I am installing a new supervisor 720 to my 6509 siwtch but I am getting the following error:


00:01:33: %C6KENV-SP-2-DFCMISMATCH: Module 9 DFC incompatible with Supervisor DFC. Power denied


Here is the output of the show module command: (File Attached)



Is ths something I can fix upgrading the IOS of the supervisor or do I need to remove the DFC module on the card?

Hi Vicente


The suprevisor 720 does not support a DFC (WS-F6K-DFC) card. It supports the DFC3A, DFC3B & DFC3BXL cards.


Attached is a link to Cisco doc with more details

Probably running into this , hopefully this is readable . Click on link for explanation .,


WS-F6K-DFC3BXL



Minimum Software Version

WS-F6K-DFC3BXL

With a Supervisor Engine 720 but without a DFC3, WS-X6516-GBIC switching module hardware revisions 5.0 through 5.4 operate in bus mode.


See external field notice 24494 for more information about Supervisor Engine 720 and a DFC3 on WS-X6516-GBIC switching modules:

Hi Jon,


Thanks for the link, I need to remove the DFC module from this card in order to make it work with my new supervisor...

Vicente
