CW2000 edition 5 causes Cat6509 to crash?!

We are in the process of upgrading to CW2000 ed.5. This became nescessary due to the many unsupported devices in Ed.4 like the 2600-XM, the 2950 and 3550 series. I have installed the new release on a testplatform first to check the proper upgrade of our database and any unforseen problems. Our current system is also still running NT4 so we have to install W2k first, then Ed.4, restore the data and after that run the upgrade.

This all worked out quite well but after 3 to 4 hours on the network our two core-switches (6509) suddenly started to reboot with the following error message:

(I cut this section from the crashinfo, there are no other error mesages)

This rebooting went on three consecutive times yesterday. Both switches were rebooting.

It stopped when I disconnected the CW2k server from the net.

As I was not yet 100% convinced we reconnected the server today with the same result, same chrasinfo.

The 6509 switches are running the following image:

(I know it is old, but the newer version are not more stable or better than this one.)

I have a complete stackdump from the crashinfo but that was too long to post.

Any sugestions or similar experiences? Who is fabman_rp?

Re: CW2000 edition 5 causes Cat6509 to crash?!

It appears you are hitting CSCdw72922. This can be caused by any snmp queries to the CISCO-CAT6k-CROSSBAR-MIB, including CW2K RME or any snmpwalk.

Re: CW2000 edition 5 causes Cat6509 to crash?!

One more thing about the machine: We did a "clean install" on SP3. i.e. we installed W2K and SP3 first and after that we started with CW2000-ed4&5.

From what I read, this should be allowed.

Maybe this helps to get some more response.

Re: CW2000 edition 5 causes Cat6509 to crash?!

The problem you are having has nothing to do with CW2000, it is a known bug fixed in 12.1E. see:

This problem can be recreated by simply performing an snmpwalk of MIB objects within the crossbar mib, which contains information about the fabric switching module, (fabman-rp call). CiscoWorks2000 is merely hitting the bug when trying to gather inventory information on the 6500.
