ACLMGR Messages

This section contains the access control list (ACL) manager messages. Most messages in this section are the result of a switch memory shortage, which includes hardware memory and label space but not CPU memory. Both kinds of memory shortages are described.

Error Message    ACLMGR-2-NOMAP: Cannot create ACL Manager data structures for VLAN Map 
[chars].

Explanation    This message means that the ACL manager was unable to allocate the data structures needed to describe a VLAN map in a form that can be loaded into hardware. This error is most likely caused by lack of free memory. [chars] is the VLAN map name.

Recommended Action    Reduce other system activity to ease memory demands.

Error Message    ACLMGR-2-NOVLB: Cannot create memory block for VLAN [dec]. 

Explanation    This message means that the ACL manager was unable to save per-VLAN information needed for its correct operation. Some per-interface features, such as access groups or VLAN maps, will not be configured correctly. [dec] is the VLAN number.

Recommended Action    Use a less complicated configuration that requires less memory.

Error Message    ACLMGR-2-NOVMR: Cannot create VMR data structures for access list 
[chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the ACL manager was unable to allocate the value-mask result (VMR) data structures needed to describe an ACL in a form that can be loaded into hardware. This error is most likely caused by lack of available memory. [chars] is the access-list name.

Recommended Action    Use a less complicated configuration that requires less memory.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-ACLTCAMFULL: Acl Tcam Full. Drop packets on Output Acl label 
[dec] on [chars] [chars].

Explanation    This message means that there are too many ACLs configured for the platform-specific ACL TCAM table to support. [dec] is the label number, and [chars] represents the layer. The first [chars] is for Layer 3; the second is for Layer 2. If only one layer of TCAM is full, only one string is displayed, and the other string is NULL.

Recommended Action    Reduce the number of IP or MAC access lists to be applied to interfaces.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-AUGMENTFAIL: Augmenting of access-map [chars] on [chars] 
label [dec] failed. 

Explanation    This message means that the system ran out of CPU DRAM when attempting to merge internally required elements with the configured access maps. The first [chars] is the access-map name, the second [chars] is the direction in which the map was applied (input or output), and [dec] is the label number.

Recommended Action    Reduce other system activity to ease memory demands.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-IECPORTLABELERROR: ACL labels are out-of-sync on interface 
[chars], label [dec] is not available on asic [dec].

Explanation    This message means that an internal software error has occurred. [chars] is the interface name. The first [dec] is the label associated with the ACL, and the second [dec] is the ASIC number.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-INSERTFAIL: Insert of access-map [chars] #[dec] into [chars] 
label [dec] failed. 

Explanation    This message means that the system ran out of CPU memory when trying to merge sections of an access map. The first [chars] is the map name, and the second [chars] is the direction in which the map was applied. The first [dec] is the entry number, and the second [dec] is the label number.

Recommended Action    Reduce other system activity to ease memory demands. For example, remove any ACLs that have been defined but are not now used. Use simpler ACLs with fewer access control entries (ACEs). Use fewer VLANs, and remove any unneeded VLANs from the VLAN database.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-INTTABLE: Not in truth table: VLMAP [dec] RACL [dec] Mcb [dec] 
Feat [dec].

Explanation    This message means that an unrecoverable software error occurred while trying to merge the configured input features. [dec] are internal action codes.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Enter the show running-config user EXEC command to gather data that might help identify the nature of the error. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-MAXRECURSION: Too many ([dec]) levels of recursion while 
merging ACLs (code [dec]). 

Explanation    This message means that the configuration is too complicated for the platform-specific ACL merge code to support. The most likely cause is too many separate access lists in a single VLAN map or policy map. The first [dec] is the number of levels of recursion. The second [dec] is an internal code number of the merge stage that encountered the problem.

Recommended Action    Reduce the number of IP or MAC access lists (considered separately) in any one VLAN or policy map to fewer than the number of levels reported by this log message.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-MERGEFAIL: [chars] ACL merge error [dec] ([chars]) on [chars] 
label [dec]. 

Explanation    This message means that the ACL manager was unable to complete the merge of the configured features into a form suitable for loading into the hardware. Packets potentially affected by this feature will be sent to the CPU for processing instead. The most likely cause is specifying an ACL that is too large or too complex for the system. The first [chars] is the ACL-type error (ip or mac), the first [dec] is the error code, the second [chars] is the message string for the preceding error code, the second [dec] is the label number, and the third [chars] is either input or output.

