There is a way to search a specific thread: click the 'Search' box and select 'This Thread' from the combobox. Invaluable for digging through the "Brocade Mega Thread"!(Is there no way to search in a specific thread? I could not find!)
I'm not a network guru, but I think connecting a single cable between two ports on your switch creates a loop, with attendant bad juju. Do you have another switch or computer you can test with instead?Question: I'm trying to use a couple cisco DAC cables. When I plug a cable in to my 6450, even if i plug it into two ports, i get a message "optics inserted, wait for PHY initialization", and nothing else happens.
Should I be able to loop 1/2/2 and 1/2/3 for testing, at least to get a link?
