    we were installing a switch last night and after it's racked and the fiber is patched, the interface on the router won't come up. okay so the polarity might need to be swapped. we do that. still nothing.

    so my coworker goes around the back of the cabinet in the MDF and here's what he sees ...

    i had checked the panel in the IDF and saw 12 pairs, all connected. who the fuck runs twelve pairs of fiber, connects 3 and leaves the rest laying in the tray!!??1 :rant2:

    so i guess i get to finish this after the cabling vendor comes back out :uh:

    That sucks. I've seen that kind of shit countless times though. If the installer knows you won't use them at that moment, they won't do the extra.

    but that is just retarded. i mean, if they terminated all of them in the IDF, why not in the MDF? :mad:

    mmkay all is good. vendor connected all the rest of the fiber. the gbic's in the new switch turned out to be the wrong type, but once we replaced the ones in the new 3550 with some spares we were good to go :bigthumb:
