Upon boot-up (cold or reload) the switch is failing to initialize the PoE module.  Is there anything I can try to resolve this?

Good afternoon Shane. Sorry to hear you are having PoE issues with your ICX6610. If you have already tried to reload the unit with no success, I would advise trying to re-install the PoE Firmware. I am not sure the version you are running, but you can just download the file from the Ruckus website, locate the file in a TFTP server and run the command below:

 

- device # inline power install-firmware stack-unit 1 tftp <TFTP IP Address> <File Name>

 

It could be that the Firmware is corrupted and re-installing it will help.

 

If no luck with that, please run the command “show inline power detail” and open a case with TAC for further support.

 

Hope this information helps. Have a great day.

Hi Shane,
Please try to upgrade to the latest code train for the version of code you are running.
If the upgrade does not work please open a case with Ruckus TAC to replace the switch. 

I recommend doing an upgrade of the boot code, the image version and the POE firmware to latest version on your code stream for example for 8030 code 8030s to try to recover the POE.

If the upgrade does not work then you will need to proceed by replacing the switch.

Here is how to perform an upgrade with a TFTP server.

1) Go to the Ruckus site https://support.ruckuswireless.com/ and download the software to your desktop and un-compress the files. We need to s

2) We need a TFTP server installed to copy the files.

3) Make sure your tftp server has IP connectivity to the Switch and has the files in the root directory of TFTP Server.

4) From the switch run the following commands:

For the boot:

Switch# copy tftp flash <ip address of the tftp server> <file name> bootrom

Once it is copied, you can continue with the image:

Switch# copy tftp flash <ip address of the tftp server> <file name> primary

(Either the primary or secondary partition need to be selected.)

Once the files are copied you need to save the configuration by running the “write memory" command

Then we need to make sure that the system will boot from where you copied the files to, by running the following command:

Switch#(config) boot system flash primary or Switch#(config) boot system flash secondary.

Switch#(config) write memory

Switch# reload (this will restart the switch) SO please make sure you have a downtime arranged before running this command.

Finally, you can confirm that the system boots using the new software by issuing the command: “show version “

 POE FIRMWARE UPGRADE

1)  Download the PoE firmware to a TFTP server

2)  We need to be able to ping the IP address of the TFTP server from the switch.

3)  Enter the following command:

Switch# inline power install-firmware stack-unit 1 tftp a.b.c.d <file name>

In the example above the letter "a.b.c.d" is IP address of the tftp server and then we enter the file name containing (_poeplus_02.1.0.b002.fw) and click enter.

4) We need to save the configuration by issuing the command "write memory" from privilege mode.

Switch#write memory

Hi Shane,
If you run command: "show inline power detail" and "show inline power detail debug-info"  do you see the POE version for the POE chip.  If you do not see the POE chip and it's hardware version in above commands most likely the POE has been busted.  In that case you will need RMA.

Seems like Power supplies are OK but not sure about POE chip showing with the  above command.


I think this might be a damaged POE chip as you got the latest firmware as well.

Please  open  a ticket and request RMA and provide the outputs I requested as well the mention you went to latest 8030 code.

Do me a huge favor...  Do a "sh chassis"

I have had an ICX 6430-48P a couple years ago that had a PoE failure, and the power supply showed as bad under the "sh chassis"

Let's just rule that out, first... because those are less effort to replace than the entire switch chassis.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to RMA it because it was purchased used.  I was hoping there was something that could be done but after all the help so far, concerning this issue, it just wan't meant to be.  Thank you everyone.

Gosh... Have you tried engaging the seller then?  I have always worked for the initial purchaser, who is my employer, but if I were a seller and this happened, I would probably RMA it for you at most charging you shipping.

Ruckus actually covers the shipping in our case they send the replacement with a return label.  That said, we have had very few devices fail overall...  Not a single 6610 at this point in time *knocks on wood*
