The following is one problem that we won't (or shouldn't!) have to deal
with :-)

Title: Cisco Field Notice: Intrusion Detection System 4235 and 4250 Sensor
Inductor Failure


Posted: April 05, 2004

Summary:An inductor on the motherboard of affected* 4235 and 4250 models of
the Cisco Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
fails, rendering the unit non functional. The affected units contain a
defective inductor that may exhibit an electrical
short on the motherboard after several months of use or longer. In some
cases, the failure of the inductor is preceded
by an audible "pop" and the visible release of smoke, prior to the system
automatically shutting off. The failures that
have been reported to Cisco are confined to the motherboard within the
server enclosure. In some rare situations, smoke
may be exhausted from the chassis when the inductor is burned. The final
outcome of these events complies with the
requirements in the Safety Standards UL60950/CSA C22.2 No.
