MLXe doesnt bring up 1G interfaces after reloading 20x10G card without optics and then inserting 1G SFPs on multiple ports quickly.
Software Release: 5.6, 5.7, 5.8, 5.9, 6.0 and 6.1 Fixed in Version: NI6.2.00
The issuehappens due tonoises over the interfaces when LP boots up without optics and then insert 1G SFPs. The noise causes MACSEC initialization error in changingdefault 10G setting to 1G setting.
The fix of DEFECT000591202 will be in NI6.2.00 at firstand then the fixwill be ported into other patch releases.
How to fix is changing default SFP type in LP boot up. With the fix, during power up, if optics are not installed, code initializes to 1G and MACSEC 1G by default. Without the fix, it works as 10G. Since 1G is the lower power / lower signal noise.
Swapping from 1G SFPs to 10G SFPPs for now and then re-inserting 1G SFPs to force MACSEC initialization
