VSP 9000 booting up
« on: December 07, 2013, 08:54:37 AM »
Hello!

we have problem with booting of VSP 9012 chassy. We installed 4SF to positions frpm 1 to 4, 2 CP modules to units 1 and 2, 4 power modules and some line cards. But chassy doesn't load. it stops at:

CP1  [12/07/13 11:28:17.002] 0x0001074d 00000000 GlobalRouter HW ERROR Module 9080CP in slot 1 took too much time to report ready, marking it as failed
CP1  [12/07/13 11:28:17.004] 0x00010756 0040000b.1 DYNAMIC SET GlobalRouter HW WARNING Module 9080CP in slot 1 is non-operational


then reboots and cycle repeats. Log in attachment. We try different combinations of cards, installed in chassy (fo rexample leave only 3 SF and 1 CP or only 1 CP, without line cards, try different SF and CP modules - it doesn't help).     What can be the problem? i would be glad for any ideas!!! Thank you very much in advance.

what is the manufacturing date on your modules?

Someone from avaya might kill me for saying this, but some of the early cards were extremely buggy.

1) Could somebody provide log of normal VSP 9000 booting process?
2) Could VSP 9000 boot only with 1 CP without any SF and IO cards?
3) Could VSP 9000 boot without external CF card?
4) Could we use for external SF any card or only special Avaya card?

Could somebody share experience in these questions?

you will find the manufactured date on the boxes the modules came in.  There is also a MIB that will tell you, you will just need to look for it.

As for your quetions.

I seem to recall a note that The VSP will boot with only 1 CPU.  however, I never tried this.

A VSP9000 will boot with 1 CPU's and 3 SF in slots 1,4, and any other slot.
The VSP9k will boot without any i/o cards.  that is actually the recommending boot process for first powering on the VSP9k. 

You can use any SF cards, however only the SF cards that came wit the 9080 are supported.


This is just a though................, but with all the issues you are having why wouldn't call your Re-seller or Avaya. If you followed the documentation and what you are describing is accurate you could have a legitimate hardware problem.
