6513 installations

Unanswered Question

Hey everybody,

It's seems like it's that time of day again where i ask a question to aid me in my quest for knowledge - my search for the all-knowing Cisco Oracle!

A simple one today, a customer has asked for an upgraded supervisor memory card and it's been left to me to perform the installation. Having never done one before i was wondering how simple it was. Also i can't seem to get one of the switch fabric modules to sit right *and i don't want to force it) because the handles seem to big, is it just me or is it a common problem. Last, but by no means least i have to install a fan tray (i presume that's what the vertical slot on the side is for) - as i'm not running any supervisor 32's or 720's i was wondering if it was ok to power up the chassis (for diagnostic purposes) without the fan or is this just suicide? Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Based on your post, it sounds like you are running Supervisor II, see the following URL on how to upgrade the DRAM:

You mentioned fabric module, what kind of line card are we dealing with ? 65xx or 67xx ?

Make sure it has the correct connectors in the backplane, don't force it - it should slide in.

You can replace the fan while the system is operating, don't run the chassis without the fan for a long period of time
