Problem Description

Cisco has identified that Software release 12.2(25)EWA10, 12.2(31)SGA2 and 12.2(31)SGA3 will erroneously report some WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V PoE cards as faulty on bootup. Linecard PoE interfaces will flap and the connected PoE device(s) will power up and down continuously.

Background

WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V hardware revision 4.0 is affected by Health Monitoring code for PoE in 12.2(25)EWA10, 12.2(31)SGA2 and 12.2(31)SGA3 only.

PoE Health Monitoring Diagnostic software incorrectly reports PoE errors for module WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V, hardware revision 4.0. The software resets the PoE ports continuously, and the module becomes non-operational.

Problem Symptoms

PoE devices and data connections become non-operational if the WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V hardware revision 4.0 is used with IOS 12.2(25)EWA10, or 12.2(31)SGA2, or 12.2(31)SGA3. Linecard Interfaces will flap. Connected device(s) will come up and then permanently go down.
