6500-VSS but not VSS

Answered Question
Oct 19th, 2009

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

Thanks ...

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
