I understand that redundant supervisor is not required in running VSS in the C6500 series chassis. (i.e. 1 sup engine per chassis, for the two chassis interlinking with 10GE).
What would happen if the sup engine in one of the chassis fails? If there are additional modules (e.g. WS-X6548-GE-45AF) in the failed chassis, would the modules under the failed VSS chassis be powered down too?
