6704-10gb port crossconnect issue. very odd.

Unanswered Question
Sep 13th, 2008

Installed 2 new 6704-10gb blades in 2x 6509 routers.

Routers are already configured with 1x 10gb-LR crossconnect between each router with a simple /30 between them. Working fine.

After the upgrade. Initially I want to setup a 30gb port channel between the router, but for some reason, i was unable to ping across the interface. I then removed the channel, and just setup a /30 on a new interface and tried to ping across and could not. I also added an ipv6 address to each side and THAT was pingable.

Here is my config:



| Single Mode fiber Cable.



interface TenGigabitEthernet4/1

description int 4/1 test

ip address

no ip unreachables

no cdp enable



interface TenGigabitEthernet4/1

description int 4/1 test

ip address

no ip unreachables


Link lights come up fine, and like I said, if I add an ipv6 address to both sides, I can ping across. But I cannot ping nor from the other side.

Now I have 2x more 10gb blades in slot #3. When connected to t3/4 on both sides using the SAME 10GB-LR and same cable, and even same above configuration, it works fine.

Both routers have identical parts. This is driving me crazy. am I supposed to activate something for this new blade?



I have this problem too.

We are using:

Version 12.2(18)SXF9

If it didn't support it, then the other blade wouldn't be working fine.

Nor would ipv6 work :/

really odd that ipv4 doesn't work.

I even swapped blades around, and just doesn't work in slot 4 for ipv4.
