4507 Switch - Inactive Interfaces

Unanswered Question
Oct 28th, 2009

I have a 4507 switch with the following:

IOS ver cat4500-entservicesk9-mz.122-52.SG

Sup- WS-X4516-10GE

There are interfaces on the sup card that have a status of "inactive". How can I activate these interfaces? The #hw-module uplink select all command is not there!

I have this problem too.

Hi.

Either the VLAN assigned to these interfaces are not created in the VLAN database. Or there might be something with the number of ports supported - could you post a show module and show interface status?

Thanks for the suggestion, I had tried that already. Unfortunately it did not resolve the problem.

Hello, due to the fact you are using a redundant supervisor, some interfaces are disabled

. This is a normal behavior.

You can find on datasheet which combinations are possible

(http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps2797/ps9294/product_data_sheet0900aecd806df543_ps4324_Products_Data_Sheet.html)
