The scenario is this: there are two 6509-E series chassis in VSS mode with exactly the same hardware per slot. In slot 9 of each 6509-E chassis, there is either a WS-X6716-10G-3C or WS-X6716-10G-3CXL.
The question is, are all 16 ports active and available for use?
I have heard and thought I read on Cisco's site that when the WS-X6716-10G-3C or WS-X6716-10G-3CXL module is running in a VSS scenario that only the first 8 ports are usuable. I can no longer find any reference to this.
I know that a lot of the issues with service modules, etc were addressed with 12.2(33)SXH.
Can anyone confirm?
