Pinned topic Cisco switch 3012 problem

‏2014-04-24T20:37:51Z |

Hi experts,

There used to be 4 switch modules in Blade Center H chassi: bays 1,2,7,9. Everything worked fine.

Then we installed two more modules in bays 3 and 4. After that we start observing an issue: modules 7 and 9 continue working but lost management ip address connectivity. Modules 3 and 4 are in "no fabric" status, but reachable via mgmt ip address. Switches configuration are identical. No changes in Blade center configuration have been performed.

Then we tried to replace module 3 with module 7. Issue was the same. Bay 3 - "no fabric", Bay 7 - no mgmt reachability

I'd really appreciate any ideas where to look

Best Regards

    Dear  Stanislav,

    lets check AMM Service Data of your Blade Center H.

        Dear  Stanislav,

        there is no any CIOv cards (which routes to I/O 3 and 4) in your servers, only CFFh cards. In the BladeCenter H, the ports of CFFh cards are routed through the midplane to I/O bays 7, 8, 9, and 10. Could you explain why you install modules in I/O bays 3 and 4?

        The best would be move Cisco switch 3012 from bay 3 to bay 7.

        Update AMM firmware upto current version 3.66D.

          Dear Alexander,

          Thank you, I see an issue with 3 and 4 bays. But why I/O modules in bays 7 and 9 are not reachable via mgmt ip address? Even internal ping initiated by chassis fails.

           

          Best Regards,

          Stanislav

            Dear  Stanislav,

            what is the status of your question? Did you install switches correctly, AMM fw updated ?

            Could you say which mgmt ip did you use for reach I/O modules? Internal or external? Looks like internal, but why if you set protected mode?
