Placement of Line Cards

Unanswered Question
Oct 29th, 2007

In the 6509 and 6513 switches, does it matter where you place the line cards. The SUPs have to go in certain places, but what about the uplink GBIC cards or line cards? Is it better to place them in certain slots to accomodate the architecture of the data place -- or something like that?

I DO know that certain 6513 chassis slots do not support fabric enabled cards ( or something like that), but I am not worried about it, because I am only using the 6513 with the SUP 32 module, which does not support fabric-enabled cards anyway.

I have this problem too.

Hi Victor

It doesn't matter with the 6509 but it does with the 6513 if you are using the Sup720. However as you are only utilising the sup32, as you say, it really won't make a difference.
