Cisco 7200 watchdog hard reset

Hi,

I have a Cisco 7206 running Cisco IOS 12.2(17a) and it works just fine. When I upgraded to 12.3(3), it kept being resetted by "watchdog hard reset. The system would boot up, and I would get the "Return any key to get started" message, but after about 5 seconds the router would restart and I would get the following message:

Press RETURN to get started!

System Bootstrap, Version 12.1(20000710:044039) [nlaw-121E_npeb 117], DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE

Copyright (c) 1994-2000 by cisco Systems, Inc.

ROM: Rebooted by watchdog hard reset

C7200 platform with 524288 Kbytes of main memory

The logs didn't show anything specific, except for the short watchdog message. So I was forced to revert back to 12.2(17a).

Does anyone know what might have caused this?

thanks in advance

Re: Cisco 7200 watchdog hard reset

Looks like a known bug, CSCec14039. The fix only went into one of the latest interims, 12.3(5.8) so you are probably better waiting for 12.3(6).

Re: Cisco 7200 watchdog hard reset

thank you for your reply.

But as far as I could understand, the CSCEC14039 applies to platforms using NPE-G1, and I am using NPE-400. Does this mean that we are talking about the same bug, or it could be something else?

thanks
