Command rejected: An interface whose trunk encapsulation is "Auto" can not be co nfigured to "trunk" mode.

This error is returned by Cisco IOS, when the trunking encapsulation is not set on one side of the switch and the other hand switch is configured properly. One of the case may be, when trunking between the port of a switch on one side and port of Switch-type interface on the router on other side. As you know that Dynamic Trunking Protocol, DTP, is not run by the Router so the Trunking can not be negotiated at this situation. To mitigate the error at this situation do the following steps;


networkpcworld(config-if)#switchport mode trunk 
Command rejected: An interface whose trunk encapsulation is "Auto" can not be configured to "trunk" mode. 


Go to the desired Interface where you are getting this error
networkpcworld(config)#int fa0/0/1


Enable trunk ecnapsulation manually 
networkpcworld(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
Note:- After setting encapsulation, most probably the switch interface would be converted to trunk by switchport mode trunk command. If not then enter the below command, at the same interface. 


Set the port to dynamic Desirable

What is Cisco Supervisor Engine?

Supervisor Engine is a module that is installed in the Cisco Chassis-based Catalyst Switches or Routers. Supervisor engine contains nearly all the same components of a fixed Cisco Switches or Routers. These Supervisor engines come in a variety of different types with different functionalities and are installed in the Switches/Router Chassis as per requirements of the network types.

Benefits of Supervisor Engines
By installing Latest Supervisor Engines in your existing investments (Switches and Routers) you can scale system performance and integrate next-generation services into your Networks.
Within a single multilayer switch chassis, two supervisor modules with integrated route processors can be used to provide hardware redundancy. If an entire supervisor module fails, the other module can pick up the pieces and continue operating the switch.
The supervisor engine contains the following integrated daughter cards that perform forwarding and routing and provide the protocols supported …
