You should run the trunk directly into the DEMPR.

If a segment becomes unterminated, the DEMPR will isolate it
automatically and turn on the indicator light. If the light is off, the
segment is fine. Unused ports will have the indicator on.

You should check this, but I think ;
 * The AUI uplink port does not need to be manually enabled
 * The T button will retest all isolated segments and reenable them if
   they test OK.
 * If the DEMPR is powered down, the segments are isolated but usable.
