I started configuring an Arista 7150 switch:  I created two VLANs (VLAN 10 and VLAN 20) and assigned the front panel ports to the two VLANs (ports 1-12 assigned  to VLAN 10, ports 13-24 assigned to VLAN 20).  The VLANs are active, but none of the ports seem to be enabled (even though when I run the command to see the configured ports for each VLAN, all if the ports show up in the output).

I attempted to run ‘no shutdown’ for each port in order to enable the interfaces, with no luck (although I was able to confirm that using ‘shutdown’ will administratively shut down the ports).

The interface status command list the ports’ SFP modules correctly, but the interfaces show up as not connected.

The interfaces are enabled by default. If the interfaces show as not connected, you might have a problem with your physical connectivity. Check the fibres (Rx/Tx).
