I upgraded four 3560E, 12.2(44) to 12.2(55)SE Three 3560 works fine, the last one stops after 17-18 seconds with a solid green LED.
I cant get into ROMmon, the switch doesn't boot up. its like "dead but still alive"
My TS: 1: Removed all SFPs. 2: Reseat PSU and fan moduls. 3: Replace PSU and fan modules. 4: Try to get into ROMmon.(pushing mode button and break seq.)
Startup LED: 0-1 seconds: SYST: Amber RPS: Amber STAT: Green DUPLEX: Green SPEED: Green
1-17 seconds SYST: Blinking Green RPS: OFF STAT: OFF DUPLEX: OFF SPEED: OFF
18 s--> (only testet up to one hour) SYST: Solid Green RPS: OFF STAT: OFF DUPLEX: OFF SPEED: OFF
A working 3560E Startup LED information If I compare a working switch with the faulty switch I can see about 18 seconds into booting SYST change very fast from green to amber and continues with booting, this doesnt happend on the faulty switch (solid green 18 seconds).
Pushing MODE button, doesn't get me in to ROMmon, this works for all the other switches. On a normal 3560 it takes around 40 seconds before I get in to ROMmon. With this faulty switch it stops after 18 seconds(solid green) and it doesnt respond.
Would be nice if anyone could point me in the right direction
I did a little test with 2 C3560 to boot into rommon. One was reacting normal and after 40-60 seconds I was in the rommon mode. The other one needed aproximative 3 minutes to enter rommon. I thought that it's broken...
Then, strange characters started to appear on the screen...console speed was set to 115200.
So, before throw it away, try to let it a little bit more time to enter the rommon and play with the Serial port Baud rate.
For what it is worth as I know the 'real problem' has been solved now but but you simply need to change the baud rate back to 9600 on your terminal client. the router's bad rate gets reset when you reset the switch by pressing down on the mode button. So effectively if you have been working on 115200 previously like I was when the router when bad, I then pressed the mode button to reset the switch and boot into rmon mode, I simply then need to remember to chage my client settings to connect at 9600 now instead of the 115200.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
