i´ve got severe problems using CDP on a customers "Core"-Switch, he´s using an ESW540-48. Each time i klick on the URL for the CDP-section, the switch reboots...we aren´t expereiencing the problem on the other 3 switches on the same network, using the same software. We updated them on the last recent version.

Had anyone this problem too?

This is one of the log messages (i enabled debug flash logging, since there´s no syslog server) i get each time i click the CDP topic in the switches management webpage:

Severity Emergency

As i already mentioned, the SW-upgrade didn´t do the trick, the problem persists after that.

That is very odd, have you tried reflashing the firmware and reconfiguring the 540?  It could have had a bad firmware upgrade or something like that.  Is this a new installation or something has been working but just went wrong?

 I have the same problem. Updated to the latest firmware (2.1.21)and still the same!

Changed to several images: 2.0.3, 2.1.19, 2.1.16 and I still have the same behavior even when resetting to Factory defaults!

Please Help!
