Supervisor Module from MDS 9506 work on 9509?

Unanswered Question
Jul 18th, 2007

We ordered a MDS 9509 for one of our customers. We were shipped a MDS 9506 by mistake. Now we are in the process of swapping just the frame & power supplies because the rest of the configuration is right. My question is will the supervisor modules from 9506 work on 9509? If yes, do I have to change the code on them or something?



I have this problem too.

I have to ask if they mucked up the model, did you give you the right supervisor cards? Did you order 2nd Gen and get 1st Gen?

Sounds like it was sold by HP to me. Their favouritism for Brocade can sometimes show in Cisco orders. They can have a tendency to not supplying Cisco "certified" SFP's.

And as Inch suggested, nothing needs to be done as they are identical cards.

Hi Mansoor,

Inch is on the money. The hardware (Sup/linecards) is identical, its essentially just a change in sheet metal.

You could remove the Supervisors and linecards from the (existing) MDS9506 and put them into the (new) MDS9509 and you'll find that the configuration will move with the Supervisors.
