C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

I upgrade the C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b. The Router doesn’t know the Fast Ethernet anymore. Although it knows the Giagabit Ethernet! The bizarre thing about this is if I make a show version it shows me the “48 FastEthernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s) and 2 Gigabit Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s)” but not when I do a show running-config. When it starts up a lot of error comes saying FOUND an unknown transceiver on port ..

Did anyone make the same experience?

thanks andrea

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

Hi,

what is the "show start" output?

It looks like your startup config might be damaged.

What is the "show flash" output?

Have the upgrade process passed correctly without any problem?

Was it done via CLI or CMS (VSM)?

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

hi milan

the startup-config shows the fastethernet port .

with the sh flash conmmand it shows the right ios version but not a ...diag.... file. do you know what I mean with the ...diag...

sh flash:

I have :

c3500xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC3b.bin

and on another switch which works i have:

c3500xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC3b.bin

c3500XL-diag-mz-120-5.3.WC.1

can that be the problem?

the upgrade was done via CLI

ciao andrea

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

Hi Andrea,

you don't need a diag file at all. If there is a diag file on your switch it's just left as a remain of Cisco factory testing and you can delete it.

Have you followed all steps of the CLI upgrade procedure

http://cco-rtp-1.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps637/prod_release_note09186a0080099818.html#94646

correctly? Havent't you missed any step?

What is the complete sh flash output?

And complete sh ver output?

What is the output of sh post?

Regards,

Milan

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

It's really strange.

I see two suspicious lines in the output:

a) C3500XL POST: Configuring Switch Parameters: Passed Error.

b) mac-address-table aging-time 0

^

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

So it seems to me there might be a damaged startup config in your switch.

If there is mac-address-table aging-time 0 - this might make the switch totally confused.

I would try to clear the startup config (wr erase) and reload the switch again.

Maybe this helps.

Milan

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

Hi Milan

Many thanks for your help.

That with the config was a good think. But even that didn' t bring the

result which I hoped.

I'm going to send the switch to cisco.

Ciao

Andrea

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

Hi Andrea,

before sending the switch to Cisco I would try to either downgrade it back to previous IOS version or upgrade it to the latest IOS (there is 12.0.5.WC7 available on CCO).

Sending the device to Cisco is always the last step.

Another idea: Have you checked the boot variables (sh boot)?

Regards,

Milan

Re: C3548-XL with the IOS 120-5.WC3b

Hello Milan,

I have same issue with a customer switch, where mac-addressing aging-time is 0 (zero). As I saw, this feature could be set by config. My question: How many second is the default value; means could I only set aging-time to this value, without load the whole configuration.

Thanks for help

Regards Ruedi
