Interface Errors in logs - 3750X

Hi, 

When checking the logs on one of my switches, I see many entries for for a number of interfaces in the format of:

Mon Jun 02 14:45:12 2014: <187>312: *hostname*: Jun  2 13:47:32.575: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface GigabitEthernet1/0/5, changed state to down
Mon Jun 02 14:54:51 2014: <187>313: *hostname*: Jun  2 13:57:11.536: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface GigabitEthernet1/0/5, changed state to up.

It is a 24 port switch and the errors occur on at least 10 ports, there are no user complaints, but I just want the errors to stop being generated. Any ideas how to do this?

I have changed a couple of ports around, done a shutdown/no shutdown on each of the interfaces and even reset the switch. My next step is to change the cables, but because of the number of ports involved, I'm not sure that will really do anything.

 

Thanks,

Harv

Hi Harv,

Hi Harv,

 

Most of the times it was noticed as the hardware/nvram issue and the fix was to replace the Switch.

 

However please try below steps if it works:

- Check the power supply to switch (As there could be a intermittent power issue)

- format nvram (take backup of configuration before formatting)

- apply the backup config and save it

- reload the switch couple of times and look for the error if the issue still persists

- if issue still persists then you can go for the replacement of the switch as these steps will specify this as an hardware/nvram issue.

Venkatesh.

Hi, Venperum

Thanks, I think I can rule out a power issue as the interfaces do not all go down simultaneously. I'll look into your other points too.

Interface UPs and Downs may

Interface UPs and Downs may be caused by Layer1 issues too. Users may not report for drops as the downs are for very short time and the applications in use may sustain that drop.

Hi, VenperumI am looking to

Hi, Venperum

I am looking to format the nvram this evening. Can you verify some things? What do you mean when you say "format nvram"? The options I get for format are:

[format command output]

#format ?

flash1:  Filesystem to be formatted
flash:   Filesystem to be formatted

[End]

nvram is not listed. So I assume it cannot be formatted?

[Directory listing]

#dir ?
  /all             List all files
  /recursive       List files recursively
  all-filesystems  List files on all filesystems
  bs:              Directory or file name
  cns:             Directory or file name
  flash1:          Directory or file name
  flash:           Directory or file name
  null:            Directory or file name
  nvram:           Directory or file name
  system:          Directory or file name
  tar:             Directory or file name
  tmpsys:          Directory or file name
  xmodem:          Directory or file name
  ymodem:          Directory or file name

[End]

Looking at the above, I can format flash but not nvram. Are you saying to delete my startup-config from nvram and reload a couple times? If that does not work, the switch will need replacing?

There are also 5 files in nvram: Am I deleting them all (backing up beforehand, of course).

Thanks

Hey,Try erase nvram.HTH

Hi, Prajith

 

Sorry, I missed this. CRC errors and everything else is at 0 from what I can see I have around 8 ports generating errors today (No user complaints, just what appears to be in syslog file).

Check the inetrface

Check the inetrface configuration..Are all interfaces configured with appropriate access ports and trunk port commands, inorder to avoid auto negotiation?

Hi, AllThanks for the

Hi, All

Thanks for the comments. So I have changed all the cables, changed the ports and reloaded the switch at least 4 times now. It was clear all weekend (no users logged in), but early this morning (Monday), the logs started filling up again.

I have four files in my nvram: directory, but I cannot see how deleting them will resolve the problems I am experiencing.  Can you tell me what result I expect to see as a result of erase nvram: ?

[Files in nvram:]

 500  -rw-        8454                    <no date>  startup-config
  501  ----        1937                    <no date>  private-config
    1  ----          35                    <no date>  persistent-data
    2  -rw-           0                    <no date>  ifIndex-table
    3  -rw-         649                    <no date>  xxxxxxxxhost#xxxx.cer

 

[End]

Thanks,

Harv
