Note that if this is a switch with multiple switch fabric units, only one unit may be affected. However, it is possible for both to be affected as well. The out of band management port should not be affected.
- All CPU generated packets will not be transmitted
- Any protocols in use by the switch will be affected (LACP, LLDP, EDP, EAPS, STP, etc)
- Any traffic sourced to the switch (SSH, telnet, SNMP, ping, etc) will not receive a response
- The switch will not be able to resolve new ARP entries, as ARP requests from the switch will not be forwarded
