failed POST on summit?

I just picked two used Summit switches (a 48 and 24 - older
series, not 'i').

When they boot up they show:
ExtremeWare
Copyright (C) 1999 by Extreme Networks
===============================================

Version 4.1.19 (Build 2) By Release_Master on Wed 08/09/2000 6:09p
System Serial Number: 0107M00022
Memory Size: 33554432 (32MB)
MAC Address: 00:01:30:b5:6b:00

ASIC register and memory test ..........passed
Start running diagnostic test .................................................
..............................................................................
.............................................failed

So the mystery is that the green light flashes properly after bootup
(which indicates POST was ok according to the manual) - and the
switch seems to work ok. How do I figure out what the 'failed'
is in reference to? Could this be due to just not having GBIC's
installed? Or is this a real hardware issue?

Thanks for any help!

This is not because of the GBIC?s not being installed. I run several summits
with and without GBIC?s . There should be some better diagnostic that you
can run while it is running. Is the switch functioning ok?. Do you have the
latest software?

I have a summit24 that sometimes stop packetforwarding. All diagnostics are
OK. Very strange problem.... Anyone have suggestions?

Hi Josh,

You should be able to get more details with the command 'show diag'.

Regards, Fabian.
