We have a 3550-24 PWR and also RPS300 for redundant power. My question is when I unplugged the regular power of the 3550 the RPS takes over but when I plug the regular power back in the RPS is still the one that is powering the 3550. How do I make it revert back to its own power supply.
I agree on the behaviour, but it very strange. In a scenario where the switch internal ps don't fail, but the power disappear from the switch and then comes back. Then you don't have any redundance to other switches/units before you reboot the switch!! Strange construction.
As you perhaps know, the doc. for the 3550 is wrong regarding the LEDs:
flashing green: internal ps failure.
flashing amber: rps unavailable.
By the way,
Do you know if the switches connected to rps 300 will send any snmp trap when a failure occur? There is nothing in the log.
"When a failure is detected, the Cisco RPS 300 sends status information showing that the other connected devices will not be supported until the failed device is restored or replaced. This status information can be monitored through CiscoWorks and the Cisco Cluster Management Suite (CMS) Software that provides Web-based network management."
But there is no alarm (Neither Syslog neither SNMP traps) generated by the 2950 in order to indicate that the 2950 is functionning with the RPS.
Yes the leds work. The leds at the 300 was correct according to the doc. When a failure occur at one switch, the switch rps led flashed green. Another switch flashed amber. When looking in the 3550 hw manual, the discription is opposite.
No alarm - nice to know (still strange construction)
I agree this is strange construction. I can only think that the engineers were thingking that if a power failure occurs you have to replace the switch hence you can't revert it back to it's own power supply.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
