Why is the Rock continuously rebooting?

This can occur when the Rock is not receiving continuous PoE+ (30W minimum).

There have been instances with a couple of switch models where using the 'auto' power management functionality on the Rock's switch port does not properly supply 30W continuously.

Setting the switch port to 'static' power with a minimum of 30W will resolve the issue.

If the switch configuration cannot be modified, using a PoE+ injector will also work.


Switches that may experience this issue:

  • Cisco WS-C2960CS-8PC-L
  • Aruba J9773A
