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)?
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