Recommended Action    Specify a smaller and less complicated configuration.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-NOLABEL: Cannot allocate [chars] label for interface [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the ACL manager was unable to allocate a label for the features on this interface. This means that the hardware cannot be programmed to implement the features, and packets for this interface will be filtered in software. There is a limit of 256 labels per direction. The first [chars] is the direction (input or output); the second [chars] is the interface name.

Recommended Action    Use a simpler configuration. Use the same ACLs on multiple interfaces, if possible.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-OUTTTABLE: Not in truth table: RACL [dec] VLMAP [dec].

Explanation    This message means that an unrecoverable software error occurred while trying to merge the configured output features. [dec] are internal action codes.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Enter the show running-config user EXEC command to gather data that might help identify the nature of the error. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-PACLTTABLE: Not in truth table: IPSrcGrd [dec] PACL [dec].

Explanation    This message means that an unrecoverable software error occurred while trying to merge the configured port ACL features. The first [dec] is the action specified by IP source guard, and the second [dec] is the action specified by the port ACL.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Enter the show running-config user EXEC command to gather data that might help identify the nature of the error. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-QOSTTABLE: Not in truth table: ACL [dec] in map, action [dec].

Explanation    This message means that a software error occurred while trying to merge a QoS policy map. The first [dec] is the ACL number, and the second [dec] is the action corresponding to the specified ACL number.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-RELOADED: Reloading [chars] label [dec] feature. 

Explanation    This message means that the ACL manager is now able to load more of the configured features on this label into the hardware. One or more features had previously been unloaded because of lack of space. [chars] is the direction (input or output), and [dec] is the label number.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    ACLMGR-3-UNKNOWNACTION: Unknown VMR access group action [hex].

Explanation    This message means that an internal software error has occurred. [hex] is an internal action code.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter.

Error Message    QOSMGR-4-POLICER_PLATFORM_NOT_SUPPORTED: Policer configuration has 
exceeded hardware limitation for policymap [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the policy-map configuration has exceeded the limitation of the hardware. You configured together more policers in all policy maps (by using the police or police aggregate policy-map class configuration command) than supported by hardware. [chars] is the policy-map name.

Recommended Action    Reconfigure the class maps or the policy maps, or delete the policy map from some interfaces.

Error Message    QOSMGR-4-POLICER_POLICY_NOT_SUPPORTED: Number of policers has exceeded 
per policy hardware limitation for policymap [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the policy-map configuration has exceeded the limitation of the hardware. You configured more policers in a policy map (by using the police or police aggregate policy-map class configuration command) than supported. [chars] is the policy-map name.

Recommended Action    Reconfigure the class map or the policy map, and reduce the number of policers.

Error Message    QOSMGR-4-QOSLABEL_EXCEED_MAX: Hardware limitation was reached for 
policymaps.

Explanation    This message means that the policy map configuration has exceeded the limitations of the hardware, specifically the number of QoS labels. The QoS label entries needed by this particular policy map configuration, along with the ones already allocated for any other policy maps attached to interfaces, cause the total number of required entries to exceed the limit supported by the hardware for the switch.

Recommended Action    Reconfigure the class map, reduce number of classes in the policy map, or reduce or reconfigure the actions associated with classes to reduce the number of QoS labels.

Error Message    QOSMGR-4-QOS_TCAM_RESOURCE_EXCEED_MAX: Exceeded a maximum of QoS TCAM 
resources.

Explanation    The number of QoS TCAM entries required for all attached QoS policies exceeds the maximum number of QoS TCAM entries.

Recommended Action    Reconfigure the class map or reduce the number of classes in the policy map to reduce the number of TCAM entries.

Error Message    QOSMGR-4-VLAN_LABEL_EXCEED_MAX: Exceeded a maximum of active vlan 
classifications.

Note This message applies only to the Cisco ME 3400 switch.


Explanation    The number of VLAN classifications required for all attached per-port, per-VLAN QoS policies exceeds the maximum number of VLAN classifications that are supported by this hardware.

Recommended Action    Reconfigure the attached per-port, per-vlan QoS policies to reduce the number of VLANs used for classification.

RMON Messages

This section contains the remote network monitoring (RMON) messages.

