do i have a dead ACE module?

I rebooted one of my HA ACE modules and it hasn't come back up.  The logs on the 6500 show the following..

do i have a dead ACE module?

Hi,

Looks like its a hardware problem. Try reseating the module and see if that helps. If it still doesn't boot have a TAC case raised for further analysis and requires a replacement.

Thanks Siva.  Have tried the reseat but still no luck.  TAC case in progress.  I think I've had some back luck with these as this is the second module to have gone faulty in as many weeks.

Hi Mick,

Any update from TAC on this ? I have also received following logs on the switch and the active ace had recovered by itself and is now working fine.

%SVCLC-5-SVCLCNTP: Could not update clock on the module 11, rc is -1

Strange thing is the system and kernel uptimes are different ?

# show system up time

System start time:          Tue Jun 12 10:41:12 2012

System uptime:              1 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes, 33 seconds

Kernel uptime:              5 days, 7 hours, 25 minutes, 33 seconds

There are no messages on the switch indicating a module reload but it has caused an outage.

Regards,

Akhtar

Hello Akhtar,

Can you upload the command: #show version?

Can you upload the dir core: , hopefully the ACE might have generated some core dumps which might help us to determine the failure?

Here you have a link about getting the core dumps:

http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Cisco_Application_Control_Engine_%28ACE%29_Troubleshooting_Guide_--_Overview_of_ACE_Troubleshooting#Copying_Core_Dumps

Have you experienced this issue before? Did you experience this issue during a high peak of traffic?

Did you apply any change in the configuration?

#show tech-support and core dumps would help to determine if this was a hardware failure or a software defect

I've the same problem. if

I've the same problem. if your module has been produced between 2005 - 2010 then Cisco has field notice about that. HW on referred list has memory component problem. It should be fixed asap.

Cisco ITD might be a good fit
