Preface

Obtaining Additional Publications and Information

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

System Message Overview

C H A P T E R

1

This guide describes the Catalyst 3750-specific system messages. During operation, the system software sends these messages to the console (and, optionally, to a logging server on another system). Not all system messages indicate problems with your system. Some messages are purely informational, whereas others can help diagnose problems with communications lines, internal hardware, or the system software. This guide also includes error messages that appear when the system fails.

Note For information about system messages that are not Catalyst 3750 platform-specific, see the Cisco IOS

Software System Messages for Cisco IOS Release 12.2S

.

This chapter contains these sections:

How to Read System Messages, page 1-1

Error Message Traceback Reports, page 1-5

How to Read System Messages

System log messages can contain up to 80 characters and a percent sign (%), which follows the optional sequence number or time stamp information, if configured. Messages are displayed in this format: seq no:timestamp: %facility-severity-MNEMONIC:description (hostname-n)

By default, a switch sends the output from system messages to a logging process. In a switch stack, stack members append their hostnames to the output from system messages and redirect the output to the logging process on the stack master.

Each system message begins with a percent sign (%) and is structured as follows:

%FACILITY-SEVERITY-MNEMONIC: Message-text

• FACILITY is a code consisting of two or more uppercase letters that show the facility to which the message refers. A facility can be a hardware device, a protocol, or a module of the system software.

Table 1-1

lists Catalyst 3750-specific facility codes. These messages are described in

Chapter 2,

“Message and Recovery Procedures,”

in alphabetical order by facility code with the most severe

(lowest number) errors described first.

Message that appears during debugging only.

MNEMONIC is a code that uniquely identifies the message.

Message-text is a text string describing the condition. This portion of the message sometimes contains detailed information about the event, including terminal port numbers, network addresses, or addresses that correspond to locations in the system memory address space. Because the information in these variable fields changes from message to message, it is represented here by short strings enclosed in square brackets ([ ]). A decimal number, for example, is represented as [dec].

Table 1-3 lists the variable fields in messages.

All syslog messages generated by a switch other than the master switch are displayed ending with

( Switch-x ) where Switch-x is the number of the stack member generating the message. Syslog messages generated by the master switch are displayed with no hostname string.

This example shows a partial switch system message for a stack master and a stack member switch

(hostname Switch-2 ):

Error Message Traceback Reports

Some messages describe internal errors and contain traceback information. This information is very important and should be included when you report a problem to your technical support representative.

This message example includes traceback information:

-Process= "Exec", level= 0, pid= 17

-Traceback= 1A82 1AB4 6378 A072 1054 1860

Some system messages ask you to copy the error messages and take further action. These online tools also provide more information about system error messages.

Output Interpreter

The Output Interpreter provides additional information and suggested fixes based on the output of many

CLI commands, such as the the show tech-support privileged EXEC command. You can access the

Output Interpreter at this URL: https://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/OutputInterpreter/home.pl

Bug Toolkit

The Bug Toolkit provides information on open and closed caveats, and allows you to search for all known bugs in a specific Cisco IOS Release. You can access the Bug Toolkit at this URL: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/home.pl

ACLMGR Messages

Error Message ACLMGR-2-NOMAP: Cannot create ACL Manager data structures for VLAN Map

[chars].

Explanation This message means that the ACL manager was unable to allocate the data structures needed to describe a VLAN map in a form that can be loaded into hardware. This error is most likely caused by lack of free memory. [chars] is the VLAN map name.

Recommended Action Reduce other system activity to ease memory demands.

Error Message ACLMGR-2-NOVLB: Cannot create memory block for VLAN [dec].

Explanation This message means that the ACL manager was unable to save per-VLAN information needed for its correct operation. Some per-interface features, such as access groups or VLAN maps, will not be configured correctly. [dec] is the VLAN number.

Recommended Action Use a less complicated configuration that requires less memory.

Error Message ACLMGR-2-NOVMR: Cannot create VMR data structures for access list

[chars].

Explanation This message means that the ACL manager was unable to allocate the value-mask result

(VMR) data structures needed to describe an ACL in a form that can be loaded into hardware. This error is most likely caused by lack of available memory. [chars] is the access-list name.

Recommended Action Use a less complicated configuration that requires less memory.

Error Message ACLMGR-3-ACLTCAMFULL: Acl Tcam Full. Drop packets on Output Acl label

[dec] on [chars] [chars].

Explanation This message means that there are too many ACLs configured for the platform-specific

ACL TCAM table to support. [dec] is the label number, and [chars] represents the layer. The first

[chars] is for Layer 3; the second for Layer 2. If only one layer of TCAM is full, only one string is displayed, and the other string is NULL.

