SUP 720 -3B Supervisor Engine Crashed

Yasir Irfan Yasir Irfan Profile: Yasir Irfan

In my previous post I talked about the crashed Sup 720- 3B supervisor Engine for a Cisco Catalyst 6513 Switch. Since there was no ray of hope for the SUP 720-3B Supervisor Engine and I couldn’t make use of “show tech” IOS command. I decided to open a TAC case with Cisco.

The TAC Engineer after studying the logs generated by the crashed Sup 720- 3B supervisor Engine came up with the following reply

“Hello Yasir

It seems we have faulty SUP and need to be replaced since it is keep crashing and not coming up.”

After looking at the log’s I predict there might be problem with flash memory of SUP 720 -3B Supervisor Engine.

System Bootstrap, Version 8.1(3)

rommon 1 >

I tried to boot the SUP 720-3B using the boot command from rommon mode but that too failed and I am getting the following error.

%DIAG-SP-6-RUN_MINIMUM: Module 7: Running Minimal Diagnostics…

Also I tried to boot the SUP 720-3B from the flash memory using the “bootflash:”command that too failed again I am getting the same error

This is why Cisco is a leader among its competitor and they are exceling because they are pioneers of Networking. I love Cisco for two reasons strong technical support and commitment they show to the customer.
