Its what it says , its a HW issue . Call cisco and get it rma'd.

Thank you for your reply, I don't have the warranty on this switch. What is the ballpark for this repair, thanks!

Call cisco think this has a lifetime warranty and a 3560 is not that old of a model. You will need the serial number off the switch.

I have the same issue on a WS-C3550-24-PWR in my lab. Reports:


POST: CAM Subsystem Tests : Begin

Address bus test failed for associated data

POST: CAM Subsystem Tests : End, Status Failed

INIT: failed CAM ASIC initialization


And shortly after this:


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

Reason:

Address bus test failed for associated data


Did you ever get Cisco to replace the switch or? This one is way out of warranty, but if a switch has a lifetime warranty of this failure then I'm glad


Could be nice to be able to do some labs at home.


Thanks.

3550 is not covered under the new Extended Lifetime Warranty.
