Hello


Just a Quick question regarding VSS.


Can the VSS Pair act as separate redundant switches. Or is that it the Supervisor is built to act in VSS Mode only.


I have two 6506-E with VS-S720-10G-3C. I want them to act as separate switches like if there is no VSS capability.


I will add the VSS configuration later on.



Thanks

Hello Zeeshan,

it is possible that from a licesing point of view the tool makes distinction.


However, that is an IOS image


I have a recent switch with

sh ver | inc image

System image file is "disk0:s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI2a.bin"


for example.


The file name is that of a legitimate IOS image


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Hello Zeeshan,


yes you can do this.


But you will need to take care during the migration process to VSS.



see

or

these are still Sup720 supervisors after all with the added VSS features.


hope to help

One more thing


Im using Dynamic Config tool which is giving me a some error that says


Errors 1. When only ordering the primary supervisor, please select one of the following software: SV33IBL-12233SXH/SXI, SV33IBK9L-12233SXH/SXI, SV33IBN-12233SXH/SXI, or SV33IBK9N-12233SXH/SXI.


I have selected " SV33AIK9M-12233SXI (s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-vz.122-33.SXI.bin)"


It looks like some ordering math.


But can i use " SV33AIK9M-12233SXI (s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-vz.122-33.SXI.bin)" with one supervisor
