Switch Hardware Failure

Switch Hardware Failure—Generates an alert when the switch hardware fails. The following are the typical hardware failures for Aruba and MAS switches:
1) Aruba switches

  • Fan failure
  • Power supply failure
  • Redundant power supply failure
  • High temperature
  • Management module failures—Management module failed self-test or lost communication with management module
  • Slot failure—Lost communications detected, slot self-test failure or unsupported module, or chassis hot swap failure
  • Fabric power failure
  • Internal power supply: Fan failure
  • Internal power supply failure
  • Internal power supply main PoE power failure
  • Internal power supply: Main inlet exceeds/within total fault count
  • Bad driver—Too many undersized/giant packets
  • Bad transceiver—Excessive jabbering
  • Bad cable—Excessive CRC/alignment errors
  • Too long cable—Excessive late collisions
  • Over bandwidth—High collision or drop rate
  • Broadcast storm—Excessive broadcasts
  • Duplex mismatch HDx—Duplex mismatch. Reconfigure to Full Duplex
  • Duplex mismatch FDx—Duplex mismatch. Reconfigure port to Auto
  • Link flap—Rapid detection of link faults and recoveries

2) MAS switches:

  • Fan failure
  • High temperature
