4500 - Changing from Layer2 to Layer3 on an interface causes switch to hang

When issuing the NO SWITCHPORT command on a 4500 the switch hangs. The only workaround at the mement is to shut the interface down before changing processing layer on the interface.

What IOS are you running.. Are you able to recreate it everytime. I tested in lab and it works fine.

Switch#sh ver | include IOS

Cisco IOS Software, Catalyst 4000 L3 Switch Software (cat4000-I9S-M), Version 12.2(25)EWA, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Switch#sh run interface fastEthernet 5/48

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 58 bytes

!

interface FastEthernet5/48

switchport mode access

end

Switch#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Switch(config)#int fas5/48

Switch(config-if)#no switchport

Switch(config-if)#ip add

Switch(config-if)#ip address 14.1.24.103 255.255.255.0

Switch(config-if)#end

Switch#

3d02h: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by cisco on console

Switch#ping 14.1.24.1

Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 14.1.24.1, timeout is 2 seconds:

Success rate is 80 percent (4/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/3/4 ms

I am able to replicate everytime. The TAC case is 601584841. Running 12.2.25EWA1

I tried it with EWA1 as well and it works fine. What kind of interface are you issuing "no switchport" under. What other config does it have?

Crashdump

Probably not related to your problem but we ran 12.2(25)EWA1 for a couple of hours. Found CPU running about twice normal - we hit a bug (cannot remember the number).

Now running 12.2(20)EWA1 without a problem so far.
