Only 67xx linecards are supported in VSS Mode and at this time 67xx linecards dont support POE.

Hi Oscar,

There are no workarounds to enable POE in VSS on 67xx linecards, but here are your options:

1.      Do not run VSS mode and use PoE.
2.      Use PoE in a different chassis and run in VSS mode.
3.      Power the PoE device locally.
