I have a UBR 7246VXR with MC16C line cards in it.  They are tied to a bundled interface.  I have removed cable line card 4/0 from the bundle and tried to assign as IP address to it, but it says "IP addresses may not be configured on L2 links".  I have never seen this before.  Anyone know how to fix this?

Well I found the answer to this one so I thought I would share it:

As of Cisco IOS Release 12.3(21)BC, all cable line cards are automatically part of virtual bundles.  Removing a line card from one bundle means it has to be configured as part of another virtual bundle.

I've spend a lot of time trying to manage exactly the same problem until I found your post.

Thank you very much.
