4104 switch is continuously rebooting

The switch originally had 3x6port modules in it with of the bays dead(a module could not work in there).

I got a 20port gl module (J4908A), put it in one of the working bays and it killed that bay.

As of right now I only have two working bays in the switch.

Whenever I put the 20port module into a functional bay the "fault" led would say that it was not accepted. This is after a few reboots.

I upgraded the firmware to the latest revision (7.93) via xmodem/hyperterminal. Upon reboot it continuously reboots now with only a 15 second window in the CLI.

The ROM revision is 5.02.

Any thoughts?

Call HP and have it replaced? AFAIK procurve devices are lifetime warranty ;-)

What happens, if the j490Ã is alone in the SWITCH Chassis without another module?

From which version you have upgraded to version 7.93. in some fell are necessary part upgrades.

Re: 4104 switch is continuously rebooting

I forgot what I upgraded from.

I took out all of the modules, save the 20-port.

It is working properly without power-cycling and whatnot.

Would it help if I upgraded the ROM?

How would I go about doing that?

Thanks!

Re: 4104 switch is continuously rebooting

I put the two other modules back in. Now everything is working perfectly. I still think I have a dead bay--but I only have 3 modules(and all of their bays are working), so I can live with that fact for a while.

I'm going to open this back up.

It now is power cycling again when a unit is plugged into any port of any module.

It has power/fault/self/test/statuslight/ lights on. Then it goes to portLights/powerlight/self test/moduleson/Act.

It repeats this pattern as before.

Re: 4104 switch is continuously rebooting

Has it come down to replacing the whole switch or do you think a ROM flash will do it?

How would I go about that?
