phones, be sure that the
cable is a straight-through cable. When you connect the switch to switches or hubs, use a crossover cable.
Pinouts for the cables are described in Appendix A, “Connector and Cable Specifications.”
Catalyst 2960 Switch Hardware Installation Guide

OL-7075-05
Chapter 1
Product Overview
Front Panel Description
You can use the mdix auto interface configuration command in the command-line interface (CLI) to
enable the auto-MDIX feature. When the auto-MDIX feature is enabled, the switch detects the required
cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the interfaces accordingly. Therefore, you can
use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for connections to a copper 10/100/1000 or
1000BASE-T SFP module port on the switch, regardless of the type of device on the other end of the
connection. For configuration information for this feature, see the switch software configuration guide
or the switch command reference.
10/100/1000 Ports
You can set the 10/100/1000 ports to operate at 10, 100, or 1000 Mb/s in full-duplex or half-duplex
mode. You can also set these ports for speed and duplex autonegotiation. (The default setting is
autonegotiate.) When you set the port for autonegotiation, it senses the speed and duplex settings of the
attached device and advertises its own capabilities. If the connected device also supports
autonegotiation, the switch port negotiates the best connection (that is, the fastest line speed that both
devices support and full-duplex transmission if the attached device supports it) and configures itself
accordingly. In all cases, the attached device must be within 328 feet (100 meters).
100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T traffic requires a Category 5 or higher cable. 10BASE-T traffic can use
Category 3 or Category 4 cables.
When you connect the switch to workstations, servers, routers, and Cisco IP Phones, be sure that the
cable is a straight-through cable. When you connect the switch to switches or hubs, use a crossover cable.
When using a straight-through or crossover cable for 1000BASE-T connections, be sure to use a twisted
four-pair, Category 5 or higher cable for proper operation. Pinouts for the cables are described in
Appendix A, “Connector and Cable Specifications.”
You can use the mdix auto interface configuration command in the CLI to enable the automatic
medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature. When the auto-MDIX feature is enabled,
the switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the interfaces
accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for connections to a
copper 10/100/1000 or 1000BASE-T SFP module port on the switch, regardless of the type of device on
the other end of the connection. For configuration information for this feature, see the switch software
configuration guide or the switch command reference.
PoE Ports
This section applies only to the Catalyst 2960-24PC-L and Catalyst 2960 24LT-L switches.
Warning
Voltages that present a shock hazard may exist on Power over Ethernet (PoE) circuits if
interconnections are made using uninsulated exposed metal contacts, conductors, or terminals.
Avoid using such interconnection methods, unless the exposed metal parts are located within a
restricted access location and users and service people who are authorized within the restricted
access location are made aware of the hazard. A restricted access area can be accessed only through
the use of a special tool, lock and key or other means of security. Statement 1072
The 10/100 ports on the Catalyst 2960-24PC-L and ports 1 to 8 of the 10/100 ports on the
Catalyst 2960-24LT-L switches provide PoE support for devices that are compliant with IEEE 802.3af.
The Cisco prestandard PoE is also supported for Cisco IP Phones and Cisco Aironet Access Points.
Each of the Catalyst 2960-24PC-L switch 10/100 ports and ports 1 to 8 on the Catalyst 2960-24LT-L
switch deliver 15.4 W of PoE.
Catalyst 2960 Switch Hardware Installation Guide
OL-7075-05

