6509E Fan tray 1 mode change failed

I have just installed a CEF720 8 port 10GE with DFC   WS-X6708-10GE card in an existing 6509E Chassis and it shuts down due to inadequate cooling.

I have another 6509E Chassis with exactly the same setup and it works ok with that. Both are brand new.

The one transfers to High power mode and the other fails when trying to swap to restricted mode.

6509E Fan tray 1 mode change failed

Hi see the below information:

About the Fan Tray Mode: This high power mode may change to restricted power mode depending upon the environment temperature, the fan may be working at High or Restricted mode depending on the cooling needed at the moment.

Restricted Power mode: This is a default mode for a fan-tray operation. This mode ensures that there is an adequate amount of cooling provided to the chassis to keep its temperature in control.

High Power mode: This is another mode which is used for future line cards if there an increase in temperature due to addition of modules. In our case, this mode only gets in use when there is WS-X6708-10GE module inserted. Logs are getting displayed as new module is causing rise in chassis temperature and fan-tray has to accommodate more cooling thereby changing its operating mode.

The WS-X6708-10GE requires 84 cfm. Installing a second fan module in the chassis should bring the chassis cooling capacity up to 84 cfm per line card. WS-X6708-10GE is supported in non-E Series chassis at operating temperature up to 40 C only.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jose.

The 6509E chassis doesnt support a 2nd fan tray and there is no  upgrade.

Is there a way of forcing the fan into high power mode?

*Mar  5 13:56:38.787: %C6KENV-SP-3-FANMODEFAIL: Fan-tray 1 mode change failed

This all works ok on our other 6500s

Hi, As far as I know there is

Hi,

 

As far as I know there is no way to force the the fan to work at the high power mode, now can you may be try to insert the module on another slot in the chassis and see if you get the same issue?

New Member

I have tried it in every slot

I have tried it in every slot and it is still the same

Hello Smith,Greetings! As per

Hello Smith,

Greetings! As per the logs, the available cooling capacity per slot is less then the required by module in slot 9. I would recommend following steps.

 

-- The insertion of the new module should trigger high power mode, however, it seems to be stuck in restricted mode.

 

Recommendations:

-- Reset Fan-tray if not tried already.

-- Or reload the switch.

 

.

 

I hope this helps.
