If a 7G-6MGBIC(-A) is improperly installed, a DFE switch either may not properly boot, or will not properly recognize the 7G-6MGBIC(-A) ports.
The following three sets of symptoms have been observed, though this should not be considered to be an all-inclusive list:
- The host switch fully boots, but the 7G-MGBIC(-A) ports are not listed in the results of a 'show port' command, and they do not function. [/code]
- The host switch enters a constant reboot cycle, with the error message Empire Initialization Failed [/code]
- The host switch fails to fully boot, with the error sequence Running Initialization Diagnostics... FAILED. Device Name: Switch Ports Test Name: Cnx Based Internal Serpentine 10/1000 Mbps PHY Lpbk Test Result: Failed Function Name: lpbkDiag() Error Description: Timeout (loop=1, data=012, block=0, port=0, len=64). Ucast pkt count error on MAC 2, port 0 (Rx=0, Tx=0).[/code]
If any boot anomalies or 7G-6MGBIC(-A) functionality issues are seen, after recently installing a 7G-6MGBIC(-A) or its host DFE switch, check the installation of the 7G-MGBIC(-A):
- Remove the DFE switch from the chassis (using proper removal procedure 5036)
- Using ESD (electro-static discharge) precautions, examine the two rectangular black connectors where the 7G-6MGBIC(-A) connects electrically with the host switch's circuit board
- Ensure that these connectors are fully engaged and locked
- Ensure that the three securing screws are properly seated
- Reinstall the DFE switch into the chassis
