What is this error?

I can't see anything on the pcmcia cards I've tried 3 of them, even after being formatted and I KNOW they have an IOS on them, but when I dev all cards they show nothing except for the bootflash, this is a 7206 chassis, NPE400 with an I/O card.

Im beginning to think the IO card is bad?

Help please! Any suggestions?

Re: What is this error?

Hi Alexander,

Looking at the later errors, it does report "PCI bus  parity error" in the boot sequence before crashing to ROMMON, which  could be correlated with bad backplane. So potentially it could be  chassis but I cannot recall any issue like that, such errors are mostly  caused by I/O controller failure, flash card failure or incorrect  formatting, NPE failure - sorted by higher probability first.

If you ruled out I/O, flash and NPE by swapping - seems like chassis is the only left as a possible cause.

Kind Regards,
Ivan

What is this error?

Hi Alexander,

The system can't get to the PCMCIA controller on the I/O card.

    %ERR-1-GT64120 (PCI-0): Fatal error, Parity error on master write

    GT=0xB4000000, cause=0x0140E083, mask=0x0ED01F00, real_cause=0x00400000

    bus_err_high=0x00000000, bus_err_low=0x00000000, addr_decode_err=0x00000470

    %ERR-1-PERR: PCI bus parity error

    %ERR-1-FATAL: Fatal error interrupt, No reloading

    err_stat=0x1, err_enable=0xFF, mgmt_event=0x44

CPU signal 22 indicates a fatal HW exception, also note parity error on master write.

If you are sure the flash cards are ok (possibly, check by inserting into another router), that means the I/O controller itself is having issues. Make sure everything is firmly seated and if so, I/O controller is most likely faulty and has to be replaced.

Kind Regards,

Ivan

What is this error?

check compatibility of your image and pcmcia card, try another image and another router

New Member

What is this error?

Ive replaced the IO board and I still receive the same error.

Let me delve more into the image factor and try different pcmcia cards.

New Member

Re: What is this error?

It's still stumping me. I know the IOS is valid and pcmcia card is valid its been in a NPE300 machine running fine.

Could the chassis cause such a problem? It is our bench chassis which looks like its been through hell and back.. yet i've had many successful builds off of it.

The PCMCIA card is a Cisco ATA Flash 128mb and the image file is "c7200-ik9o3s-mz.123-8.T3.bin"

Should be no problem?

Cisco Employee

What is this error?

Hi Alexander,

SW is compatible, no issue there. 128Mb card MEM-SD-NPE-128MB should also work with NPE (is that the one you have?).

Do you have any spare NPE to swap with the current one?

And did you test the pcmcia card in another router - can other router read it?

Kind Regards,
Ivan

What is this error?

Thanks Ivan

I think you got it mixed up, the memory physically on the NPE400 card is a 16mb. I know it's small, but it shouldn't be spitting this error if that's the cause. The PCMCIA card is the 128mb flash.

I have to locate my other NPE400 as I can't seem to put my finger on it right now

But I have 2 spare NPE300's which delve the same problem when trying to boot.

I have 2 IO cards, and 3 PCMCIA cards which were formatted in a 7206VXR w/ NPE300, I copied the IOS off that machine too, which is a router currently in operation, so I know that IOS works and these PCMCIA cards all work too..

I'm at a loss

Cisco Employee

What is this error?

Hi Alexander,

Right, it was incorrect copy-pasting, I was checking both and meant MEM-NPE-400-128MB PID to be pasted.

Alex, you mentioned you have 2 other routers with NPE300 and the same issue when trying to boot. Can you do the image verification on the working router, please? Here are the steps:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-6083

The fact the router you got image from is working fine does not mean the IOS image is OK, as it is loaded to DRAM on the boot stage and never accessed on flash card till next reboot. So in case it got corrupted, the working router would still continue work properly.

So to make sure the image is OK, you should do /verify on it and compare checksums.

You could also load the same or other image from CCO and try to boot with it.

Kind Regards,
Ivan

What is this error?

Hi Alex,

Also, please insert this problem flash card into working router and collect "show flash all" or "show bootflash", depending under which name it shows up.

Kind Regards,
Ivan

Re: What is this error?

What are the chances of it being the chassis itself?

I just found my spare NPE400 and IO card that matched eachother after my upgrade to a G1, they were known working when pulled. I put both the NPE400/IO in my bench chassis and I STILL got the same error...

There is no way this is possible.

I don't currently have access to another chassis to test, but this is enough for me to believe it is the chassis itself.

No matter what engine or I/O I use, I get this

"Error, PCMCIA vendor/id incorrect, 0xFFFFFFFF"

Yet I can always get to rommon?

Re: What is this error?

Well I can't see 3 IO boards being bad, and nearly 5 PCMCIA cards that 3/5 were formatted on a NPE300 machine with the format command.. the other 2 I know are working flash cards.

I'll let you guys know if the chassis is the issue when I get another one to test.

Just for others that may have similar issues.

Thanks again Ivan.

Cisco Employee

Re: What is this error?

Agree, so many cards cannot be faulty at the same time unless there is some conspiracy :-)

You are welcome, Alexander, looking forward to your results with chassis.

Ivan

Re: What is this error?

Chassis came in, and sure enough, it was the culprit.

You can waste so much time on Cisco's ..

All input was appreciated, thanks guys.

Cisco Employee

Re: What is this error?

Hi,

Thanks for update on the chassis replacement results, glad it is working fine finally!

Could you also mark the correct answer for others' use and rate helpful posts, please?

Ivan
