The front panel ports are grouped in 4's which in turn connect to an ASIC. Looks like the ASIC which connects to fa0/9 to 0/12 has gone bad

Interesting , we just had a 2924 fail today with the exact same messages , call the TAC if you have maintenance , if not time to break out the pocketbook . :-)

No way to fix the hardware issue other than doing the RMA. You should be able to use the other ports which are not on that controller though.

The switch will have to be RMAed. Please open a TAC Case
