For starters, disable stp on the cisco switch. I have never used a black diamond before but i would like to think the commands are similar with the Summit X450. Also are you able to show me the black diamond config?

Both Black Diamond and Summit X switches use EXOS. The biggest difference is that the chassis based switches always use <ModuleNumber>:<PortNumber>, while standalone Summit X switches use only <PortNumber> (and <SlotNumber>:<PortNumber> in stacking mode).

An unconfigured Cisco switch uses the old, slow STP algorithm. As a result it will take from 30s to 50s for a port to become active. During this time the port LED is amber.

You might want to check the Cisco's view of the port using "show interface <INTERFACE>".

It would be good to know what the Black Diamond has to say about the port as well:

show port configuration
show port info detail