Chapter 1
Product Overview
Front Panel Description
On a per-port basis, you can control whether Catalyst 2960 PoE port automatically provides power when
you connect an IP phone or an access point. The device manager, Network Assistant, and the CLI provide
two PoE settings for each 10/100 PoE port: Auto and Never.
When you select the Auto setting, the port provides power only if a valid powered device, such as an
IEEE 802.3af-compliant powered device, a Cisco pre-standard IP phone, or a Cisco pre-standard Cisco
access point, is connected to it. The Auto setting is the default. However, when you select the Never
setting, the port does not provide power even if a Cisco IP phone or an access point is connected to it.
Cisco enhanced power negotiation allows some powered devices, such as the Cisco 7970G IP Phone, to
operate in high-power mode on Catalyst 2960 PoE switches. The powered device and the switch
negotiate through power-negotiation Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) messages for an agreed-upon
power-consumption level. The negotiation allows a high-power Cisco powered device that consumes
more than 7 W to operate at its highest power mode. The powered device first boots up in low-power
mode, consumes less than 7 W, and negotiates to obtain enough power to operate in high-power mode.
The device changes to high-power mode only when it receives confirmation from the switch. High-power
devices can operate in low-power mode on switches that do not support power-negotiation CDP.
For information about configuring and monitoring PoE ports, see the switch software
configuration guide.
You also can connect a Cisco IP Phone or Cisco Aironet Access Point to a Catalyst 2960 PoE switch
10/100 port and to an AC power source for redundant power. The powered device might switch to the
AC power source as its primary power source upon being connected to it. In that case, the PoE port
becomes the backup power source for the powered device.
If the primary source fails, the second power source becomes the primary power source to the powered
device. During the power transfer, an IP phone might reboot or reestablish link with the switch.
For information about Cisco IP Phones and Cisco Aironet Access Points, see the documentation that
came with your IP phone or access point.
Many legacy powered devices, including older Cisco IP phones and access points that do not fully
support IEEE 802.3af, might not support PoE when connected to the switches by a crossover cable.
SFP Module Slots
The Catalyst 2960 switches (other than those listed) use Gigabit Ethernet SFP modules for Gigabit
uplink connections and 100-Megabit SFP modules for 100-Megabit connections to establish fiber-optic
connections. These Catalyst 2960 switches do not have an SFP module slot:
•
Catalyst 2960-24LT-L
•
Catalyst 2960-24TT-L
•
Catalyst 2960-48TT-L
•
Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L
•
Catalyst 2960-24-S
The transceiver modules are field-replaceable, providing the uplink interfaces when you insert an
SFP module. You can use the SFP modules for Gigabit uplink connections to other switches. You use
fiber-optic cables with LC connectors to connect to a fiber-optic SFP module. You use Category 5 or
higher cable with RJ-45 connectors to connect to a copper SFP module.
For more information about these SFP modules, see your SFP module documentation or the release notes
for your switch software. For more information about cabling requirements, see Appendix A,
“Connector and Cable Specifications.”

Dual-Purpose Port
You can configure a dual-purpose port as either a 10/100/1000 port or as an SFP module port.
Only one port can be active at a time. If both ports are connected, the SFP module port has priority.
You cannot configure the priority setting.
You can set the 10/100/1000 ports to autonegotiate. You can also configure them as fixed 10, 100, or
1000 Mb/s (Gigabit) Ethernet ports. You can configure the duplex setting. See the software configuration
for more information.
Power Input Port (Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L Switch)
The Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L can receive power from these sources:
1.
Through a 10/100/1000 port from an upstream Ethernet switch that provides power (complies with
IEEE 802.3af). (See Figure 1-15.)
2.
Through an external AC power adapter that connects to the back of the switch. This external power
adapter (PWR-A=) is not included with the switch, but you can order it from your Cisco
representative. (See Figure 1-16.)

Dual-Purpose Port LEDs
The LEDs on a dual-purpose port show whether an RJ-45 connector is connected to the port, or if an SFP
module is installed in the slot. See the example in Figure 1-18. You can configure each port as either a
10/100/1000 port through the RJ-45 connector or as an SFP module, but not both at the same time. The
LEDs show how the port is being used (Ethernet or SFP module).
The LED colors have the same meanings as described in Table 1-4 and Table 1-5.

