Issue: the switch is rebooting continuously

Hi everybody,

I have a trouble with a switch (switch 1 master of  3 switchs in one stack)  that is rebooting continuously when i connect a machine on it.

Historic:

I rebooted the stack because of electric cut.

After startup completed, the switch 1 master rebooted again and again

I turned off the switch 1 and I downgraded the priority level

I powered on the swtich and it has been added to the stack with slave position.

If i don't connect PC on it, it's ok but as soon as i connect a PC, the switch is rebooting


When i connect or remove a PC on the switch, it reboot with logs below:

When I remove the switch of the stack , I have the same issue if I connect a PC.

I don't see warnings for hardware failure.

I have crash info but i don't know how to translate it?

Do you have any idea?

Reinstall the IOS?

Thanks in advance for your help

Issue: the switch is rebooting continuously

You've got multiple problems.  Here they are:

1.  Your switch is undergoing a crash-boot-loop.  The switch crashes then tries to create a crashinfo file.  For unknown reasons the flash is full so the switch can't write the crashinfo.  Because of this the switch "crashes" again, reboots and the cycle repeats itself.

2.  You are running 802.1X?  With a buggy IOS 12.2(52)SE.

That's it.

To solve your issue, you need to stop the crash-boot-loop.  In order for you to do this, you'll need to hold down the mode button while the switch is rebooting and go into ROMmon.

Issue: the switch is rebooting continuously

Hi Leo,

Thanks for your help.

I deleted files about crash info in the flash to free space and the switch can again write crashinfo.

But the swich is still rebooting...

All my switchs have the IOS version 12.2(52) SE and I didn't have any trouble before this reboot because of this electric cut.

Issue: the switch is rebooting continuously

Ok, this is the stack master, right?

Go back to ROMmon and delete all the config.

Issue: the switch is rebooting continuously

Hi,

No I downgraded the switch to member only

I deleted all the configs and the flash was empty.

I copied a new IOS to the flash in rommon mode with the command "copy xmodem flash:"...
I set boot flash with this IOS.

I configured basic configuration with one interface vlan and one port to make tests

But if i connect a port, the switch is rebooting continuously again ...

I think I need to open call at Cisco...

Thanks
