Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960 No Post / Solid Green Syst / Dead Switch?
Feb 16, 2013
I have 2 - WS-C2960-24TT-L switches. Both are experiencing the same issue. Upon booting them up, all lights flash on the mode indicator panel, then it goes directly to a solid green "SYST" light. Nothing registers across the console cable. I have tried different baud rates, cables and computers. None of the ports come up regardless of how long either switch is powered on. Holding the Mode button during boot up produces the same result, nothing. Sounds like they are dead, however, I thought this would be the place to go for ideas. Can I revive these switches?
After powering up a WS-C3750-48PS switch, Normal POST LED flashing of lights does not happen, instead the switch is stuck in SYST Mode on the front panel. My attempt to hold down the mode button upon powering up for 15 sec fails to reboot the switch. I cannot console to the switch. Is this switch unrecoverable? Should I RMA with TAC?
I have a C2960-24TT-L Switch with the following problem:When the Power Cord is plugged in the Switch, all switch indicator LEDs go on very briefly. Then SYST LED blinks very briefly, goes on steady and remains at this state without any indication at the console.Tried the reset by holding the MODE button while plugging in power but I still get no indication at the console. All is fine with console, meaning that if I take out the cable and plug it in another switch, then I see all that there is there to be seen.My question: Is the switch beyond repair or is there something that can be done to get the switch to run POST and boot at rommon so that I can reload SW and configs?
dcm425 dont turn off also has 4 solid green lights...it happen after a power outage my router works fine but my dmc425 cable modem just has the 4 green solid lights when it's plugged in when i push the power button nothing happens at all
-no power light -solid green lights: WAN-L1-L2-L3-L4
tried to go to recovery mode (power on while holding reset switch).....does not work.my search on the internet revealed, that after bad flash, power light still comes on, maybe as orange, maybe blinking, or just blinks once
Recently we had a situation where our users were unplugging one of our un-mounted 1252 LAPs. They would do this so they could borrow the wire to direct connect any one of their devices not realizing they were disconnecting a wireless access point. After discovering that the AP was unplugged once again, our admin plugged the AP back to the network but noticed that it no longer would connect to the controller. We can no longer console into the AP but can console into all other APs we have. All 3 lights are now green. Radio and Ethernet are solid and Status is blinking. I found the Cisco doc explaining the meaning of the front panel lights but have not found this particular configuration. What these lights mean and why not being able to use the console port?
I had an old Cisco Catalyst 2948G switch that I have not used in about 7 years down in my basement. I powered it on and went through the process of clearing out the configurations, and I got to a point where one of the commands to clear out the config asked me to install jumpers for "ROM" and "ERASE". There is a third jumper labeled "NO BOOT". They are numbered J6, J7, & J8 respectivelyI found the jumpers inside and put the jumpers on them and ran the command expecting it to remove any old configurations I had on the switch and bring it back to factory state, but I was wrong.

This switch runs CatOS, not IOS.When power is applied to the switch, the fans turn on as normal, but no LEDs are lit on the front. There are green LEDs lit next to the jumpers inside, but that is all. I am not able to get any response from it on the console at all anymore.The LEDs that are lit green inside are labeled "CR5" and CR6".
I have a Cisco 4500. Recently some of the ports seem to have "died"/ will not supply Poe to phones. Some work for data only. Other do not work at all. The switch has been restarted, this made no difference.
I've not found any topic related to what happened to me. Bought two cameras and upgraded the firmware on both as asked, but one of them just stopped. The light is solid green and not red like other posts.Tried the recovery procedure, but the browser won't find my camera. Changed computer IP and everything else that was told to be done. Nothing works!! I also can't find any posts relaled to my problem all over the internet.
I work at a hospital and we have 3750X-48P switches in stacks in various locations throughout the hospital. We have noticed that when an EKG machine is plugged into one of the ports on some of these switches and the EKG machines are set manually to 100/Full, the ports are no longer usable until the switch is restarted. The switch is configured for auto. If the EKG machine is set to auto, it will work and not cause problems. The link on the interface will show up/up and there will be output packets increasing. However, there will be no inputs on the link and the port is unusable. Unfortunately, even when the device is removed, the port becomes unusable for any device. Is there any way to fix this problem without rebooting the switch?
I have a WRT300N and the power light is dim and all 4 ports are solid green along with the internet light being solid green.. Nothing else is plugged in.. Just the power.. I have tried to hard reset and nothing happens.
