Hi, Alberto.

Hardware failure is a likely possibility here.
Please open a case with the GTAC for assistance with this.

Thank you.
Ok. Thanks. I am trying to open a case GTAC, but it is off line. As I beleive, C3 switch customers has lifetime warranty. Here in my company we have hardware and software skills, only need a little help for fixing the switch. Albert

I have just tested the link to be working, and on the resulting page it has an Open Technical Support case option.

Fast-forwarding past this secondary issue, please email your contact and company information to me at, and I'll get a case opened for you.

Thank you.
