Re: Partial Network Outage on Catalyst WS-C6509-E using dual Sup posted 09/27/2008
[Chronological Index] [Thread Index] [Top] [Date Prev][Date Next] [Thread Prev][Thread Next]


A few things that you might consider:

1. Where is this line:

%FABRIC-SP-5-FABRIC_MODULE_ACTIVE: The Switch Fabric Module in slot 5
became active.

2. What IOS Version do you have on yuor supervisor?  Have you checked it for
any issues or bugs?  Was it upgraded recently?  Why?

3. Have you consulted TAC?

4. Have you considered configured the supervisor to offload the crashdump to
an FTP server so you'll have something tangible for TAC?

5. Have you prepared a show tech-support for TAC to analyze?

6. Are there any other events surrounding this issue and exactly how many
time and how often is it happening?

7. Have you checked the flash for any crash_dump information?

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Just some ideas off the top.
