MS250 Fiber SFP+

Fiber newbie here - 

 

Just had fiber run between our MDF and IDF - Installed Proline SFP 10GB SR but not getting any connectivity between two MS250 switches (Port49). 

 

 

Any special port configuration I am missing?

To clarify what @jdsilva is saying - you have two fiber strands, flip them (on the fiber patch panel likely) so they're opposite what they are now. It's likely that you have TX going to TX and RX going to RX right now instead of TX to RX.

What he said 🙂

Thanks guys - I am in Kentucky and the fiber is in Michigan. I'll have a team member on-site tomorrow to take a look.

 

Thanks for the quick replies.

Is this using a fibre run?  Is the fibre run multi-mode using OM3 or OM4 fibre?

I should also point out that depending if its a hardware issue support might not help as you are not using Cisco SFP modules. 

 

Good luck and hopefully its something as simple as whoever terminated the fibres mixed up a pair.

It is OM3.

Also it looks like that SFP is designed for multi mode fiber.  Are you sure that is what is running between your MDF and IDF?  Is it possibly single mode?
