We have just received a 3560G 24 port POE switch back from a rental return with a customer. Upon powering up the switch everything is fine until the following error message

!!! WARNING: The switch is not usable !!!

Unable to create l2trace server process, socket_open() failed

Switch#sh ip int b

Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol

no interfaces are showing up. Any ideas?
