Gigastack GBIC failure

Answered Question
Mar 24th, 2010

Hi,

        I am quite new to Cisco products and currently analysing some Cisco IOS system messgaes. One of them states:" %GIGASTACK-3-INIT_FAILURE : Gigastack GBIC in [chars] initialization failed."

I wanted to know when such failure happens, does that mean that the particular switch is not connected to the network (Till the Gigastack GBIC is up)?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

Hello EE EE,

yes, if there is an alternate path for the management vlan to exit the device that path can be normally in STP blocking state and moved to forwarding state when the root port (Gigastack GBIC) fails.

Hope to help

Hello EE EE,

the switch might have been able to initialize the gigastack GBIC at a later time, or it has other ways to connect to the rest of the network

if that specific GBIC is now operational at a later time you should find a similar message telling that initialization has been successful

Hope to help

Thanks a lot Giuseppe. I'l be more specific in regard to my question. Actually I need to send these syslog messages to a remote syslog server. So will it possible for the switch to send this msg when the Gigastack GBIC is down thorugh other means??
