Problem Description

The version of the Controller board listed above was recently introduced containing a software change.

The Software change caused an issue where upon loss of AC power to a single rectifier in a redundant system, no system alarms are generated, and the AC/DC panel status LEDs fail to indicate the condition. The controller and rectifier do recognize the condition.

This only affects alarming. It does not affect the power system.

Background

A customer reported that their alarms were not working properly when one of the AC power feeds was removed from a redundant power system.

This issue was introduced during a recent cost reduction activity, when a new revision of software was implemented.

Problem Symptoms

The system fails to generate an AC Failure Alarm when a single AC power feed is removed from the shelf assembly. The AC/DC panel status LEDs will also fail to indicate the condition.

Workaround/Solution

There is no workaround for this issue.
Cisco recommends a fix-on-fail strategy for this problem.

Service Logistics has known-good inventory at this time.

The standard RMA process and delivery times are in effect.
