Description
Will surge current occur at the moment a CE switch is powered on?
Solution
All the cards and power modules of CE12800 series switches use a soft-start circuit design. This design can prevent surge current at the moment the chassis is powered on, as long as the power provided by the external power supply system is within the rated power of the chassis.

Description
What will occur if power modules or fan modules used on a switch have different airflow directions?
Solution
If power modules or fan modules used on a CE switch have different airflow directions, the system reports alarms about inconsistent airflow directions of the power modules and fan modules. Inconsistent airflow directions between power modules, fan modules, or between power modules and fan modules degrade system reliability when the switch needs to work in a high-temperature environment for a long time, and shorten service life of the switch.

In which situation does MAC address flapping occur on CE switches
MAC address flapping occurs when a MAC address is learned by two interfaces in the same VLAN and the MAC address entry learned later replaces the earlier one. MAC address flapping is usually caused by Layer 2 loops.

What is the working mode of power modules on CE series switches
Description
What is the working mode of power modules on a switch?
Solution
By default, power modules on a switch work in load balancing mode. The software of power modules equally distributes power consumption to all the power modules.
You can change the working mode of power modules through the CLI if required.
