Cat. 9200 PoE operational state remains 'faulty' for a notconnected interface




I have a strange behavior on a Catalyst 9200 (Running IOS-XE 16.12.4). In the log the following recurrent set of message prints out :

Feb 24 07:43:35.611: %ILPOWER-5-IEEE_DISCONNECT: Interface Gi1/0/5: PD removed
Feb 24 07:43:36.602: %ILPOWER-5-DETECT: Interface Gi1/0/5: Power Device detected: IEEE PD
Feb 24 07:43:37.611: %ILPOWER-5-IEEE_DISCONNECT: Interface Gi1/0/5: PD removed
Feb 24 07:43:37.614: %ILPOWER-3-CONTROLLER_PORT_ERR: Controller port error, Interface Gi1/0/5: Power Controller reports power Imax error detected

As I understand it means the device plugged-in port Gi1/0/5 required more power than negociated, but where it comes tricky is there is no device attached the interface at all :

#show interfaces g1/0/5 status

Port Name Status Vlan Duplex Speed Type
Gi1/0/5 notconnect 162 auto auto 10/100/1000BaseTX

And the PoE operationnal state remains 'faulty' :

#show power inline g1/0/5 detail
Interface: Gi1/0/5
Inline Power Mode: auto
Operational status: faulty
Device Detected: no
Device Type: n/a
IEEE Class: n/a
Discovery mechanism used/configured: Ieee and Cisco

Power available to the device: 0.0

Actual consumption
Measured at the port: 0.0
Maximum Power drawn by the device since powered on: 0.0

Absent Counter: 0
Over Current Counter: 0
Short Current Counter: 0
Invalid Signature Counter: 0
Power Denied Counter: 0

Power Negotiation Used: None
LLDP Power Negotiation --Sent to PD-- --Rcvd from PD--
Power Type: - -
Power Source: - -
Power Priority: - -

Four-Pair PoE Supported: No
Spare Pair Power Enabled: No
Four-Pair PD Architecture: N/A

I assume the issue happened previously and the device was maybe moved to another port. I tried to shutdown/no shutdown the interface but it remains the same. Does anyone know how to get rid of these error messages which fill-up the logs.


Thanks for you help, regards, Vincent
