Hi All,

     I would like to know if we can replace the sockets in one of the power unit of C6509E(which has a redundant power supply) online.

Should I have to power down the chassis to replace the sockets in both the power units of C6509E?

Any documents for reference would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

All Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series chassis hold up to two load-sharing, fault-tolerant, hot-swappable power supplies. Only one supply is required to operate a fully loaded chassis. If a second supply is installed, it operates in a load-sharing capacity. The power supplies are hot-swappable-a failed power supply can be removed without powering off the system.

Please check the following link from cisco:-


Hope this will solve your query !!
