Speed Negotiation

Hi Team,

I am using x670-48t switches and all of the ports available are of 1G/10G speed.But the device with which I want to connect has a port of speed 100 mbps.

When I am trying to downgrade the port speed to 100 mbps using command :
configure ports 21 auto on speed 100 duplex full or
configure ports 21 auto off speed 1000 duplex full

It throws an error mentioning the port does not support 100 Mbps.

Is there any way by which I can downgrade the port speed to 100 Mbps.

With Regards,
Kalyan Brata Majumder.

In addition to the EXOS Release, please share the output of "show port 21 configuration no-refresh".
