A Rare Thing From The Provider
Yesterday, I had to go install an ICX7450 switch that acted as a gateway across an MPLS network. Oddly, my WAN interface did not come up. It was down/down. I thought maybe the provider didn't provision the cienna box correctly, so I called them up. It turns out that they did provision it correctly, but that the biscuit jack handoff was the issue. My curiosity got the best of me. Not sure if you can notice in the second picture, but the orange cable isn't punched down all the way, which caused the issue. However, I didn't bother with it. I just plugged straight into the cienna.