Error Message    RMON-5-FALLINGTRAP: Falling trap is generated because the value of 
[chars] has fallen below the falling-threshold value [dec].

Explanation    This message means that a falling trap has been generated. The value of the specified MIB object has fallen below the falling threshold value. [chars] is the MIB object, and [dec] is the threshold value.

Recommended Action    Take appropriate action on the specified MIB object.

Error Message    RMON-5-RISINGTRAP: Rising trap is generated because the value of 
[chars] exceeded the rising-threshold value [dec].

Explanation    This message means that a rising trap has been generated. The value of the specified MIB object has exceeded the rising threshold value. [chars] is the MIB object, and [dec] is the threshold value.

Recommended Action    Take appropriate action on the specified object.

SPAN Messages

This section contains the Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) messages.

Error Message    SPAN-3-MEM_UNAVAIL: Memory was not available to perform the SPAN 
operation. 

Explanation    This message means that the system was unable to perform a SPAN operation because of a lack of memory.

Recommended Action    Reduce other system activity to ease the memory demands.

Error Message    SPAN-3-UNKN_ERR: An internal error occurred during a SPAN operation. 

Explanation    This message means that SPAN detected an error in its internal operation.

Recommended Action    The error might be transient. Try the SPAN operation again. If a second attempt also fails, reload the switch by using the reload privileged EXEC command to complete the operation.

Error Message    SPAN-3-UNKN_ERR_PORT: An internal error occurred when configuring SPAN 
on port [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that SPAN detected an error in its internal operation. [chars] is the interface.

Recommended Action    The error might be transient. Try the SPAN operation again. If the second attempt also fails, reload the switch by using the reload privileged EXEC command to complete the operation.

SPANTREE Messages

This section contains the spanning-tree messages.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-BLOCK_BPDUGUARD: Received BPDU on port [chars] with BPDU 
Guard enabled. Disabling port. 

Explanation    This message means that a bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) was received on an interface that has the spanning tree BPDU guard feature enabled. As a result, the interface was administratively shut down. [chars] is the interface name.

Recommended Action    Either remove the device sending BPDUs, or disable the BPDU guard feature. The BPDU guard feature can be locally configured on the interface or globally configured on all ports that have PortFast enabled. To disable BPDU guard on an interface, use the no spanning-tree bpduguard enable interface configuration command. To disable BPDU guard globally, use the no spanning-tree portfast bpduguard default global configuration command. After you have removed the device or disabled BPDU guard, re-enable the interface by entering the no shutdown interface configuration command.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-BLOCK_PVID_LOCAL: Blocking [chars] on [chars]. Inconsistent 
local vlan. 

Explanation    This message means that the spanning-tree port associated with the listed spanning-tree instance and interface will be held in the spanning-tree blocking state until the port VLAN ID (PVID) inconsistency is resolved. The listed spanning-tree instance is that of the native VLAN ID of the listed interface. The first [chars] is the interface, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    Verify that the configuration of the native VLAN ID is consistent on the interfaces on each end of the 802.1Q trunk connection. When corrected, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interfaces, as appropriate.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-BLOCK_PVID_PEER: Blocking [chars] on [chars]. Inconsistent 
peer vlan. 

Explanation    This message means that the spanning-tree port associated with the listed spanning-tree instance and interface will be held in the spanning-tree blocking state until the port VLAN ID (PVID) inconsistency is resolved. The listed spanning-tree instance is that of the native VLAN ID of the interface on the peer switch to which the listed interface is connected. The first [chars] is the interface, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    Verify that the configuration of the native VLAN ID is consistent on the interfaces on each end of the 802.1Q trunk connection. When interface inconsistencies are corrected, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interfaces.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-CHNL_MISCFG: Detected loop due to etherchannel 
misconfiguration of [chars] [chars].

Explanation    This message means that a misconfiguration of a channel group has been detected. For example, the ports on one side of the EtherChannel either are not configured to be in the channel or failed to bundle into the channel and the other side has successfully bundled the ports into the EtherChannel. The first [chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the VLAN.

Recommended Action    Identify the local ports using the show interfaces status err-disabled privileged EXEC command, and then check the EtherChannel configuration on the remote device by using the show etherchannel summary privileged EXEC command on the remote device. After the configuration is correct, enter the shutdown and then no shutdown interface configuration commands on the associated port-channel interfaces.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-LOOPGUARD_BLOCK: Loop guard blocking port [chars] on 
[chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the spanning-tree message age timer has expired because no BPDUs were received from the designated bridge. Because this condition could be caused by a unidirectional-link failure, the interface is put into the blocking state and marked as loopguard-inconsistent to prevent possible loops from being created. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in the show spanning-tree privileged EXEC command.

