I have a problem with FWSM running version 3.2(5) on Catalyst 6506 with 12.2SXH(33)a. All the interfaces of the FWSM are in down/down state without any explicable reason. The output is in the attachment - FWSM2 is the problematic one, FWSM1 is working fine. Uptime is 16 days on both modules.
Both switches have this configuration:
firewall module 1 vlan-group 2,
firewall vlan-group 2 77-80,749,750
I have one more 6506 with FWSM both running the same versions - the module works just fine. The trunks between the two switches are up, the VLANs are in STP Forwarding State (I'm running MST btw), everything looks just fine. The more interesting thing is that I'm 99% sure this problem is reoccurring in time - it appears for a while then it disappears without any logical reason. I searched through the bug toolkit as the FWSM version is quite old but I couldn't find a bug matching this description. Anyone had a similar problem? I plan to do an upgrade tomorrow if I don't find another solution.
