Yes, the 6500 switch supports OIR (Online Insertion & Removal) for all of it's modules which includes the NAM.


Before you do insert it best to check that your are running version of software that supports it. If not it won't bring the switch down just the NAM module will not come up properly.

Hi,


All the Catalyst 6500 series and Catalyst 6000 family switches support hot swapping, which allows you to install, remove, replace, and rearrange modules without turning off the system power.

All Catalyst 6500 series switches, Catalyst 6000 series switches, and Cisco 7600 series routers support hot swapping, which allows you to install, remove, replace, and rearrange modules without turning off the system power.
