2950 Failed Redundant power supply

Answered Question

I have a particular 2950 12 switch that the Cisco Network Assistant shows as having a failed redundant power supply error. I pulled the switch from the rack and there is only a single power supply in it and it is functioning. Can I just acknowledge this warning and carry on, or should I be concerned about possible future power supply failure?


Thanks,


Neil

Do a 'show env all' if the PS status shows failed then you would have to replace it.

Hi Neil,


I would suggest you to visually inspect the switch. The switch has 6 LEDs on the front panel for management purpose.


RPS LED:

- off: RPS is off or is not installed.

- Flashing amber: The internal power supply in a switch has failed, and the RPS is providing power to the switch (redundancy has been allocated to this device).


reference: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2950/hardware/installation/guide/hgovrev.html#wp1022295


CLI command:


show env power


the above command will provide you information about the power supply


Hope this helps!
