I have this error on a Cisco router running IOS version 12.2.
This coincide with an error received on our alarming system saying that on this router we have an interface with "line protocol down". The interface seems to be admin down, but I don't know why.
Are these 2 issues related? I don't see any other alarm at that time on the router.
Can an interface be admin down without someone doing
shutdown command on the interface?