Power Supplies
All switches other than the Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L are powered through their internal power supply (see
“Power Input Port (Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L Switch)” section on page 1-11).
These sections describe the power connection options:
•
Internal Power Supply Connector, page 1-18
•
Cisco RPS Connectors, page 1-18
Internal Power Supply Connector
The internal power supply is an autoranging unit that supports input voltages between 100 and 240 VAC.
Use the supplied AC power cord to connect the AC power connector to an AC power outlet.
Cisco RPS Connectors
You can connect the Cisco RPS 2300 or the Cisco RPS 675 to provide backup power if the switch
internal power supply fails on those switches that have an RPS power connector.
Note
These Catalyst 2960 switches do not have an RPS connector: Catalyst 2960-8TC-L, 2960G-8TC-L,
2960PD-8TT-L, 2960-24-S, 2960-24TC-S, and 2960-48TC-S switches.
Connect the switch and the Cisco RPS 2300 or the Cisco RPS 675 to the same AC power source. See the
Cisco redundant power systems (RPS) compatibility matrix documents on Cisco.com for more
information about which RPS are supported on each of the Catalyst 2960 switches.
Use the supplied RPS connector cable to connect the RPS to the switch. For information about power
requirements for the remote power system that you are connecting, see the hardware installation guide

Hardware Installation Guide on Cisco.com.
Cisco RPS 2300 Connector
The Catalyst 2960-24PC-L and 2960-24LT-L switches support only the Cisco RPS 2300. This is a
redundant power system that can support six network switches and provide power to one or two failed
switches at a time. It automatically senses when the power supply of a connected switch fails and
provides power to the failed switch, preventing loss of network traffic.
The Cisco RPS 2300 has two output levels: –52 V and 12 V. The total maximum output power depends
on the installed power-supply modules.
The six ports on the RPS 2300 provide the power and management communication signals to the
Catalyst 2960 switches. The RPS 2300 communicates with the Catalyst 2960-24PC-L and
Catalyst 2960-24LT-L switches through the 22-pin cable (CAB-RPS2300-E=). All other Catalyst 2960
switches connect to the RPS 2300 through a 14-pin connector cable (CAB-RPS2300=).
All connected switches can simultaneously communicate with the RPS 2300. You can configure these
RPS 2300 features through the switch software:
•
Enable RPS active or standby mode for each connected switch
•
Configure switch priority for RPS support
•
List the connected switches and their power-supply module size
•
Obtain reports when a switch is powered by the RPS
•
Obtain status reports for the RPS power-supply module
•
Read and monitor backup, failure, and exception history
For more information about the RPS 2300, see the Cisco Redundant Power System 2300 Hardware
Installation Guide on Cisco.com at this location:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps7148/products_installation_guide_book09186a008075e608.html
Also see the switch software configuration guide on Cisco.com.
Console Port
You can connect the switch to a PC by means of the console port and the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 female
cable. If you want to connect the switch console port to a terminal, you need to provide an
RJ-45-to-DB-25 female DTE adapter. You can order a kit (part number ACS-DSBUASYN=) containing
that adapter from Cisco. For console port and adapter pinout information, see the “Connector and Cable
Specifications” section on page A-1.

Switch Installation (24- and 48-Port Switches)
Installing the Switch
Verifying Switch Operation
Before you install the switch in a rack, on a wall, or on a table or shelf, you should power on the switch
and verify that the switch passes POST.
If your configuration has an RPS, connect the switch and the RPS to the same AC power source. See
Chapter 3, “Switch Installation (8-Port Switches),” and see the Cisco RPS documentation for more
information.
Note
When you connect the RPS to the switch, put the RPS in standby mode. Set the RPS to active mode
during normal operation.
To power on the switch, connect one end of the AC power cord to the AC power connector on the switch,
and connect the other end of the power cord to an AC power outlet.
Warning
Attach only the following Cisco RPS model to the RPS receptacle:
PWR-RPS2300, PWR675-AC-RPS-N1=. Statement 370
As the switch powers on, it begins the POST, a series of tests that runs automatically to ensure that the
switch functions properly. LEDs can blink during the test. POST lasts approximately 1 minute. When
the switch begins POST, the System, RPS, Status, Duplex, and Speed LEDs turn green. The System LED
blinks green, and the other LEDs remain solid green.
When the POST completes successfully, the System LED remains green. The RPS LED remains green
for some time and then reflects the switch operating status. The other LEDs turn off and then reflect the
switch operating status. If a switch fails POST, the System LED turns amber.
POST failures are usually fatal. Call Cisco technical support representative if your switch fails POST.
After a successful POST, disconnect the power cord from the switch. Install the switch in a rack, on a
wall, on a table, or on a shelf as described in the “Installing the Switch” section on page 2-7.

