  • 1.  EX3400 link mode half duplex

    Posted 03-11-2020 12:06

    Hi,

    We have EX3400 with JUNOS 18.2R3-S1.7 vesion virtual chassis configuation.

    on port ge-1/0/12 i saw that port link mode is half duplex. i tried to hard core full duplex and commit the config but still its showing link mode half duplex. please suggest how can i configure full duplex. Their is no ethernet cable connected on interface.

     

    --> switch1# set interfaces ge-1/0/12 link-mode full-duplex

     

    switch1#show interfaces ge-1/0/12
    Physical interface: ge-1/0/12, Enabled, Physical link is Down
    Interface index: 814, SNMP ifIndex: 630
    Link-level type: Ethernet, MTU: 1514, LAN-PHY mode, Link-mode: Half-duplex, Speed: 100mbps, Duplex: Full-Duplex, BPDU Error: None, Loop Detect PDU Error: None,
    Ethernet-Switching Error: None, MAC-REWRITE Error: None, Loopback: Disabled, Source filtering: Disabled, Flow control: Disabled, Auto-negotiation: Enabled,

    Hi Target, 

     

    I hope you are doing great!

     

    One question if you connect a computer on the port, does it continue working at 100mb half duplex?

     

    Pablo.

    Hi Target .

     

    I hope you're doing well.


    It is working as per chipset design for this platform, in which the default value is 0
    which maps to half-duplex when the interface is down, once you have a physical link, it should change to full-duplex


    If this solves your problem, please mark this post as "Accepted Solution" so we can help others too.


    Regards

    @Target and others - Just FYI but today, EX3400 does not actually support 10/100 HDX, only FDX.  HDX support is coming in a soon to be released SW version.  I know 18.2R3-S3 will/should include this support.  This SW release is due out early April, I believe.

     

    Again FYI Only.

    Hello Target,

     

    This is normal behavior, it will show up properly as full duplex once you connect the link.

     

    By default Junos shows interfaces that appear down as half-duplex. I'll try to find a kb and post it, but this is just because when the interface is shown DOWN the duplex setting will apear as half.

     

    I have handy an EX4300, look at the samples.. for an interface up the duplex shows full, while the other half duplex, i can confirm that both interfaces have the same configuration

     

    Model: ex4300-24p
    Junos: 18.1R3.3

    Hi Target,

     

    Has this changed to full-duplex when you connected the host to the port?

     

    Thanks,

    Deimos.
