SPA-4XT-SERIAL Module Installation Issue on 6513 Switch

Answered Question

User Badges:


I have installed the 7600-SIP-200 and SPA-4XT-SERIAL modules in the 6513 switch. Both modules have been detected. But, I received following error message:

“SLOT 1: 00:00:04: %SPA_OIR-3-UNSUPPORTED: The SPA-4XT-SERIAL in Subslot 0 is not supported by the SIP-200 module”


I had upgraded the IOS and had also changed the slot but still the same issue.


When I checked the Cisco documentation for 6500 switch, it says that it supports 7600-SIP-200 and SPA-4XT-SERIAL modules. "show module" of the router is as follows:

Hi Haseeb and Giuseppe,


The SPA-4XT-SERIAL is not supported in any version of the 6500 right now. This module runs on the ASR and 7600 SRC1 or later software.

Hello Haseeb,


I don't see this SPA listed among supported ones in


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/shared_port_adapters/install_upgrade/6500series/6500sov.html#wp1052051


see also sip200 datasheet

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps368/product_data_sheet0900aecd8027c9df_ps708_Products_Data_Sheet.html




there is an 8 T1/E1 channelized SPA but not the one you have.

My guess is that this SPA may be supported on a different platform like ASR 1000.




Hope to help

Giuseppe

Hello Haseeb,

I agree that documentation is measleading, however the first link I had provided is C6500 specific



>> I don't see this SPA listed among supported ones in


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/shared_port_adapters/install_upgrade/6500series/6500sov.html#wp1052051


the SPA is listed in SIP-200 datasheet


see also table 1-5 of serial SPA compatibility at


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/shared_port_adapters/install_upgrade/6500series/65intro.html#wp1062884


again that SPA is not listed



generally speaking, I would suggest to use URLs instead of jpeg images

Hello Haseeb,


>> I verified using the dynamic configuration tool and added these  modules to the 6500 switch. It returned no error.


but the real C6513 accepts the SPA now or not ? Is only the SW tool that  provides a positive feedback?



I agree that SIP-200 datasheet supports the SPA  and it is listed in its data sheet, and it is reasonable to expect the SPA should be supported once the SIP-200 linecard is inserted in a C6513 chassis instead of C7609.

But when you started this thread you faced an issue in the error messages pointing to not recognized hardware.


So looking at SIP/SPA configuration guide for C6500 (the links I've provided) this specific SPA is not listed, it can be just an error in documentation or it can reflect a real choice of IOS developers.


I see you have IOS 12.2(33)SXH6 you can try a 12.2(33)SXI2 just as a final check with last release.


Edit:

I would suggest to test with 12.2(33)SXI because it has a greater support of service modules like FWSM, ACE and CSM.

Hello Shailesh,

Jerry, that is a Cisco employee, has confirmed that the SPA is not supported on a C6500.

It is clearly an implementation choice made by Cisco.


I agree that opening a SR with TAC could provide a further confirmation of this.
