HP 5406zl Lockup Lights Solid

I have an HP switch 5406zl with PoE modules. The unit locks up the network randomly (several times a week). All the active ports lights (mode / link) are solid with no blinking. Most of the time reboot the switch clears the problem. On occasion it boots to a lock mode immediately.

Any help with the problems.

Re: HP 5406zl Lockup Lights Solid

Hi, please provide all possible details to help diagnose the issue your Switch is experiencing (as example: Switch's logs, Switch's configuration/running configuration, these ones sanitized outputs - I mean: remove any serial numbers or any other details you feel should not be released to public - of various typical CLI show based commands...related to flash, software version, installed modules, poe statuses...).

Have you checked your network for any physical (sometime: user generated) loop? is Power Supply OK? what's about Switch's log (CLI)? What is your network topology? was there any change in the Switch's configuration lately?

Help the HPE Community to help you...provide info: it's quite hard to guess what is happening (or what happened) to your Switch by knowing just a LED status description.

Re: HP 5406zl Lockup Lights Solid

Our network has this HP core switch with 2 fiber runs to two building wings. There is a 3Com Superstack 4400 at one end, and a TP-Link switch at the other end. The TP-Link connects to an Engenius POE switch via copper Ethernet. The core switch has a couple Dell servers, an Aruba wireless switch, and a couple routers attached. I will attach a diagram. 

The lockup problem was present about every 3-4 weeks a year ago, then became a weekly occurrence. At times we rebooted twice a day, then we go for a week without an issue. A 3Com switch failed last week, and was replaced with the Engenius switch.

Here is the running configuration file.

Re: HP 5406zl Lockup Lights Solid

Those log lines look like a bunch of PCs coming up simultaneously, as if something has just been switched on?

Did the lockup happen immediately after those lines were logged?

Can you still log into the switch when it's "locked up"?

If so, what does a show lldp neighbor tell you at that time?

What about CPU and MEM stats?

What about port traffic stats?

Do you have STP, BPDU guard and loop-protect configured on all the switchports that are pacthed to all those ports that come up immediately prior to a lockup?

Do you have a performance monitoring tool such as Solarwinds?
