I have 6506 chassis with two sup32 and four WS-X6148-45AF. I'm connecting Avaya IP phone and after connecting so many phones it is now denying power to several port, stating that not enough power available. I go in and disconnect some of the working phones to allocate power and try to statically define 8 watt power to some ports, I now get the syslog error
Interface Fa4/24 is denied power as it requires more power than configured maximum wattage(8000).
If I take this phone and connect to a Cisco 3560 which is also statically define to use only 8 watt, it powers up fine.
What am I doing wrong? Does the blade need to be reset before 6506 takes the static power command. I actually tried using static and auto but no luck.
power inline static max 8000
power inline auto max 8000
