I just received a brand new 4506-E with a supervisor IV card. I also have a 48 port gig Ethernet card. I powered it on and there are no status lights on any blade. The fan light is green as are the power lights. My VAR sent a new supervisor card and it also does not appear to come on. I noticed that there is no flash card in either of them. Is this required?
I've run into this issue on a couple of 4500s. Make extra sure that the cards are pushed all the way into the slots. The captive screws can be screwed all the way in and the ejection levers can be pushed all the way back but the card is still not fully seated.
