Greetings.

We have a Cisco 10000PRE2 router running in ISG mode with the following config:

Cisco IOS Software, 10000 Software (C10K2-P11-M), Version 12.2(31)SB11, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)

PID: ESR-BLOWER , VID: , SN:

No matter how i tried, i could not get two or three of these network cards working int GigabitEtherChannel mode, however, this link: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2sb/feature/guide/sbcelacp.html says it's possible. Ports (including Port-Channel interface itself) go up, but no frames are passing through. Had anyone success with this matter?

Or, does anyone know, if 10G module is planned for this chassis? I have nearly 900M of traffic passing through it, and desperately need some reserve.

Thanks a lot!

I have this problem too.

The 802.1q support on GEC for c10k (PRE-2 and PRE-3) will be available in 12.2SB release-5. We are currently working on getting the 802.1q support on GEC into the release-4 throttle branch. It should be available in future rebuilds out of the 12.2(31) SB.

Thanks a lot for your answer!

I'm not quite sure i understand though: 12.2SB release 5 is older that 12.2SB31, or not? And how about 12.2(33).SB, that became available recently? Will 'ip subscriber routed' will be supported on 802.1q-based vlans on GEC?

Thanks again.
