Cat6509 bootproblem: Failed in state 6

Hello!

A Catalyst 6509 with the supervisor WS-X6K-SUP1A-MSFC hangs during boot-up. Console output shows:

System Power On Diagnostics Complete

Boot image: bootflash:cat6000-sup.5-3-1a-CSX.bin

Running System Diagnostics from this Supervisor (Module 1)

This may take up to 2 minutes....please wait

Failed in state 6

Redundancy in the HangState

Reseting this processor......?

System Bootstrap, Version 5.2(1)CSX

Copyright (c) 1994-1999 by cisco Systems, Inc.

LEDs on the supervisor are Status: green, System: amber, Active: amber, PowerMgmt: amber.

What is the meaning of this error message: “Failed in state 6”?

There is only one supervisor module in the switch. What is the meaning of the message: “Redundancy in the HangState” in this case? Could be any hardware problem?

If you have a flash card with a valid image, try booting off it and see if you get the same results. If you, I suspect bad hardware.
