This message indicates that the firmware of the specified module has detected a parity error. The system automatically resets the module to recover from the error. A crashinfo file on also appear on this module. The error message may be due to transient or hardware failure. If the error message occurs for one time then it is transient issue. This is automatically recovered by the system. The symptom for the parity can be identified by the CPO_ECC in the cache memory. The ECC represents the parity error has been corrected by the system itself.
These are the two kinds of parity errors:
Soft parity errors
These errors occur when an energy level within the chip (for example, a one or a zero) changes. When referenced by the CPU, such errors cause the system to either crash (if the error is in an area that is not recoverable) or they recover other systems (for example, a CyBus complex restarts if the error was in the packet memory (MEMD)). In case of a soft parity error, there is no need to swap the board or any of the components.
Hard parity errors
These errors occur when there is a chip or board failure that corrupts data. In this case, you need to re-seat or replace the affected component, which usually involves a memory chip swap or a board swap. There is a hard parity error when multiple parity errors occur at the same address. There are more complicated cases that are harder to identify. In general, if you see more than one parity error in a particular memory region in a relatively short period, you can consider it to be a hard parity error.
The error message looks similar to this:
Mar 9 12:12:24.427 GMT: %PM_SCP-SP-1-LCP_FW_ERR: Module 6 is experiencing thefollowing error: Pinnacle #0 PB parity error. Tx path. Status=0x0042
Studies have shown that soft parity errors are 10 to 100 times more frequent than hard parity errors. Therefore, Cisco highly recommends you to wait for a hard parity error before you replace anything. This greatly reduces the impact on your network.
I am planning on rebooting both the supervisor sup2T modules in our 6509E core switch. I want to do this with little to no downtime. My supervisor modules are running 15.1(2)SY2 software on both. the redundancy are configured to use SSO....
Prezada comunidade, saudações!Alguém poderia por favor explicar a principal diferença entre switch stacking e chassis aggregation?Eu sei que em stacking existem portas dedicadas para esta finalidade onde interconecta-se vários switches transformando-o log...
I have configured BGP aggregate addresses for RFC1918 address space on our WAN routers towards our core switches to reduce the routing tables sizes on our LAN devices. I have configured an unsuppress-map on our WAN peering to allow our local network...
We are a small organization that bought into 4506E chassis switches for our networking about 10 years ago, mainly due to the 10 gig backbone capability. As I expect most people with 4500E are aware, the 6L-E supervisor goes officially end of life in 2020,...
Hello guys, I found at Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches Datasheet that Catalyst 9200 supports 4096 VLAN ID's and Catalyst 9200L supports 1024 VLAN ID's. So, it isn't possible to configure VLAN with ID's above 1024 on Catalyst 9200L switches?&...
