Any issues with running the WS-SVC-WISM-1 with Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Virtual Switching Supervisor Engine 720 12.2.33SXH ?

Can anyone attest they have this working in production?

As far as I know this module is not supported in VSS IOS. First supported module will be FWSM. I saw time line for modules date support, but I can not remember where.

Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch

Q. What hardware must be deployed in conjunction with the Cisco WiSM?

A. The Cisco WiSM must be deployed with a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 (all Supervisor Engine 720 versions are supported, including the Sup720-10G-VSS).

It's true that it is compatible with a Sup720 VSS model, but I do not believe that it can run when the 6500 is in VSS mode. I also learned this a long time ago, probably in March, so I do not know if things have changed or not.
