Stop logging of "pod no license present for port x/y/z" ICX 6450

ICX 6450 switch on code 7.4.00b

Is there a means to stop the logging event for "PoD: No License Present for port 1/2/4" and port 1/2/2 when a switch is running without the PoD license upgrade? 

Getting constant Information log entries, every 1 min (60 secs). Is the only way to stop these to turn off logging of "I" level events?

Re: Stop logging of "pod no license present for port x/y/z" ICX 6450

it will, but you will not see all informal console and system message(s) as well  if you do " no logging buffered informational ".

 

As long as these ports are in 10 G mode ( default with factory ) and even in ERR-DISA, the log messages will continures.

 

The way to turn it off is to configure these ports for 1 G mode ( you can do that even without POD license and use them for 1 G )

Once enabled for 1 GbE, the message(s) of POD license will cease.  e 1/2/2 and e 1/2/4 will change from ERR-DISA to Down.

 

example:

ICX6450(config-mif-1/2/2,1/2/4)#sh log

Syslog logging: enabled (0 messages dropped, 2 flushes, 0 overruns)

   Buffer logging: level ACDMEINW, 2 messages logged

   level code: A=alert C=critical D=debugging M=emergency E=error

               I=informational N=notification W=warning

 

Dynamic Log Buffer (50 lines):

0d00h21m17s:I:PoD: No license present for port 1/2/4

0d00h21m17s:I:PoD: No license present for port 1/2/2

Well...duh, that's simple!  Long time Foundry users...but new to the PoD world and its nuances. Quick change to set the port away from 10GB and stop the license messages.  Thank you!

Re: Stop logging of "pod no license present for port x/y/z" ICX 6450

This is odd. I have a number of ICX switches that are still showing the "no license on port" message even after the ports have been configured to 1000/full/master.  Suggestions?

If those switches are running earlier version of 7400, please save the config and reload the switch. 

 

Issue fixed in 7400e and later

 

 

Defect ID:

DEFECT000395157 Technical Severity: High

ICX6450 port 1/2/2 and 1/2/4 configured for 1G requires reload to come up

Symptom:

ICX6450 port 1/2/2 and 1/2/4 configured for 1G do not come up and stays in the ERR-DISABLE

state.

Workaround:

Reload the switch to bring up port 1/2/2 and 1/2/4 when configured for 1G

Probability:

High

Feature:

FI Embedded Management Function: FPoD

Reported In Release:

FI 07.4.00 Service Request ID: 721353
