Cat 6000 or 6500

Unanswered Question
Jan 22nd, 2008

This should seem like a trivial matter, but I am simply trying to figure out if I am working on a Cat 6000 or 6500. I am doing work remotely so I can't just go and take a look at the switch.

The people on site claim that this is a 6500, but what I have seen seems to indicate that it is a C6000. Here is a show version from the switch in question:

Hi Jim,

Looks to be Cat6000 but to make sure can you issue a command "sh idprom backplane"

Regards,

Ankur

Thanks, Ankur. When I run this command I get the following:

PROD1#sh idprom backplane

IDPROM for backplane #0

(FRU is 'Catalyst 6500 9-slot backplane')

OEM String = 'Cisco Systems'

Product Number = 'WS-C6509'

Serial Number = 'TSC0724003R'

Manufacturing Assembly Number = '73-3438-05'

Manufacturing Assembly Revision = 'A0'

Hardware Revision = 3.0

Current supplied (+) or consumed (-) = -A

If I am interpretting that output correctly, it looks to report as a 6509. Curious since if I look at the unit from a neighboring switch (PROD4) it reports as a 6000 in CDP neighbor:

PROD4#sh cdp neig

Capability Codes: R - Router, T - Trans Bridge, B - Source Route Bridge

S - Switch, H - Host, I - IGMP, r - Repeater, P - Phone

Device ID Local Intrfce Holdtme Capability Platform Port ID

PROD1

Gig 1/2 120 R S I Cat 6000 Gig 2/10

PROD1

Gig 1/1 120 R S I Cat 6000 Gig 2/9

So with the first command, we are sure this is a 6000?

Thanks,

Jim

Hi Jim,

It may report as Cat6000 as a switch class but the chassis which you are having is for sure Cat6509.

Can you paste the output of "sh cdp nei int detail"
