We have configured hundreds of SRW208P switches, with the below hardware and software versions, using a canned configuration we developed long ago. Three weeks ago we placed an order for 4 of them (all same versions as below) and found when we loaded our canned configuration, they all dropped off the air. After further investigation, we pinpointed the issue to Rapid Spanning Tree mode settings. At the instant we set the SRW208P's bridge priority to the same priority as the connecting switch (SRW2048G4P--same switch and RSTP priority we have used for all prior configuration) the SRW208P drops off the network. Console continues to work fine.
Boot Version: 1.0.1 (Date: 06-Jun-2006, Time: 17:23:21)
Software Version: 1.0.4 (Date: 06-Sep-2007, Time: 09:11:40)
Hardware Version: 00.03.00
Has anybody else had something like this happen recently? We worked around the issue by creating a new canned configuration with SRW208P RSTP root priority to something different from the SRW248G4P, but, I'm wondering if this is a faulty chip series or something like that.
