Switch hardware errors


  I am getting the following errors on a DCX switch. Does anyone know what it means. Also is there any document that lists this type of errors and probable cause/fix.

Critical S5,C3: Above normal hardware errors were observed: fault1:0xd, fault2:0x64 thresh2:0xb0000064. Chassis 71 1 C3-1010

Re: Switch hardware errors

From the FOS 7.1 Message Reference Guide:


Message                S<slot number>,C<chip index>: Above normal hardware errors were observed:

                             fault1:0x<fault1_cnt>, fault2:0x<fault2_cnt> thresh2:0x<threshold_used>.

Message Type        LOG

Severity                  CRITICAL

Probable Cause      Indicates that above-normal errors were observed in hardware that may or may not impact the data


Recommended        When this error is observed persistently, power cycle the specified blade using the slotPowerOff

Action                      and slotPowerOn commands. If the problem persists, replace the blade.
