Cisco Industrial Security Appliances ISA-3000-2C2F-K9 and ISA-3000-4C-K9 might fail after 18 months or longer in operation due to a clock signal component failure.
A clock signal component manufactured by one supplier, and included in some Cisco products, has been seen to degrade over time in some units.
Although the Cisco products with these components are currently performing normally, we expect product failures to increase over the years, beginning after the unit has been in operation for approximately 18 months.
Once the component has failed, the system will stop functioning, will not boot, and is not recoverable.
To support our customers and partners, Cisco will replace products that have this component for those customers with products under warranty or covered by any valid service contract dated as of November 16, 2016.
These clock signal components are used by other companies and are included in a number of Cisco products.
Customers can learn more about this topic at http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/web/clock-signal.html
When this issue occurs, the product does not function properly, no console output appears, and the system fails to reboot.
If, after the CPU fails, the device is power cycled it will not boot, but will run in bypass mode if previously configured for bypass mode.
Customers with affected products (see the How To Identify Affected Products section) that are under warranty or covered by any valid service contract as of November 16, 2016 should go to the Clock Signal Component Issue page and follow the instructions in order to request replacements.
Due to the age-based nature of the failure and the volume of replacements, Cisco will prioritize orders based on the product's time in operation. Customers are reminded to return equipment promptly after replacement.
Note: There is no workaround for this issue.

How To Identify Affected Products
In order to verify if your product is affected by this issue, examine the Version ID (VID) number and/or Serial Number for the ISA3000.
Any devices with a VID number equal to or later than the 'Fixed Version ID' are not affected and do not need to be replaced.
Any devices with a VID number equal to or earlier than the 'Possibly Affected Version ID' are possibly affected. Use the Cisco Serial Number Validation Tool in order to validate your ISA3000 serial number(s).
The serial numbers for the affected devices should be included in the Replacement Product Order Spreadsheet. Cisco will determine if they are eligible for replacement.
||Possibly Affected Version ID
