another Cisco hardware blunder - "Clock Signal Component Issue"

Alexander Bochmann Thursday 02 of February, 2017
Cisco has identified another component that's prone to failing over time (after we had the dying RAM issue maybe two years ago): Although the Cisco products with this component are currently performing normally, we expect product failures to increase over the years, beginning after the unit has been in operation for approximately 18 months. Once the component has failed, the system will stop functioning, will not boot, and is not recoverable.

Details over here: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/web/clock-signal.html

Of the affected platforms, I assume the ASAs will be the most painful for us, if it turns out we have bad hardware revisions...