Recommended Action    Enter the show spanning-tree inconsistentports privileged EXEC command to review the list of interfaces with loopguard inconsistencies. Find out why devices connected to the listed ports are not sending BPDUs. One reason might be that they are not running the STP. If so, you should disable loop guard on the inconsistent interfaces by using the spanning-tree guard none interface configuration command or by starting the STP on the remote side of the links.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-LOOPGUARD_CONFIG_CHANGE: Loop guard [chars] on port [chars] 
on [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the spanning-tree loopguard configuration for the listed interface has been changed. If enabled, the interface is placed into the blocking state. It is marked as loopguard-inconsistent when the message-age timer expires because no BPDUs were received from the designated bridge. This feature is mainly used to detect unidirectional links. The first [chars] is the loopguard state (enable or disable), the second [chars] is the interface name, and the third [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    Verify that this is the desired configuration for the listed interface. Correct it if this is not the desired configuration; otherwise, no further action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-LOOPGUARD_UNBLOCK: Loop guard unblocking port [chars] on 
[chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface has received a BPDU, and therefore, if the inconsistency was caused by a unidirectional link failure, the problem no longer exists. The loopguard-inconsistency is cleared for the interface, which is taken out of the blocking state, if appropriate. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in the show spanning-tree privileged EXEC command.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-PVSTSIM_FAIL: Superior PVST BPDU received on VLAN [dec] 
port [chars], claiming root [dec]:[enet]. Invoking root guard to block the port. 

Explanation    This message means that root guard blocked a port that might cause a spanning-tree loop. When a PVST+ switch is connected to an MST switch, the IST root (MSTOO) becomes the root for all PVST+ spanning trees. A loop can occur if any of the PVST+ spanning trees have a better root than IST. To prevent the loop, root guard blocks the port on the MST switch that receives the superior message from the PVST+ side. The first [dec] is the VLAN ID, [chars] is the short interface name, such as Gi0/1, the second [dec] is the root bridge priority, and [enet] is the root bridge MAC address.

Recommended Action    When spanning tree converges after a new switch or switch port is added to the topology, root guard might temporarily block the port and then automatically restore it. If the port remains blocked, identify the root bridge from this error message, and configure a less favorable priority for the VLAN spanning tree. There could be other superior PVST roots, and the port cannot recover until all such roots are cleared. Alternatively, try disabling and then enabling the VLAN port.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-RECV_1Q_NON_1QTRUNK: Received 802.1Q BPDU on non 802.1Q 
trunk [chars] [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface on which a Shared Spanning Tree Protocol (SSTP) BPDU was received was in trunk mode but was not using 802.1Q encapsulation. The first [chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the VLAN.

Recommended Action    Verify that the configuration and operational state of the listed interface and that of the interface to which it is connected are in the same mode (access or trunk). If the mode is trunk, verify that both interfaces have the same encapsulation (none or 802.1Q). When the encapsulation is consistent, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interface.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-RECV_BAD_TLV: Received SSTP BPDU with bad TLV on [chars] 
[chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface received an SSTP BPDU without the VLAN ID tag. The BPDU is discarded. The first [chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the VLAN that received the SSTP BPDU.

Recommended Action    If this message recurs, copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-RECV_PVID_ERR: Received BPDU with inconsistent peer vlan id 
[dec] on [chars] [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface received an SSTP BPDU that is tagged with a VLAN ID that does not match the VLAN ID on which the BPDU was received. This occurs when the native VLAN is not consistently configured on both ends of an 802.1Q trunk. [dec] is the VLAN ID, the first [chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the VLAN.

Recommended Action    Verify that the configurations of the native VLAN ID is consistent on the interfaces on each end of the 802.1Q trunk connection. When the configurations are consistent, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interfaces.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-ROOTGUARD_BLOCK: Root guard blocking port [chars] on 
[chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that on the listed interface a BPDU was received that advertises a superior spanning-tree root bridge (lower bridge ID, lower path cost, and so forth) than that in use. The interface is put into blocking state and marked as root-guard inconsistent to prevent a suboptimal spanning-tree topology from forming. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in the output of the show spanning-tree privileged EXEC command.

