I would like to know if some of you have ever experienced a problem when configuring through the console that sometimes it doesn't respond and you must reboot the switch in oder to have again the console CLI working. Do you know a way to fix this behavior in the switch? could it be a compatibility problem with the terminal emulator software that i use (PuTTy)? .
I recently have this problem with a customer , the switch model is a summit X670-G2 with 22.214.171.124 firmware and also it happened with a summit X670-G2 with 126.96.36.199 patch 1-9 firmware. SInce they want to use these switches as Core , it's very difficult to explain them why this happened .
I Hope that my description is clear enough , perhaps there is some grammar mistakes since english is not my native language , just let me know if you need some details .
I could not locate any known issues in those versions of software with the 670G2 platform. Here is a few things to try to narrow down the issue.
1. Try a different emulator such as securecrt, or tera term
2. Change console cable (usb dongle if in use and rj-45cable)
3. Check CPU via "top" command to make sure cpu is normal
4. Check serial settings are correct:
• Baud rate—9600
• Data bits—8
• Stop bit—1
• Flow control—XON/XOFF
5. connect via telnet or ssh and see if issue follows.
We've had the issue a few times with x460-48p switches. Console was working then it stopped for unknown reasons. We tried different laptops thinking it was an issue with them, but that didn't work either. The switch was accessible over the network so we ssh'd into it but console wouldn't work. I couldn't see anything in the logs that gave a reason for the console, though later in the day the stack fully stopped responding and we had to hard boot the entire stack, that reboot then resolved the console problem.
These are the messages we received when the entire stack stopped responding, which is different than you are reporting I know. Not sure if related. Slot 1 was our master and where we were consoling in to. But short and long of it, yes, we have that problem on occasion too, the console locks up.
