cisco WS-C2950G-24-EI-DC (RC32300) processor (revision L0) with 19912K bytes of memory.
We have a redundent configuration with two 3640s connected to two 2950s, The 2950s are connect to each other. The 3640s have a routed connection between each other running OSPF. The layer 2 side is in a U configuration, 3640 to 2950 to 2950 to 3640. The 3640s connect to a cloud via OSPF.
During a reboot the 2950 switch will bring up the linkbeat on its interfaces, but it does not pass traffic.
The 3640 that is connected directly to the 2950 that is being rebooted sees the link beat come up and propegates this infomation to OSPF, but any traffic sent to the 2950 gets dropped because the IOS is not up yet.
Is there any way to prevent the sending of traffic to that switch until it is fully up?
