We are getting an error when trying to install a new WS-X6704-10GE module into a CAT 6500 running CatOS version cat6000-sup720cvk9.8-4-3.bin. The switch already has two of these modules in the chassis and working fine. We are nstalling a 3rd module.
If we try to power the module up when in the switch we get:
SW-002> (enable) set module power up 4
Module 4 could not be powered up.
If we remove and then insert the module we get:
RNS-CSW-002> (enable) 2008 Jul 30 11:36:05 AEST +10:00 %SYS-5-MOD_REMOVE:Module
4 has been removed
failed to read serial eeprom of linecard in slot 4.

e for module 4
2008 Jul 30 11:36:17 AEST +10:00 %SYS-5-MOD_INSERT:Module 4 has been inserted
Attached is show module and the show eprom from the module.
The switch has two of the same module WS-X6704-10GE already installed in it, although older versions.
We have tried 2 different WS-X6704-10GE modules in 3 different switches with the same results in all of them (all running CatOs - cat6000-sup720cvk9.8-4-3.bin)
The 2 modules both worked fine in our staging lab in another 6509-E running the latest IOS.
Could it be power supply not sufficient. See attached files for more details.
