I would like to know how the ports on a cisco 6509 MSFC work. Basically there are 2 physical blades. The A blade has 12 ports and the B blade has 48 ports. When I log onto the switch and I do a sh port I get 1/2, 1/3 all the way up to 6/16. Yet on the 6509 they are physically labeled 1 to 48. I am certain that I am not on the wrong 6509 as there is only 1 6509. When I session to the router it is configured with 4 Vlans only.
What am I missing? When the person at the 6509 is saying "I am plugging a cable into port 24" which one of the ports on the 6509 can I check to see that the notconnect state has changed to connect?
