I recently made a cost effective purchase of a Catalyst 5000 chassis for my cisco classes. I received a supervisor engine I with the whole deal. I also happen to have some ws-x5234-RJ45 modules laying around. I installed one of the modules in the chassis and seem to be getting a response that the module is not supported. I was wondering if I happen my mitts on a supervisor engine II or III, that it would allow the module switching blade to work. I was doing some looking around on the web and came across what looked like another set of female connectors on the left back side of the supervisor module (when looking at the face). I also realized that the main board I have in the chassis doesn't have male pins for the supervisor to set into. I did some looking on the web aswell, and what seems to be said is that it will work. Is this correct?
It should work . Look at your code version on your supervisor . You need at least version 4.5.1 ro support the 5234 card , if its lower than that you need to upgrade the code.