The switch 10/100/1000 ports configure themselves to operate at the speed of attached devices. If the
attached ports do not support autonegotiation, you can explicitly set the speed and duplex parameters.
Connecting devices that do not autonegotiate or that have their speed and duplex parameters manually
set can reduce performance or result in no linkage.
To maximize performance, choose one of these methods for configuring the Ethernet ports:
•
Let the ports autonegotiate both speed and duplex.
•
Set the port speed and duplex parameters on both ends of the connection.
Follow these steps to connect to 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T devices:
Caution
To prevent electrostatic-discharge (ESD) damage, follow your normal board and component handling
procedures.
Step 1
When connecting to workstations, servers, routers, and Cisco IP Phones, connect a straight-through
cable to an RJ-45 connector on the front panel. (See Figure 2-16.) When connecting to switches or
repeaters, use a crossover cable. (See the “Cable and Adapter Specifications” section on page A-4 for
cable-pinout descriptions.)
When you connect to 1000BASE-T-compatible devices, be sure to use a twisted four-pair, Category 5 or
higher cable.

to provide easier access to the cables.
•
Clearance to the switch front and rear panels meets these conditions
– You can easily read the front-panel indicators.
– Access to ports is sufficient for unrestricted cabling.
– The AC power cord can reach from the AC power outlet to the connector on the switch
rear panel.
•
Cabling is away from sources of electrical noise, such as radios, power lines, and fluorescent
lighting fixtures. Make sure the cabling is safely away from other devices that might damage the
cables.
•
For 10/100/1000 ports, cable lengths from the switch to connected devices must be 328 feet
(100 meters).
•
The cables meet the specifications in Table A-1 on page A-5, which lists the cable specifications for
1000BASE-X and 100BASE-X small form-factor (SFP) modules available for the Catalyst 2960
switch.
When you use shorter lengths of single-mode fiber-optic cable, you might need to insert an inline
optical attenuator in the link to avoid overloading the receiver.
When the fiber-optic cable span is less than 15.43 miles (25 km), you should insert a 5-decibel (dB)
or 10-dB inline optical attenuator between the fiber-optic cable plant and the receiving port on the
1000BASE-ZX SFP module at each end of the link.

Switch Installation (8-Port Switches)
Preparing for Installation
You can order an optional cable guard to secure cables to the front of the switch and prevent them from
being accidentally removed. To order a cable guard, contact your Cisco representative and use these part
numbers:
•
Catalyst 2960-8TC-L and 2960PD-8TT-L switches cable guard part number:
CBLGRD-C2960-8TC=
•
Catalyst 2960G-8TC-L switch cable guard part number: CBLGRD-C2960G-8TC=
The cable guard is a different part than the cable guide, which you can use to manage a large number
of cables in a rack on switches other than the Catalyst 2960-8TC-L and Catalyst 2960G-8TC-L
switches.
The switch has security slots in the left and right side panels. You can install an optional cable lock, such
as the type that is used to secure a laptop computer, to secure either or both sides of the switch. Cable
locks are available from most computer accessory suppliers.
Installing the Catalyst 2960 8-port switches in a 19-inch rack requires an optional bracket kit that is not
included with the switch. You can order a kit containing the 19-inch rack-mounting brackets and
hardware from Cisco. The kit part number is RCKMNT-19-CMPCT=.
If you want to connect a terminal to the switch console port, you need to provide an RJ-45-to-DB-25
female DTE adapter. You can order a kit (part number ACS-DSBUASYN=) with that adapter from Cisco.