Recommended Action    Enter the show spanning-tree inconsistentports privileged EXEC command to review the list of interfaces with root-guard inconsistencies. Find out why devices connected to the listed ports are sending BPDUs with a superior root bridge, and take action to prevent more occurrences. When the inaccurate BPDUs have been stopped, the interfaces automatically recover and resume normal operation. Make sure that it is appropriate to have root guard enabled on the interface.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-ROOTGUARD_CONFIG_CHANGE: Root guard [chars] on port [chars] 
on [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the spanning-tree root guard configuration for the listed interface has changed. If enabled, any BPDU received on this interface that advertises a superior spanning-tree root bridge (lower bridge ID, lower path cost, and so forth) to that already in use causes the interface to be put into the blocking state and marked as root-guard inconsistent. The first [chars] is the root-guard state (enable or disable), the second [chars] is the interface, and the third [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    Verify that this is the desired configuration for the listed interface. Correct it if it is not the desired configuration; otherwise, no action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-ROOTGUARD_UNBLOCK: Root guard unblocking port [chars] on 
[chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface is no longer receiving BPDUs advertising a superior root bridge (lower bridge ID, lower path cost, and so forth). The root-guard inconsistency is cleared for the interface, and the blocking state is removed from the interface. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in show spanning-tree privileged EXEC command.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-2-UNBLOCK_CONSIST_PORT: Unblocking [chars] on [chars]. Port 
consistency restored. 

Explanation    This message means that the port VLAN ID or port type inconsistencies have been resolved and spanning tree will unblock the listed interface of the listed spanning-tree instance as appropriate. The first [chars] is the interface, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-3-BAD_PORTNUM_SIZE: Rejected an attempt to set the port 
number field size to [dec] bits (valid range is [dec] to [dec] bits). 

Explanation    This message means that an error occurred in the platform-specific code that caused it to request more or less bits than are possible. The spanning-tree port identifier is a 16-bit field, which is divided evenly between the port priority and port number, with each subfield being 8 bits. This allows the port number field to represent port numbers between 1 and 255. However, on systems with more than 255 ports, the size of port number portion of the port ID must be increased to support the number of ports. This is performed by the spanning-tree subsystem at system initialization because the maximum number of ports on a particular platform will not change. This error occurs because of an error in the platform-specific code, which causes it to request more or less bits than are possible. The first [dec] is the number of bits for the port number, and the second and third [dec] describe the valid range.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Enter the show version user EXEC command to gather data that might help identify the nature of the error. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    SPANTREE-3-PORT_SELF_LOOPED: [chars] disabled.- received BPDU src mac 
([enet]) same as that of interface. 

Explanation    This message means that a BPDU was received on the listed interface with a source MAC address that matches the one assigned to the listed interface. This means that a port might be looped back to itself, possibly because of an installed diagnostic cable. The interface will be administratively shut down. [chars] is the interface that received the BPDU, and [enet] is the source MAC address.

Recommended Action    Check the interface configuration and any cable connected to the interface. When the problem is resolved, re-enable the interface by entering the no shutdown interface configuration command.

Error Message    SPANTREE-4-PORT_NOT_FORWARDING: [chars] [chars] [chars] [chars].

Explanation    This message appears when a port-not-forwarding alarm is set or cleared. The first [chars] is the mode (for example, assert or clear), and the second [chars] is the severity (for example, minor). The third [chars] is the interface name, and the fourth [chars] is the alarm string (for example, port not forwarding).

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the "Error Message Traceback Reports" section on page 1-4.

Error Message    SPANTREE-5-EXTENDED_SYSID: Extended SysId [chars] for type [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that the extended system ID feature is either enabled or disabled for the given type of spanning tree. If enabled, the spanning-tree instance identifier is stored in the lower portion of the bridge ID priority field and limits the allowed values for the bridge priority from 0 to 61440, in increments of 4096. If disabled, the bridge ID priority field consists only of the configured priority, but some spanning-tree features might not be available on a given platform (for example, support for 4096 VLANs). On some platforms, this feature might be mandatory. The first [chars] is the extended system ID state (enable or disable), and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-5-ROOTCHANGE: Root Changed for [chars] [dec]: New Root Port 
is [chars]. New Root Mac Address is [enet]. 

