Cisco 2960S with Axis IP Cameras (POE) stops video feed, but still pingable
Posted on 2014-03-10
I have a bit of an odd issue going on and not sure where to look at the moment. We currently have about 60 Axis M3005 IP cameras spread across multiple Cisco 2060S's that receive power from the 2960S and works fine for some time. However over time, it seems randomly, that the cameras themselves look all responsiveness but pinging.
I am not able to access them via http, telnet, etc but can ping them all day long. I see no interface resets, no errors, no power cutting off (of course cause they are still pinging) Here is the kicker, in order to get them up and running, I have to login and reboot the ports with a shut no shut command and the camera will come back up fine.
To add to the madness, it's very sporadic and sometimes the same or different camera throughout the week. Doesn't seem to be a repetitive occurrence.
Could of notes:
Port is set to auto (1 Gbps, cameras are 100 Mbps
All cisco switches have the exact same config on access vlan 203
Anybody have any idea what the problem could be or any resolution they have come across?
