I have a brand new 4507 with a supervisory engine 6-E and I have two odd issues. The first is the flash card. I am trying to store the image on the included compact flash card and I am having problems even formatting the card(s). Below is the output from the switch when I issue the format slot0: command.
Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
Format operation will destroy all data in "slot0:". Continue? [confirm]
01:34:20: %C4K_FLASH-4-COMPACTFLASHNOTREADY: Compact flash is not ready
%Error formatting slot0 (No device available)
Also aside from the flash card not formatting, I noticed that one of the new X2 10 Gigabit Ethernet converters is seeming to throw an error. I can swap it to a different 10 Gigabit Ethernet slot and I will see the same error thrown on Te3/1
00:00:43: %C4K_TRANSCEIVERMAN-3-SEEPROMREADFAILED: Failed to read transceiver seria
l eeprom on port Te3/2, try reinserting
Do you think I have a bad supervisory?
The sup6-E uplinks can either operate in 10G mode or 1G mode with TwinGig . By default , they are set for 10G and that may be why you are getting the EEPROM failed error.
You need to configure the following command to use the twin gig converter
hw-module module port-group select gigabitethernet
I am not sure about the flash but as suggested above, try reseating it.