Recommended Action Reduce the number of IP or MAC access lists to be applied to interfaces.

Error Message ACLMGR-3-AUGMENTFAIL: Augmenting of access-map [chars] on [chars] label [dec] failed.

Explanation This message means that the system ran out of CPU DRAM when attempting to merge internally required elements with the configured access maps. The first [chars] is the access-map name, the second [chars] is the direction in which the map was applied ( input or output ), and [dec] is the label number.

Recommended Action Reduce other system activity to ease memory demands.

Explanation This message means that the listed interface has received a BPDU, and therefore, if the inconsistency was caused by a unidirectional link failure, the problem no longer exists. The loopguard-inconsistency is cleared for the interface, which is taken out of the blocking state, if appropriate. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in the show spanning-tree privileged EXEC command.

Recommended Action No action is required.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-PVSTSIM_FAIL: Superior PVST BPDU received on VLAN [dec] port [chars], claiming root [dec]:[enet]. Invoking root guard to block the port.

Explanation This message means that root guard blocked a port that might cause a spanning-tree loop. When a PVST+ switch is connected to an MST switch, the IST root (MSTOO) becomes the root for all PVST+ spanning trees. A loop can occur if any of the PVST+ spanning trees have a better root than IST. To prevent the loop, root guard blocks the port on the MST switch that receives the superior message from the PVST+ side. The first [dec] is the VLAN ID, [chars] is the short interface name, such as Gi1/0/1, the second [dec] is the root bridge priority, and [enet] is the root bridge MAC address.

Recommended Action When spanning tree converges after a new switch or switch port is added to the topology, root guard might temporarily block the port and then automatically restore it. If the port remains blocked, identify the root bridge from this error message, and configure a less favorable priority for the VLAN spanning tree. There could be other superior PVST roots, and the port cannot recover until all such roots are cleared. Alternatively, try disabling and then enabling the VLAN port.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-RECV_1Q_NON_1QTRUNK: Received 802.1Q BPDU on non 802.1Q trunk [chars] [chars].

Explanation This message means that the listed interface on which a Shared Spanning Tree Protocol

(SSTP) BPDU was received was in trunk mode but was not using 802.1Q encapsulation. The first

[chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the VLAN.

Recommended Action Verify that the configuration and operational state of the listed interface and that of the interface to which it is connected are in the same mode ( access or trunk ). If the mode is trunk, verify that both interfaces have the same encapsulation ( ISL or 802.1Q

). If the encapsulation types are different, use the switchport trunk encapsulation interface configuration command to make them consistent. When the encapsulation is consistent, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interface.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-RECV_BAD_TLV: Received SSTP BPDU with bad TLV on [chars]

[chars].

Explanation This message means that the listed interface received an SSTP BPDU without the

VLAN ID tag. The BPDU is discarded. The first [chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the

VLAN that received the SSTP BPDU.

Recommended Action If this message recurs, copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log. Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-RECV_PVID_ERR: Received BPDU with inconsistent peer vlan id

[dec] on [chars] [chars].

Explanation This message means that the listed interface received an SSTP BPDU that is tagged with a VLAN ID that does not match the VLAN ID on which the BPDU was received. This occurs when the native VLAN is not consistently configured on both ends of an 802.1Q trunk. [dec] is the VLAN

ID, the first [chars] is the port, and the second [chars] is the VLAN.

Recommended Action Verify that the configurations of the native VLAN ID is consistent on the interfaces on each end of the 802.1Q trunk connection. When the configurations are consistent, spanning tree automatically unblocks the interfaces.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-ROOTGUARD_BLOCK: Root guard blocking port [chars] on

[chars].

Explanation This message means that on the listed interface a BPDU was received that advertises a superior spanning-tree root bridge (lower bridge ID, lower path cost, and so forth) than that in use.

The interface is put into blocking state and marked as root-guard inconsistent to prevent a suboptimal spanning-tree topology from forming. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second

[chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in the output of the show spanning-tree privileged

EXEC command.

Recommended Action Enter the show spanning-tree inconsistentports privileged EXEC command to review the list of interfaces with root-guard inconsistencies. Find out why devices connected to the listed ports are sending BPDUs with a superior root bridge, and take action to prevent more occurrences. When the inaccurate BPDUs have been stopped, the interfaces automatically recover and resume normal operation. Make sure that it is appropriate to have root guard enabled on the interface.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-ROOTGUARD_CONFIG_CHANGE: Root guard [chars] on port [chars] on [chars].

