What could actually be wrong because with a sh run command none of the interfaces appear.



Re: Switch Error at bootup


Since the switch is new, ask your supplier or Cisco to replace it and don't accept RMA because its faulty out from the box - also, don't spend time troubleshooting it, and when your supplier arrived trying to troubleshoot it, don't accept it, demand for a new switch.

I think some people from where the device comes from may be using it in a lab. I ordered two 3845 routers last year, both package are the same (newly packed) but when I boot up the routers, one of them already have a configuration.
