My customer is planning to upgrade
serveral 6509 from SUP2 to SUP720, and at the same time, to upgrade the
firmware from hybrid mode to native IOS mode.
Anything about these items I should concened?
1/ whether there is any limitation with this upgrade plan likes
2/ any module is not compatible or
3/ additional memory is required.
Wonderful, You have all fabric enabled modules in the Chassis. They are capable to run at 32 gbps and 256 Gbps switching performance, depending upon the SFM (switch fabric module) used. You currently dont have SFM installed in the chassis, so the chassis will be working on 32Gbps. Once you will move to Sup720, it has a SFM builtin and you chassis throughput will increase to 256 Gbps. All the line cards will be able to scale upto 256Gbps depending on the DFC( distributed feature card ) used.
Please paste the " show environment " from your chassis. This is to check the current fan try being used in the chassis. You need High-speed fan-tray (WS-C6509-E-FAN) with Sup720 and if its already installed (as you are running 6509-E) then you really dont need to worry. All you prsent line cards are compatible with Sup720.
Please see the release notes below for checking the minimum/recommended IOS version required for these modules to run with Sup720.
To run 6516A-GBIC you need atleast 12.2(14)SX
You are running 6548-GE-TX 10/100/1000 module.I also see that you are having a POE daughter card for 6548 modules and you need atleast 12.2(17a)SX to get the card recognised and the complete module to work.
I would recommend you to request for the latest IOS release on your Sup720.
HTH,Please rate if it does.