Switch Installation (8-Port Switches)
Verifying Switch Operation
Verifying Switch Operation
Before installing the switch in a rack, or on a desk, a shelf, or a wall, you should power on the switch
and verify that it passes POST.
To power on the switch, connect one end of the AC power cord to the AC power connector on the switch,
and connect the other end of the power cord to an AC power outlet.
You can power the Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L switch through a 10/100/1000 uplink port, which can receive
power from an upstream PoE switch. You can also connect the switch to an AC power adapter on the rear
panel. See the “Power Input Port (Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L Switch)” section on page 1-11 for more
information.
As the switch powers on, it begins the POST, a series of tests that runs automatically to ensure that the
switch functions properly. LEDs can blink during the test. POST lasts approximately 1 minute. When
the switch begins POST, the System, Status, Duplex, and Speed LEDs turn green. The System LED
blinks green, and the other LEDs remain solid green.
When the POST completes successfully, the System LED remains green. The other LEDs turn off and
then reflect the switch operating status. If a switch fails POST, the System LED turns amber.
POST failures are usually fatal. Call Cisco technical support representative if your switch fails POST.
After a successful POST, disconnect the power cord from the switch. Install the switch in a rack, or on
a desk, a shelf, or a wall, as described in the “Installing the Switch” section on page 3-6.

Where to Go Next
Where to Go Next
If the default configuration is satisfactory, the switch needs no further configuration. You can use any of
these management options to change the default configuration:
•
Start the device manager, which is in the switch memory, to manage individual and standalone
switches. The device manager is a web interface that offers quick configuration and monitoring.
You can access the device manager from anywhere in your network through a web browser.
For more information, see the device manager online help.
•
Start the Network Assistant application, which is described in the Getting Started with Cisco
Network Assistant guide. Through this GUI, you can configure and monitor a switch cluster or an
individual switch.
•
Use the CLI from the console to configure the switch as a member of a cluster or as an individual
switch. See the Catalyst 2960 Switch Software Configuration Guide and the Catalyst 2960 Switch

failures, port-connectivity problems, and overall switch performance. You can also get statistics from the
CLI or from an SNMP workstation. See the software configuration guide and the switch command
reference on Cisco.com or the documentation that came with your SNMP application for more
information.

Diagnosing Problems
Verify Switch POST Results
As the switch powers on, it begins the POST, a series of tests that runs automatically to ensure that the
switch functions properly. It might take several minutes for the switch to complete POST.
When the switch begins POST, the system LED slowly blinks green. When POST completes, the system
LED blinks amber. If POST fails, the system LED remains amber. If POST completes successfully, the
system LED rapidly blinks green.
Note
POST failures are usually fatal. Contact your Cisco technical support representative if your switch does
not pass POST.
Monitor Switch LEDs
You must have physical access to the switch to do this. Look at the port LEDs for troubleshooting
information about the switch. See the “LEDs” section on page 1-12 for a description of the LED colors
and their meanings.
Verify Switch Connections

Bad or Damaged Cable
Always look at the cable for marginal damage or failure. A cable might connect at the physical layer but
then cause packet corruption because of subtle damage to its wiring or connectors. You can identify this
situation because the port will have many packet errors, or the port constantly loses and regains link. In
these situations:
•
Change the copper or fiber-optic cable with a known, good cable if necessary.
•
Look for broken or missing pins on cable connectors.
•
Rule out any insufficient patch panel connections or media convertors between the source and the
destination. If possible, bypass the patch panel or eliminate faulty media convertors, such as
fiber-optic-to-copper convertors.
•
Try using the cable in another port or interface to see if the problem also exists there.

