Clear Layer 2 connection

Running 10.20 on Linux.  There is a layer 2 connection between two switches that has been removed.  The nodes show the interfaces down and I can't clear the connection out of the interfaces on each switch to bring the nodes back to normal status.  I've tried shutting down the interfaces and running configuration polls.  We don't have any forced polling setup so I'm not sure why the connection won't clear.

Thanks!

Re: Clear Layer 2 connection

Jeff,

  The problem here is that connections tend to persist.   I would suggest using the connection editor and you should be able to configure it to remove the now non existent connection.  Once removed it should not come back.   Check out the online reference page for the command ( nnmconnedit.ovpl ) and the config file to provide to it.

  Good luck

Dave Y

Re: Clear Layer 2 connection

Thank you Dave.  I tried that method, and the connections kept coming back.  For some reason the nodes themselves seemed to 'buggerd' so I took the extreme measure to delete and recreate the nodes.
