4500X Standby Switch in disable mode

Hi,

My Secondary Switch is in disable state despite its in SSO mode. What can be the reason.

#sh redundancy
Redundant System Information :

------------------------------
Available system uptime = 1 year, 7 weeks, 1 day, 2 hours, 8 minutes
Switchovers system experienced = 0
Standby failures = 0
Last switchover reason = none

Hardware Mode = Simplex
Configured Redundancy Mode = Stateful Switchover
Operating Redundancy Mode = Stateful Switchover
Maintenance Mode = Disabled
Communications = Down Reason: Simplex mode

Current Processor Information :
------------------------------
Active Location = slot 1/1
Current Software state = ACTIVE
Uptime in current state = 1 year, 7 weeks, 1 day, 9 hours, 5 minutes

Hi shaharshad, 

Hi shaharshad

Check the software versions in both supervisors from output of "show module". Also the communication seems to be "Simplex".  It should be Duplex mode. I have a 4500 series switch with SSO. Below is the output of various commands.

Configured Redundancy Mode = Stateful Switchover
Operating Redundancy Mode = Stateful Switchover

iOS version is same in both

Re: Hi shaharshad,

Simplex mode is the SYMPTOM of the problem. When the peer is down or Disabled, the active unit automatically goes to Simplex mode (because who would it fail over TO?)

Re: 4500X Standby Switch in disable mode

Check and make sure the standby is not stuck on ROMMON
