On Friday, there was a problem: switch reboots itself on its own. The logs written that the team was given to restart the console. Access to the switch is just me, changed the password. Syslog writes that there are numerous loop in three VLANs: 112 - network of collaborators. 15 - TV network. 201 - network surveillance cameras. Very strange, considering that the networks and TV cameras no one has ever connected and could not form a loop. All three flounces DHCP and ip-helper is configured on the switch itself. Two VLANs have their DHCP-server logs, and they do not refer to the error. Please tell me, what do I do?

I don't envy your position now. I've got two issues with this:
1. The Sup7E is currently running 3.2.0E. This is the FIRST IOS to support the Sup7E and it's not only very, very old but there are probably a number of "silent crash" bugs.
2. Next, it's hard to determine if the UPS is working or not.
These are the two culprits: An IOS "silent crash" bugs (doesn't leave any crashlogs) or a power outage.
Let's do the easy one first.
1. Look at the downstream switches and find out how long is the outage. When a Sup7E would crash the outage would be about 5 to 6 minutes. Let's say I'm an "evil" guy and put an extra 2 minutes. That makes it 8 minutes. Look at the downstream switches and see if the uplinks went down and then up in less than 8 minutes. If the uplinks went down and up during that time frame, then a silent crash is the culprit.
2. This is tough thing to do to determine if the UPS is working or not. Organize with your management and see if you can get an "outage window" to pull the power of the power supply being powered up by raw power. The PS must NOT be switched off from the power switch of the PS but the mains. Keep the power off for about 2 minutes. If the chassis stays up during the time then the culprit points to a silent crash of the supervisor card.
If it is indeed a silent crash, then it is going to be your job to talk to management and upgrade the IOS. It is of utmost important to read the Release Notes of the IOS you will be upgrading to. The 4500 chassis (and especially the Sup7E) is a different beast. In some cases, one cannot just upgrade to an IOS without the Boot Strap (aka ROMmon) getting upgraded first.
