I remember that it sometimes took up to 20 minutes for that setting to apply. You are logged into the GUI with Admin rights, yes?
Hi, I know this is a old post but, Did you every get the link to go down? Thanks
I just tested in our lab and I was able to get the link down.
So do we have to shut this link down on both switches or just one? If just one does it matter which one? Thanks for the reply.
You only need to do it on either switch. It is not required to make the changes in both of the switches.
When we do this one of the servers lose connection. Is there any kind of best practice to follow when you have two switches as far as setting up the external ports and which one should be cabled to our network switch? We currently have two switches in the device and two servers. We have setup the unit with Admin link up and down, a cable running to our network switch from both modular switches and have tried only from SWM1. In ever configuration SWM1 goes down at least once or twice a day. Is there something we are missing? Thanks again for the help.
It always depends on the configuration that you want to have. You may just have one cable from one of the switches to your external switch.
I would like to share some useful links in relation to the Ethernet Switch Module.

I believe that you have seen most of the information listed on these documents but I wanted you to have them handy just in case.
Do the logs of the unit provide any details when this occurs?
I would recommend contacting our Customer Support Group for further investigation of this issue.
