We've been mocking up a test lab to test VSS on two 6500's. Each 6500 has one sup720 and a 6708-10ge blade and we've established the two 10ge links between the two chassis; the first from the each chassis' sup and the second from each 6708.
My question is, what happens when the supervisor fails on one of the chassis?
I was under the impression that NSF and SSO would kick in and the entire VSS would be managed by a single sup. If the active sup fails, the stby becomes the active and vice versa. However, when we pulled out the active sup720 linecard (chassis1), the stby sup720 (chassis2) failed over as planned, but access to all of the linecards in chassis 1 were lost.
Is this how it's supposed to react?
