Unable to read Slot

Hi Community,

I have an FastIron SX 1600 Chassie with 1 x Management Card and 1 x 24-port C module without an EPROM.

The Switch shows me at the boot following error message:

Unable to read slot 8 EEPROM... please re-insert the line card in slot 8

Unable to read slot 8 EEPROM... please re-insert the line card in slot 8

Error during powering on the module at slot 8.

I know its possible to start without an EPROM, but how? I already tried an other 24-Port C Module but there is the same Problem.

I hope my Question is right here..if not pls move to the right Section.

and

I hope someone can help me with my issue

Thanks and best regards.

Re: Unable to read Slot

Can you give the output of sh chassis?

It could be that there not enough power for the module.

Re: Unable to read Slot

Thanks for your response.

i opened an Ticket now.

It seems like that the LineCard is faulty. I put the LineCard in an SuperX chassis but there are the same error messages.

I think the best solution is an RMA .

Here is the sh chassis output from the SX 1600:
