Strange Error Message

One of my customers has a 3845 router with 12.3 ISP IOS that has been up for 20 plus weeks.

Got a bunch of the following messages and there is nothing on the web to indicate what they mean.

Here is the error:

bad token 0, wanted TOK_NUMBER|TOK_PUNCT

Any Ideas? Thanks.


Re: Strange Error Message

Checked in Google, it looks like the lanaguage code or JAVA or C++. I suspect there may be some issue in the IOS and cause this error but should not display in the log.... Try to open a TAC case to investigate it w/ Cisco.

Hope this helps.


Re: Strange Error Message

Hi ,

Can you check whether is there any tarce back or %SYS-3-CPUHOG: messages in the output of sh log...

Is it possible to paste the show-tech of the router ..

while searching for known issues I've found one bug CSCdw53063(old one) where I've seen the follwoing messages.

Jan 11 10:49:35 [] 396: *Mar 9 23:43:05.542: bad token 0, wanted TOK_NUMBER|TOK_PUNCT

Jan 11 12:41:24 [] 398: *Mar 10 01:34:54.410: bad token 0, wanted TOK_NUMBER|TOK_PUNCT

Jan 11 16:57:54 [] 401: *Mar 10 05:51:24.376: %SYS-3-CPUHOG: Task ran for 2016 msec (572/352), process = Virtual Exec, PC = 602B3CD0.

Jan 11 16:57:54 [] 402: -Traceback= 602B3CD8 60218040 602189CC 60218414 609FC8E8 609E6C3C 602336C4 602412B4 6029CB14 6029CB00

So it is better check whether you are getting same kind of messages.
