If I populate a 3925 router with an NM-HDV2-2T1 module can I just use the onboard (PVDM3) DSPs of the router to drive all of the PRIs on this module----rather than using the onboard PVDM2 slots of the module?

have you got any answer?

I'm planning also to use only PVDM3 but with this module, is it possible?

This is addressed in the following document,


Q. Are the PVDM3 modules supported in a NM-HDV2?
A. No. You cannot install PVDM3 modules directly on the PVDM slots of an NM-HDV2, only the PVDM2s are supported by the NM-HDV2. However, an NM-HDV2 that has no PVDMs installed at all can share PVDM3 DSP resources from the router motherboard PVDM slots across the chassis backplane.
Please note that you will need to add the "network-clock-participate slot x" command for the SM slot before DSP resources will be shared from the motherboard to the NM.
