We have 2 Catalyst 6509 with IOS 12.2(33)SXI and an ACE + FWSM Module in each chassis.
One chasis is equipet with a SUP VSS720 the other one is equipet with SUP7203B (will be upgraded to SUP VSS720 later).
The ACE Software is A2(1.3) the FWSM Software is 4.04.
There is no ability to get to the console of FWSM or ACE by "session slot 9 processor 0" or "session slot 8 processor 1.
The reason is:
sw0002-bt11#session slot 9 proc 0
The default escape character is Ctrl-^, then x.
You can also type 'exit' at the remote prompt to end the session
Trying 127.0.0.90 ...
% Connection timed out; remote host not responding
with the sho module command every thing seemed to be ok!
We reasambled the modules in a spare chassis with SUP7203B and IOS 12.2(18)SXH. Every thing works fine even the sessioning command works as we think. We can connect to the consoles.
We need the IOS 12.2(33)SXI for virtual switching in later use.
Doe's naybody knows what goes wrong?
Thanks for your answers
