I am a technician trying to venture forth beyond Desktop troubleshooting and into networking issues.
The company I do IT work for has around a dozen cubicles that each have 2 data ports, which are not labeled accept for the 'D1 and D2' labels letting you know that they are data ports.
I tried to setup a laptop in one of the cubicles and the D2 port was not active, only D1. I went to each cube and found only 3 cubicles had the second data port active.
In their server room, nothing is labeled (I should say, this company had a different IT company providing support for them, then we picked them up, so we did not set them up without labeling anything in their server room).
Anyway, there are 3 switches and I am not sure which switch port is associated with what data port in on their main floor.
Other than tracing cables, which would be a full day project since this company is huge and cables run everywhere, is there a way I can identify which switch port goes to what data port for each cube?
