3750-X StackPower-Problem

Hi all,

I have a problem with a stack of four 3750-X (IPBase, 12.2(55)SE3)

Scenario:

- Sw1 and Sw2 form a power-ring

- Sw3 and Sw4 form a power-ring

- only Sw2 has an additionnal PS

The only power-config I have is the following:

stack-power stack power1

mode redundant

!

stack-power switch 2

stack power1

stack-power switch 1

stack power1

Every minute I get the following log-message:

Jul  6 13:47:47 CEST: %PLATFORM_STACKPOWER-4-PRIO_CONFLICT: Switch 1's power stack has conflicting power priorities

The Message-guide didn't help me any further ...

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750x_3560x/software/release/12.2_55_se/system/message/msg_desc.html#wp1124977

Any idea what can cause these messages?

3750-X StackPower-Problem

Hi,

In power stack 1 the "High port priority value" is the same for both switch 1 and 2. Could change one of those to have unique values and check for errors after that?

Power stack name: power1

    Stack mode: Redundant

    Stack topology: Ring

    Switch 2:

        High port priority value: 12

    Switch 1:

        High port priority value: 12

Kind Regards,
Ivan

3750-X StackPower-Problem

Hi,

This message indicates there are two sets of devices (either a switch or a set of PDs) within the same power stack that have the SAME priority level (1 - 27).  If you saw this once, it's likely it just occurred while you were configuring their priorities.

Please check the priorities first and share the outputs of "show stack-power" and "show env all". If there are matching, then you need to change that. e.g.:

     Switch(config)#Stack-power switch 4
     Power-priority high 11
     Power-priority low 23
     power-prority switch 5

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750x_3560x/software/release/12.2_55_se/configuration/guide/swstkpwr.html#wp1016452

If it is continually happening even the output of "show stack-power" shows there are different, then there is chance you hit CSCtg20513. You can either upgrade the IOS or apply a workaround:

     - toggle the stack ports (shut/no shut) on the unit that is incorrectly reporting this error.

          config t

               stack-power switch

               standalone

               no standalone

Kind Regards,
Ivan

the toggling of the ports didn't help. The priorities are all different:

Thanks Ivan, that did it! I wasn't aware that also these High-values had to be different.
