Hello Frank,

try to use the following command

conf t

power enable module

this should provide power to the module in slot slot_number

Hope to help

Hello Franck,

sorry it was even easier ...

when you add a network module in a never used slot you need to enable the new module's ports with no shut on all the ports you want to use


int gi7/1

no sh

to get at least a L1 link

Hope to help

Hello Franck

in order to connect a PC and to provide ip connectivity:

you need to put the port in switchport mode and in an access vlan that has L3 services:

int gi7/1

no shut


switchport mode access

swtichport access vlan 130

Be aware in a C6500 default port config is to be a routed port (to have an ip address on it).

This is a different behaviour then other multilayer switches where the port is L2 by default.

you can check with:

sh int gi7/1 switchport

where 130 stays for an access vlan

or also vlan 1 can be used of course

Hope to help
