These are typically bugs for which you can either update software in the hope won;t happen again, or contact Cisco TAC for support.

Ibrahim,

The first thing you do is to log a case with TAC. You will be assigned an engineer to look after your case. Meanwhile you try to get as much informaiton as you can. i.e your platform, supervisor model, any changes that were done before the incident. etc. Give them as much information and they will start the investigation.

You should always have NMS to capture some information before the box dies accidently like this.

I hope TAC helps to find out the root cause and please post the actions and findings as well

Hi Experts

i have installed a free ware software named KIWI to acts as a syslog server,now what logging traps should i enable on all Cisco devices (routers switches,ASA,ips,acs 5.0) in my network to know what exactly happened that cause the restarts or any wrong things

thanks

Syslog will not be accurate.  If your supervisor card crashes and reboots, it will loose network connectivity.

take a look at your flash for any crashinfo or do a "sh version" and sometimes it will tell you the reason why.

Hi Ibrahim,

best would be to create a FTP server and configure your switch to send crashdump info to the FTP server. This would help you to find root cause for any such problem in future.

without syslogs there's not much a TAC rep can say. As mentioned above if it was not caused by an external factor like a power cut, the only way to move forward is to review the flash content, look for crashdump files and log a TAC request.

Just to clarify - even with crashdumps it is not alway possible to root cause the issue. Just to set right expectations :)