I have a Cisco SG 300-20 as the core switch, layer 3. It is 192.168.4.6 on VLAN1 and 192.168.5.1 for VLAN2 (VOIP). All the ports are set in trunk mode. DHCP relay is setup on this switch.
The phones connected into a layer 2, Catalyst 2960-S switch. All ports are set in trunk mode. Default gateway on it is set to 192.168.5.1.
DHCP for both VLANs is provided by a Windows Server 2008 R2 server (the relay IP 192.168.4.15).
There is also an ASA 5510 in the mix which is 192.168.4.1. It has a route added to it for the 192.168.5.0 network to go to the SG 300 (192.168.5.1).
Just the two switches can ping each other on the 192.168.5.x network when I "add vlan 2" to the trunk port that is connected between the SG 300 and the 2960. The phones don't get DHCP on the 2960 switch. And I cannot ping 192.168.5.x from the ASA or anything else on the 192.168.4.x network.
After a bit of reading on intra-vlan routing for the SG 300 switch, I am thinking the SG 300 has to be the "center" of things so I need to make it 192.168.4.1 to be the gateway for both VLANs and change the ASA to 192.168.4.2 for VLAN1, etc. And I really can't do asymmetric routing with this switch.
I have a statck of 4 2960s switches, with POE powered access points on 2 of them. All of the access points appear to be functioning normally. For some reason, on 3 interfaces connected to access points, I get the following when issuing show interfaces status:
Gi3/0/9 connected: T 7 a-full a-1000 10/100/1000BaseTX ^
My question is regarding the "T" in the status field. I can't find any documentation on this.
i try to implement layer 2 qos in 2960. when i complete to configure the switch, i want to test the qos.PC1 conect to switch port 1,PC2 conect to switch port 2 . PC1 is source teminal. i use skydata.exe and FTP for the test.
when use the skydata ,the PC2 speed can reach 10mbps.when use the FTP , the PC2 only can reach 1.2mbps. why?
I can use Putty to SSH into my new switch (Directly connected to my laptop with ethernet cable), but I cant log into my switch.
Sent username "admin" email@example.com's password: Access denied
It doesnt like my password, but I have only set 1 password (king) on this switch. I've configured 3 other switches with SSH and had no problem. Been trouble shooting for awhile and It'd be great if I could have a 2nd set of eyes take a peek, Also, my running config is attached.
I am setting up a new 2960-S switch and none of the recommended username and passwords combinations work. I have tried CIsco Cisco, <blank> cisco and various other permutations.
I have tried to reset the switch to factory defaults and it still doesn't work. The switch is currently connected to a 3560G and has been assigned an IP. If I try to access it from Network assistant it shows as unmanaged and I get prompted for a username and password.The switch is connected to another new 2960-S via a FlowStack module.
I can understand it 's one of those very basic questions , but how do I identify a Switch is Layer 2 or Layer 3 ?Looking through # show version command and checking the IOS version to be IP BASE or LAN BASE . Is it the right way ?Cisco 2960 is a Layer 2 or a Layer 3 Switch ? I noticed that access-lists could be configured which means that it 's a Layer 3 Switch , right?
I have a Cisco 1841 router connected to a Cisco 2960 switch.Users behind the router can't access the internet but when someone is directly connected to the switch with his PC and uses the IP Address found on the WAN port of the router, he's able to go on to the internet. [code]
Today in my rush to get home I plugged in a new 2960 stack and did a little bit of very basic configuration, but no passwords were set. I tried to telnet in and the message says that a password is required, but none is set. I tried the SDM as I hadn't turned it off yet and it is prompting me for a user/pass but I have no idea what to put in there. No console is available, it's a new office so no employees around either.
Configuration details: I have 2 nexus 5K switches and both 5K is connected to four 2960 access switches in each floor through fiber(shown in the attached picture). I have configured each VPC for each floor and portchannel configuration on 2960s switch to communicate to 5K switches. Now I am not able to communicate PC 1 connected in 1st floor to PC2 connected in 4th Floor.
I have attached topology map of my infra and the configuration files also. 1st floor switch and 4th floor swich have same configuration except IP address and switch name.
Document at url... is quite interesting,One of these goes about the behavior of a switch (2960-S and 3750G) when QoS is not enabled vs the one when QoS is simply enabled with "mls qos".What additional commands, beside "mls qos", would be needed so as to simulate as accurately as possible the switch's behavior when QoS is not enabled?
