Initial Public Release
Certain manufactured 15454-SA-HD chassis shipped with secure locked mode enabled. This mode blocks all communication to the TCC control card and prohibits configuration or status checking. These 15454-SA-HD chassis are identified by serial number.
Certain 15454-SA-HD chassis were incorrectly set to secure locked mode prior to shipping. These units have been identified by serial number.
If in secure locked mode, two separate IP addresses will exist for the node: one accessible from the front TCC2P/TCC3 card and the other accessible from the rear backplane interface. Once in secure locked mode, the user cannot change the setting to use a single IP address for the node.
There is no workaround procedure identified for this issue. Cisco recommends that customers with affected hardware replace their units.
