Hello Amar,

your ACE module is running A2(2) software

from A2.(2) release notes there are two open bugs that could have caused the module reload

CSCsv92321, CSCsx25981—The ACE module reboots unexpectedly and writes a core file to the disk. Workaround: None.


both  have been closed and merged with

CSCsq38638            Bug Details

SRAM Parity Error ~LEGAL ADDR~sometimes IFMGR core at same time

The ACE blade cores indicating a SRAM Parity Error. Occasionally another type of process (such as IFMGR, etc.) core may accompany the SRAM error crash.


This is a rare condition where the ACE blade is running and performs an SRAM operation that detects an SRAM parity error. 


Reboot of the ACE will clear the state.  This reboot is accomplished automatically when the corefile is created.

Hope to  help

I have exactly the same problem, however my version is A2(3.5).

Can you help?