Troubleshooting
Diagnosing Problems
Ethernet and Fiber Cables
Make sure that you have the correct cable type for the connection:
•
For Ethernet, use Category 3 copper cable for 10 Mb/s unshielded twisted pair (UTP) connections.
Use either Category 5, Category 5e, or Category 6 UTP for 10/100 or 10/100/1000 Mb/s
connections.
•
For fiber-optic connectors, verify that you have the correct cable for the distance and port type.
Make sure that the ports on the connected device match and that they use the same type of encoding,
optical frequency, and fiber type. For more information about cabling, see Appendix A, “Connector
and Cable Specifications.”
•
For copper connections, determine if a crossover cable was used when a straight-through cable was
required or the reverse. Enable auto-MDIX on the switch, or replace the cable.
Link Status
Verify that both sides have link. A single broken wire or one shutdown port can cause one side to show
link, but the other side does not have link.
A link LED does not guarantee that the cable is fully functional. The cable might have encountered
physical stress that causes it to function at a marginal level. If the link light for the port does not come on:
•
Connect the cable from the switch to a known, good device.
•
Make sure that both ends of the cable are connected to the correct ports.
•
Verify that both devices have power.
•
Verify that you are using the correct cable type. See Appendix A, “Connector and Cable
Specifications.” for more information.
•
Look for loose connections. Sometimes a cable appears to be seated, but is not. Disconnect and then
reconnect the cable.
Transceiver Module Port Issues
Use only Cisco small form-factor (SFP) modules on the switch. Each Cisco module has an internal serial
EEPROM that is encoded with security information. This encoding provides a way for Cisco to identify
and validate that the module meets the requirements for the switch. Look for these items:
•
Bad or incorrect SFP module. Exchange the suspect module with a known, good module. Verify that
this module supports this platform. See the “Features” section on page 1-1 for a list of supported
SFP modules.
•
Use the show interfaces privileged EXEC command to verify the port or module error-disabled,
disabled, or shutdown status. Re-enable the port if necessary.
•
Make sure that all you have properly cleaned and securely connected all fiber-optic connections.
Port and Interface Settings
An obvious but sometimes overlooked cause of port connectivity failure is a disabled port. Verify that
the port or interface is not disabled or for some reason powered off. If a port or interface is manually
shut down on one or the other side of the link, the link does not come up until you re-enable the port.

Chapter 4
Troubleshooting
Diagnosing Problems
Use the show interfaces privileged EXEC command to verify the port or interface error-disabled,
disabled, or shutdown status on both sides of the connection. If necessary, re-enable the port or the
interface.
Ping the End Device
Verify the end device connection by first pinging it from the directly connected switch, and then work
your way back port by port, interface by interface, trunk by trunk, until you find the source of the
connectivity issue. Make sure that each switch can identify the end device MAC address in its
Content-Addressable Memory (CAM) table.
Spanning Tree Loops
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) loops can cause serious performance issues that might appear to be port
or interface problems. In this situation, the switch bandwidth is used repeatedly by the same frames,
crowding out legitimate traffic.
A unidirectional link can cause loops. This occurs when the traffic that the switch sends is received by
its neighbor, but the switch does not receive the traffic that is sent from the neighbor. A broken
fiber-optic cable, other cabling, or a port issue could cause this one-way communication.
You can enable the UniDirectional Link Detection (UDLD) protocol on the switch to help identify
difficult-to-find unidirectional link problems. UDLD supports a normal mode of operation (the default)
and an aggressive mode. In normal mode, UDLD detects unidirectional links because of incorrectly
connected interfaces on fiber-optic connections. In aggressive mode, UDLD also detects unidirectional
links caused by one-way traffic on fiber-optic and twisted-pair links and by incorrectly connected
interfaces on fiber-optic links. For information about enabling UDLD on the switch, see the
“Understanding UDLD” section in the software configuration guide.
Monitor Switch Performance
Review these sections when you troubleshoot switch performance problems:
•
Speed, Duplex, and Autonegotiation, page 4-4
•
Autonegotiation and NIC Cards, page 4-5
•
Cabling Distance, page 4-5
Speed, Duplex, and Autonegotiation
If the port statistics show a large number of alignment errors, frame check sequence (FCS), or
late-collisions errors, a speed or duplex mismatch might be the problem.
A common issue with speed and duplex occurs when the duplex settings are mismatched between two
switches, between a switch and a router, or between the switch and a workstation or server. This can
happen when you manually set the speed and duplex or because of autonegotiation issues between the
two devices.
These circumstances can result in a mismatch:
•
A manually set speed or duplex parameter is different from the manually set speed or duplex
parameter on the connected port.
•
A port is set to autonegotiate, and the connected port is set to full duplex with no autonegotiation.

