Then 2 is the limit.


see below for session limit per SUP type.


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SXF/native/configuration/guide/span.html#wp1102614


when testing I get more or less same message.


% This platform allows a maximum of 2 concurrent sessions with RX sources and

% 4 concurrent sessions with TX sources. (Bidirectional sources count as

% both RX and TX; remote VLAN sources count as RX.)



Try removing session you don't need or park it temporarily while you test.
