Pulling a cable is not always a fair test.  The electical signals may float, leaving the adapter thinking the cable is still in.
Do you get the same result if you go to the far end of the cable and shutdown the interface on that equipment?
Do you know if the type of lan card is supposed to detect cable outages?
Does 'netstat -in' show the interface as down (asterisk against interface name)?

Sorry to only give questions not answers, hope it helps.

>I try to manage an AIX server only by snmp but if someone remove the cable from one interface snmp agent doesn't change the if oper status to down. any comments?
