Does anyone know if WS-X6548-GE-TX is hot swappable?

I have this problem too.

Yes it is hot swappable as are the vast majority of 6500 modules. That's part of what you are paying for. Is it guaranteed that hot-swapping the module will not have any adverse effect on the switch - no it isn't although the odds are fairly low :).

If you can schedule the swap out of hours all the better but if you have to do it during core hours you should be fine but there is always the possibility...

Thanks! This is just want I needed to confirm. Definitely not during core hour, will have to schedule a maintenence window.

Hope it goes well. I assumed you were replacing like for like. Obviously if it is a different blade you need to be aware of config changes.

actually it is a brand new blade so the config would definitely change without any impact since they are newly created ports. =)
