No layer 2 traffic on several ports on a 4507

No layer 2 traffic on several ports on blade 7 on a 4507.  The trouble is isolated to blade 7 only and only 8 to 10 ports are not working at layer 2.  We have reloaded the switch and replaced the blade.  Two sup engines one is active and the other is standby hot.  We have plugged laptops and a 7945 into the port and layer one is working, but not layer 2.  It show up and up, but when you show mac-address-table, there are no entries.  Currently a 7945 is plugged into one of the ports and it is stuck at configuring ip and of course show mac shows nothing.  Any assistance would greatly be appreciated!!!

These ports worked fine until about a week ago, when the switch was powered down.

You have a lots of POE ports.  Are your power supplies big enough to support all theses POE ports?

Yes.

We haven't had any issues with any poe devices coming up.  I have ran into that issue before and to temporarily resolve the issue, I was able to modify the power supply settings.  I changed the power from "power redundancy-mode redundant" to power redundancy-mode combined.  This got us by until we got larger power supplies.  But back to my issue.  Any ideas why layer 2 is not working?

Re: No layer 2 traffic on several ports on a 4507

The issue was related to the hw-module uplink mode shared-backplane

command.

I have experienced the trouble twice on 4507s and its after entering the hw-module uplink mode shared-backplane and not doing a cold reboot.  A single reload on one sup engine will not suffice.  To eliminate a cold reboot, you can perform a reload on both sup engines, which should work as well.
