I have a Multilayer Switch Feature (WS-F6K-MSFC2) installed in a 6509 chassis.
The MSFC hangs periodically where no traffic traverses the switch and from the supervisor I must issue a reset to the device.
It will recover after a fashion.
It has a redundant 6509 which handles BGP duties as well.
I am not certain if this is related, but after issuing the reset on the primary switch, I must log on to the
backup switch's router and issue a clear ip bgp * command to resume WAN access.
I thought this was a hardware problem. I am being told though by my hardware support this
maybe more a software problem.
I have not made configuration changes to either of these switches in at least a year.
But in reviewing the supervisor log, I see my MSFC has reset a few time in the past
30 days anyway.
Is this a behavior anyone has observed and if so what was the resolution?