Explanation    This message means that the root switch changed for a spanning-tree instance. The first [chars] and [dec] is the interface ID for the previous root port, the second [chars] is the interface ID for the new root port, and [enet] is the Ethernet address of the new root port.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-5-TOPOTRAP: Topology Change Trap for [chars] [dec]. 

Explanation    This message means that a trap was generated because of a topology change in the network.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-6-PORT_STATE: Port [chars] instance [dec] moving from [chars] 
to [chars].

Explanation    This message means that the port state changed. The first [chars] is the interface name. [dec] is the spanning-tree instance ID. The second [chars] is the old state (such as listening, learning, or forwarding, and so forth), and the third [chars] is the new state.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-7-BLOCK_PORT_TYPE: Blocking [chars] on [chars]. Inconsistent 
port type. 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface is being held in the spanning-tree blocking state until the port-type inconsistency is resolved. The first [chars] is the interface, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action    Verify that the configuration and operational states of the listed interface and those of the interface to which it is connected are in the same mode (access or trunk). If the mode is trunk, verify that both interfaces have the same encapsulation (none or 802.1Q). When these parameters are consistent, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interface.

Error Message    SPANTREE-7-PORTDEL_SUCCESS: [chars] deleted from Vlan [dec]. 

Explanation    This message means that the interface has been deleted from VLAN. [chars] is the interface, and [dec] is the VLAN ID.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

Error Message    SPANTREE-7-RECV_1Q_NON_TRUNK: Received 802.1Q BPDU on non trunk 
[chars] [chars]. 

Explanation    This message means that an SSTP BPDU was received on the listed interface, which is not an operational trunking interface. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the VLAN name.

Recommended Action    Verify that the configuration and operational state of the listed interface and that of the interface to which it is connected are in the same mode (access or trunk). If the mode is trunk, verify that both interfaces have the same encapsulation (none or 802.1Q). When these parameters are consistent, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interface.

SPANTREE_FAST Messages

This section contains the spanning-tree fast-convergence message.

Error Message    SPANTREE_FAST-7-PORT_FWD_UPLINK: [chars] [chars] moved to Forwarding 
(UplinkFast). 

Explanation    This message means that the listed interface has been selected as the new path to the root switch for the listed spanning-tree instance. The first [chars] is the spanning-tree instance, and the second [chars] is the interface.

Recommended Action    No action is required.

SPANTREE_VLAN_SW Messages

The section contains the per-VLAN spanning-tree-specific message.

Error Message    SPANTREE_VLAN_SW-2-MAX_INSTANCE: Platform limit of [dec] STP instances 
exceeded. No instance created for [chars] (port [chars]). 

Explanation    This message means that the number of currently active VLAN spanning-tree instances has reached a platform-specific limit. No additional VLAN instances will be created until the number of existing instances drops below the platform limit. [dec] is the spanning-tree instance limit, and the first [chars] is the smallest VLAN number of those VLANs that are unable to have spanning-tree instances created.

Recommended Action    Reduce the number of currently active spanning-tree instances by either disabling some of the currently active spanning-tree instances or deleting the VLANs associated with them. You must manually enable the spanning trees that could not be created because of limited instances.

STORM_CONTROL Messages

This section contains the storm control messages.

Error Message    STORM_CONTROL-3-FILTERED: A [chars] storm detected on [chars]. A 
packet filter action has been applied on the interface.

Explanation    This message means that the amount of traffic detected on the interface has exceeded the configured threshold values. The system is filtering the excess traffic. The first [chars] is the traffic type, and the second [chars] is the interface.

Recommended Action    Determine and fix the root cause of the excessive traffic on the interface.

Error Message    STORM_CONTROL-3-SHUTDOWN: A packet storm was detected on [chars]. The 
interface has been disabled.

Explanation    This message means that the amount of traffic detected on the interface has exceeded the configured threshold values. Since the interface is configured to shutdown if a packet storm event is detected, it has been placed in an error-disabled state. [chars] is the affected interface.

Recommended Action    You can enable error-disabled recovery by using the errdisable recovery global configuration command to automatically re-enable the interface. You should determine and fix the root cause of the excessive traffic on the interface.

SUPERVISOR Messages

This section contains the supervisor ASIC message. This ASIC controls the CPU and the switch send and receive ports.
