    PoE Controller questions 1531p, 1550p remote software upgrades

    brian.carnett New Member

      I just had a 1531p fail from N-Command after a software upgrade.

      I found in the forums that this model lacks a PoE controller capable of shutting down.  The fix is to physically power cycle the unit.

       

      Does the 1550P have the same issue?  I need to upgrade several dozen of them.

       

      Also, how would I know before trying to upgrade a device if it will require a physical powercycle?  I did not find any warnings about this in the manual, release notes, or the Adtran AOS upgrade documents.

       

       

       

      specific error on the 1531p that failed:

       

      #show power

      inline

       

      Total Power: 65.0W

      Total Power Used: 0.0W

      Total Power Available: 65.0W

      Average Total Power Used: 0.000W

      For a new device to be powered, there must be at least 19W available power.

      To power a Class 4 device, there must be at least 30W available power.

       

      'Limited' status is only valid for PoE+ devices that negotiate power using LLDP.

      It is indicated when the requested power of the PD is not met.
