3750 switch interface crc/error problem

Hello

I'm having a problem with a WS-C3750G-12S-E. I'm seeing CRCs/input errors only on specific interfaces on the 3750. Initially i thought this was a fibre issue so i cleaned/replaced the fibre patch leads as well as the SFPs at both ends. the CRC's/errors continued until i removed the SFP from the switch and placed it into another port on the same switch.

if i use interfaces gi1/0/1, 2, 5, 6, 9 or 10 i get errors/CRCs - if i move the SFP (fibre or copper) to interfaces gi1/0/3, 4, 7, 8, 11, or 12 the errors/CRCs stop. The output of "sh platform pm if-numbers" below shows that the switch has 3 asics (with 4 ports) - the interfaces i'm having a problem with are spread across all 3 asics but only on the last 2 ports (2 and 3).

Gi1/0/12 12 12 12 1/1 1 12 12 local Yes Yes

 

there is very little traffic through the switch and cpu is ok. Could this be a hardware fault? switch is currently running c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-55.SE6.bin ( upgraded from 52). output of the command sh platform port-asic stats drop for the affected interfaces show zero drops.

thanks in advance

3750 switch interface crc/error problem

Try this :

http://packetlife.net/blog/2008/mar/28/investigating-ciscos-built-in-tdr/

and anyway i would check how duplex and speed are configured. they should be hardcoded and with no negotiation.

3750 switch interface crc/error problem

thanks for the resonse Alessio - unfortunately tdr isn't support on sfp ports ( i get % TDR test is not supported on interface ) when i try. I've already double checked speed/duplex settings and all are ok. as i say, the problem is resolved when i move the sfp onto gi1/0/3,4,7,8,11,12 but i don't have enough of these 'working' ports for all my links.

thanks

Hi Alessio,

Cisco switches will support copper TDR but OTDR is not yet supported.

hi leolaohoo - requested output below (for gi1/0/1 - one of the affected ports).

thanks

3750 switch interface crc/error problem

Thanks for the output.  Really helps.

Your line errors are "Symbol errors" being received by the interface.

May I ask what is connected to this? 

if i use interfaces gi1/0/1, 2, 5, 6, 9 or 10 i get errors/CRCs - if i move the SFP (fibre or copper) to interfaces gi1/0/3, 4, 7, 8, 11, or 12 the errors/CRCs stop.

This description is very "disturbing".  I believe the 3750 has a single 3 ASICs.  And if you say that moving the SFP to 3 & 4, ports 7 & 8 and ports 11 & 12 and the line errors stops, I am inclined to believe that the ASIC is failing.
