    Resource not available - cross connect

    john_in_nc New Member

      I had loaded a config to a 3430 and noticed the cross-connect would not take for the frame relay.

       

      I tried to enter the crossconnect t1 1/1 1 Frame-relay 1 and it says resource not available. I tried to enter it in both global config and interface config.

       

      T1 shows present

      interface frame-relays are there

       

      I removed al frame-relay reference and shut no shut , downgrade reboot , loaded another config, reseated card, rebooted, reloaded configs, we still could not get cross connect to take.

       

      I also noticed that I am not able to console to the unit, it receives debugs and messages from the router but I am not able to type anything back up to it.

       

      Side note: We had to give the customer a loaner since I haven't been able to reach Adtran tech support in over 24 hrs for this problem.

       

      Not sure what is going on over there but I can no longer recommend Adtran products if we cannot reach tech support.

          Can you post the configuration here so we can have a look at it?

            Did you create a TDM-group for the T1 first?

             

            interface t1 1/1

              tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64


            If so, verify that it isn't already connected elsewhere.

                Yes, but I could not create a cross connect within either the fr 1 point-to-point or global config.

                I was trying to enter cross-connect 1 t1 1/1 1 frame-relay 1

                But it said resources not available.

                 

                MY ONLY OPTION was to create interface Fr2 point-to-point

                Set that with an lmi ansi

                And use cross-connect 1 t1 1/1 1 frame-relay 2

                 

                Do you know why would that be? I have done over a hundred of these but this time we had these issues.

                    The cross-connect commands seem to be kind of a hybrid between interface and global.  I haven't seen that issue before unless either the T1 or FR resource wasn't properly configured.

                     

                    Does "show connections" list anything tied to FR 1?

                        I loaded the configuration via GUI from a working unit with only changes to the DLCI and but cross connects would not take.

                         

                        Had to use FR 2 instead of the typical FR1

                         

                        We got the customer up and running on the new config so going to move on. I think there were other issues with the unit,  we ended up RMA’ing it because the serial port was not functioning either.

                        Thanks for your help
