Temp-minor error on 6509 blades.

Posted on 2006-05-22
Last Modified: 2010-08-05
Ok, no info on Cisco's site. I have not opened a TAC case yet. I've got a 6509 that has three different blades showing up with temp-minor when you do a sh env all. It's ice cold in the room, and the temps look fine. How to I reset that flag on the blade? There seems to be nothing wrong, but they are holding on to that temp-minor status - although they are all funtioning fine and are within temp ranges.

    Accepted Solution

    It may be ice cold in the room, but is the switch in a cabinet that needs more air exchange to get rid of the heat?  If the cabinet internals do feel cold, you probably need to open a TAC case to get the cards replaced; the consistency of the temperature levels suggests a cooling problem.

    You may also want to investigate switching to the high-speed fan tray for better internal air exchange.
