I have two 1234's and one 1238 and they will pass traffic for a while and then all the lights go to solid amber.
I can't find anything that explains what solid amber is but they stop passing traffic and need rebooted.
I've ran wireshark and it seems like a needle in a haystack. I'm just looking for an explanation of solid amber lights if anyone has seen them.
This sounds like a broadcast storm or bridging loop. do you have spanning-tree enabled on all ports? configuring spanning-tree edgeport is OK on those ports going to hosts such as phones and workstations but not advisable on ports connecting switches.