Chapter 4
Troubleshooting
Clearing the Switch IP Address and Configuration
To maximize switch performance and to ensure a link, follow one of these guidelines when you set or
change the settings for duplex and speed:
•
Let both ports autonegotiate both speed and duplex.
•
Manually set the speed and duplex parameters for the ports on both ends of the connection.
•
If a remote device does not autonegotiate, configure the duplex settings on the two ports to match.
The speed parameter can adjust itself even if the connected port does not autonegotiate.
Autonegotiation and NIC Cards
Problems sometimes occur between the switch and third-party network interface cards (NICs). By
default, the switch ports and interfaces are set to autonegotiate. It is common for devices such as laptop
computers or other devices to also be set to autonegotiate, yet sometimes autonegotiation issues occur.
To troubleshoot autonegotiation problems, try to manually set both sides of the connection. If this does
not solve the problem, the firmware or software on your NIC card might be causing the problem.
Upgrade the NIC card driver to the latest version available from the manufacturer.
Cabling Distance
If the port statistics show excessive FCS, late-collision, or alignment errors, verify that the cable distance
from the switch to the connected device meets the recommended guidelines. See the Appendix A, “Cable
and Adapter Specifications.” for cabling guidelines.
Clearing the Switch IP Address and Configuration
If you have configured a new switch with an incorrect IP address, you can clear the IP address that is
configured on the switch.
Caution
This procedure clears the IP address and all configuration information that is stored on the switch. Do
not follow this procedure unless you want to completely reconfigure the switch.
Follow these steps to return your switch to the factory default settings:
1.
Press and hold the Mode button (see Figure 1-17 on page 1-13).
The switch LEDs begin blinking after about 2 seconds. If the switch is not configured, the LEDs
above the mode button turn green. You can omit this step and run Express Setup to configure the
switch.
2.
Continue holding down the Mode button. The LEDs stop blinking after an additional 8 seconds, and
then the switch reboots.
The switch now behaves like an unconfigured switch. You can configure the switch by using Express
Setup as described in the switch getting started guide that is included with the switch.
You can also configure the switch by using the CLI setup procedure described in Appendix C,
“Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based Setup Program.”

1. Modal bandwidth applies only to multimode fiber.
2. A mode-field diameter/cladding diameter = 9 micrometers/125 micrometers
3. A mode-conditioning patch cord is required. Using an ordinary patch cord with MMF, 1000BASE-LX/LH SFP modules, and a short link distance
can cause transceiver saturation, resulting in an elevated bit error rate (BER). When using the LX/LH SFP module with 62.5-micron diameter MMF,
you must also install a mode-conditioning patch cord between the SFP module and the MMF cable on both the sending and receiving ends of the
link. The mode-conditioning patch cord is required for link distances greater than 984 feet (300 m).
4. 1000BASE-ZX SFP modules can send data up to 62 miles (100 km) by using dispersion-shifted SMF or low-attenuation SMF; the distance depends
on the fiber quality, the number of splices, and the connectors.

Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based Setup
Program
This appendix provides a command-line interface (CLI)-based setup procedure for a standalone switch.
For product overview information, see Chapter 1, “Product Overview.”
Before you connect the switch to a power source, review the safety warnings in Chapter 2, “Switch
Installation (24- and 48-Port Switches),” and Chapter 3, “Switch Installation (8-Port Switches).”
For installation procedures for mounting your switch, connecting to the switch ports, or connecting to
the small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules, see Chapter 2, “Switch Installation (24- and 48-Port
Switches),” and Chapter 3, “Switch Installation (8-Port Switches).”
These steps describe how to do an installation:
1.
Accessing the CLI, page C-1
2.
Connecting to the Console Port, page C-2
3.
Starting the Terminal Emulation Software, page C-3
4.
Connecting to a Power Source, page C-4
5.
Entering the Initial Configuration Information, page C-4
Accessing the CLI
For an unconfigured switch, you can access the CLI through Express Setup or through the console port.
Accessing the CLI Through Express Setup
You can access the CLI on an unconfigured switch by placing the switch in Express Setup mode and then
connecting an Ethernet port of the switch to the Ethernet port of your PC or workstation. To put the
switch into Express Setup mode, follow the steps described in the Catalyst 2960 Switch Getting Started
Guide for powering on the switch and using Express Setup.
After the switch is in Express Setup mode, open a Telnet session to the switch by using the IP address
10.0.0.1. Enter the setup user EXEC command. See these sections in this chapter to configure the switch
by using the CLI:
•
Entering the Initial Configuration Information, page C-4
•
Completing the Setup Program, page C-5
Catalyst 2960 Switch Hardware Installation Guide
OL-7075-05
C-1
Appendix C
Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based Setup Program
Connecting to the Console Port
After you have entered the configuration information for the switch, save it to flash memory by using
the write memory privileged EXEC command.
Note
While in Express Setup mode, the IP address 10.0.0.1 remains active on the switch until you enter the
write memory command. You lose the Telnet connection after entering the write memory command.
For more information about using the CLI, refer to the command reference for this release.
Accessing the CLI Through the Console Port
You can access the CLI on a configured or unconfigured switch by connecting the console port of the
switch to the serial port on your PC or workstation and accessing the switch through a Telnet session.
To access the switch through the console port, follow these steps:
•
Connecting to the Console Port, page C-2
•
Starting the Terminal Emulation Software, page C-3
•
Connecting to a Power Source, page C-4
•
Entering the Initial Configuration Information, page C-4
See the “Verifying Package Contents” section on page 2-6 for a list of what ships with your switch.
Note
You need to provide the Category 5 or higher straight-through cables to connect the switch ports to other
Ethernet devices.
Note
The auto-MDIX feature is enabled by default. For configuration information for this feature, see the
switch software configuration guide or the switch command reference.
Connecting to the Console Port
You can use the console port to perform the initial configuration. To connect the switch console port to
a PC, use the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable.
Follow these steps to connect the PC or terminal to the switch:
Step 1
Using the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable, insert the RJ-45 connector into the console port on the
rear of a switch, as shown in Figure C-1.

Step 2
Attach the DB-9 female DTE of the adapter cable to a PC serial port, or attach an appropriate adapter to
the terminal.
Starting the Terminal Emulation Software
Before you power on the switch, start the terminal emulation session so that you can see the output
display from the power-on self-test (POST). The terminal-emulation software—frequently a PC
application such as Hyperterminal or Procomm Plus—makes communication between the switch and
your PC or terminal possible.
Step 1
Start the terminal-emulation program and open a session if you are using a PC or terminal.
Step 2
Start a terminal-emulation session.
Step 3
Configure the baud rate and character format of the PC or terminal to match these console port default
characteristics:
•
9600 baud
•
8 data bits
•
1 stop bit
•
No parity
•
None (flow control)

Connecting to a Power Source
Connecting to a Power Source
Follow these steps to connect to a power source:
Step 1
Connect one end of the supplied AC power cord to the power connector on a switch rear panel. See
Figure C-1.
Step 2
Connect the other end of the power cable to a grounded AC outlet.
Note
If you are connecting the switch to a Cisco redundant power system (RPS), refer to the
documentation that shipped with your RPS.
As the switch powers on, it begins the power-on self test (POST), a series of tests that runs automatically
to ensure that the switch functions properly. POST lasts approximately 1 minute. When the switch begins
POST, the System, RPS, Status, Duplex, and Speed LEDs turn green. The System LED blinks green, and
the other LEDs remain solid green.
When the POST completes successfully, the System LED remains green. The RPS LED remains green
for some time and then reflects the switch operating status. The other LEDs turn off and then reflect the
switch operating status. If a switch fails POST, the System LED turns amber.
POST failures are usually fatal. Call Cisco technical support representative if your switch fails POST.
If you started the terminal emulation program before you powered on your switch, the PC or terminal
displays the bootloader sequence. You need to press Enter to display the setup program prompt.
Entering the Initial Configuration Information
To set up the switch, you need to complete the setup program, which runs automatically after the switch
is powered up. You must assign an IP address and other configuration information necessary for the
switch to communicate with the local routers and the Internet. This information is also required if you
plan to use the Network Assistant to configure and manage the switch.
IP Settings
You need this information from your network administrator before you complete the setup program:
•
Switch IP address
•
Subnet mask (IP netmask)
•
Default gateway (router)
•
Enable secret password
•
Enable password
•
Telnet password
