Problem Description

A small number of Cisco Catalyst 5000 WS-X5162 cards were shipped with an incorrect common language equipment identifier (CLEI) code label. The affected cards were shipped both within systems and as spares.

The CLEI Code number that appears on the approximately 300 WS-X5162 cards shipped since June 28, 1999, from manufacturing is CNRUBG0BAA. The correct CLEI code number that should appear on the WS-X5162 is CNI7AFRAAC. There are no hardware problems with these cards. This is only a CLEI code label issue.

Background

Spares and systems shipped from Cisco between from July 14, 1999, and January 14, 2001, may have been shipped with an incorrect CLEI code label. The incorrect CLEI code number that appears on approximately 300 boards is CNRUBG0BAA. The correct CLEI Code is CNI7AFRAAC.

There are no hardware problems with this card. This is only a labeling issue. Unless the CLEI code information is used within an organization, there will be no adverse affect resulting from this condition. Users, based on their common practices, may elect to ignore the issue completely.

Problem Symptoms

A search for the CLEI Code CNRUBG0BAA in the CLEI Database will return information for the WS-X5302.

Workaround/Solution

The labels have been corrected in manufacturing and the corrected labels have been shipping since February 8, 2002. A label with the correct CLEI code for the WS-X5162 has been produced. Cisco will ship the correct number of labels to correct each device on request. Instructions on where and how to place the label will also be included.

To receive replacement labels, please send an email request to ws-x5162clei@cisco.com with the number of WS-X5162 units you have received with the incorrect labels. Also include your shipping address for the new labels.