Explanation This message means that the spanning-tree root guard configuration for the listed interface has changed. If enabled, any BPDU received on this interface that advertises a superior spanning-tree root bridge (lower bridge ID, lower path cost, and so forth) to that already in use

Recommended Action Verify that this is the desired configuration for the listed interface. Correct it if it is not the desired configuration; otherwise, no action is required.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-ROOTGUARD_UNBLOCK: Root guard unblocking port [chars] on

[chars].

Explanation This message means that the listed interface is no longer receiving BPDUs advertising a superior root bridge (lower bridge ID, lower path cost, and so forth). The root-guard inconsistency is cleared for the interface, and the blocking state is removed from the interface. The first [chars] is the port name, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree mode displayed in show spanning-tree privileged EXEC command.

Recommended Action No action is required.

Error Message SPANTREE-2-UNBLOCK_CONSIST_PORT: Unblocking [chars] on [chars]. Port consistency restored.

Explanation This message means that the port VLAN ID or port type inconsistencies have been resolved and spanning tree will unblock the listed interface of the listed spanning-tree instance as appropriate. The first [chars] is the interface, and the second [chars] is the spanning-tree instance.

Recommended Action No action is required.

Error Message SPANTREE-3-BAD_PORTNUM_SIZE: Rejected an attempt to set the port number field size to [dec] bits (valid range is [dec] to [dec] bits).

Explanation This message means that an error occurred in the platform-specific code that caused it to request more or less bits than are possible. The spanning-tree port identifier is a 16-bit field, which is divided evenly between the port priority and port number, with each subfield being 8 bits.

This allows the port number field to represent port numbers between 1 and 255. However, on systems with more than 255 ports, the size of port number portion of the port ID must be increased to support the number of ports. This is performed by the spanning-tree subsystem at system initialization because the maximum number of ports on a particular platform will not change. This error occurs because of an error in the platform-specific code, which causes it to request more or less bits than are possible. The first [dec] is the number of bits for the port number, and the second and third [dec] describe the valid range.

Recommended Action Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log.

Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Enter the show version user EXEC command to gather data that might help identify the nature of the error. Use the Bug

Error Message VQPCLIENT-2-PROCFAIL: Could not create process for VQP. Quitting.

Explanation This message means that an error occurred while creating a process for the VQP client.

Recommended Action Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log.

Research and attempt to resolve the error by using the Output Interpreter. Use the Bug Toolkit to look for similar reported problems. If you still require assistance, open a case with the TAC, or contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered

information. For more information about these online tools and about contacting Cisco, see the “Error

Message Traceback Reports” section on page 1-5 .

Error Message VQPCLIENT-2-SHUTDOWN: Interface [chars] shutdown by VMPS.

Explanation This message means that the VMPS has directed that an interface be shut down. [chars] is the interface name.

Recommended Action No action is normally required. If you think that the port should not have been shut down, verify the configuration on the VMPS.

Error Message VQPCLIENT-2-TOOMANY: Interface [chars] shutdown by active host limit.

Explanation This message means that the system has shut down an interface because too many hosts have requested access to that port. [chars] is the interface name.

Recommended Action To reactivate the port, remove the excess hosts, and enter a no shutdown interface configuration command on the interface.

Error Message VQPCLIENT-3-IFNAME: Invalid interface ([chars]) in response.

Explanation This message means that the VMPS has sent an unsolicited response with an unknown interface name. [chars] is the name of the unknown interface.

Recommended Action Verify the VMPS configuration.

Error Message VQPCLIENT-3-THROTTLE: Throttling VLAN change on [chars].

Explanation This message means that an attempt was made to change the VLAN assignment for an interface more often than once every 10 seconds. The VLAN change is denied. [chars] is the interface name.

Recommended Action No action is normally required. If the message recurs, verify the VMPS configuration. Verify that unexpected hosts are not connected to the port.

Error Message VQPCLIENT-3-VLANNAME: Invalid VLAN ([chars]) in response.

Explanation This message means that the VMPS has specified a VLAN name that is unknown to the switch. [chars] is the invalid VLAN name.

Recommended Action Make sure that the VLAN exists on the switch. Verify the VMPS configuration.

Explanation This message means that the system has lost connectivity with the current VMPS and is changing to the next server in its list. [IP_address] is the address of the next server in the list.

Recommended Action This is a debug message only. No action is required.

Error Message VQPCLIENT-7-PROBE: Probing primary server [IP_address].

Explanation This message means that the system is trying to reestablish connectivity with the primary VMPS at the given IP address.

Recommended Action This is a debug message only. No action is required.

Error Message VQPCLIENT-7-RECONF: Reconfirming VMPS responses.

Explanation This message means that the switch is reconfirming all responses with the VMPS.

Recommended Action This is a debug message only. No action is required.
