I am using a Cisco 3725 router in my home lab as the PSTN. I have a VIC-2FXS that I was trying to use on one of the three WIC slots however when typing a "sh run", "sh diag", or "sh ver" the 2 FXS ports do not show up.
I do have an NM-HDV module with the VWIC-2MFT-T1-DI in it, and its showing up in the config. I havent tried putting the VIC-2FXS in the NM-HDV yet because, according to Cisco docs, the VIC-2FXS is supported on the 3 WIC slots. I upgraded the IOS to Advanced Enterprise from IP VOICE and that did nothing. I also have 4x PVDM12 on the NM-HDV module and the AIM-VOICE-30 installed on the motherboard.
On the 3700s, do they support VIC cards on the onboard slots? Or do you have to put them on a NM-HDV module?
Side Note: The LEDs are showing amber on the VIC-2FXS so I dont believe its defective.
EDIT: Thanks everyone, so the answer is No, its not supported on the 3725 natively (onboard WIC slots) and even on an NM-HDV, BUT you can buy a cheap NM-V1 or NM-V2 and it works.
Best scenario if you are using one as a PSTN switch, the NM-2V and (2) VIC-2FXS is the cheapest way to go. You still have the bottom slot for the NM-HDV for staging PVDMs (no onboard PVDM slots) and 1 or 2 T1/E1/PRI cards and 2 on-board AIM slots to support the AIM-30-VOICE DSPs.
As said, you will require NM-1V or NM-2V to make VIC-2FXS work with 3725. You cant insert it in other card and expect it to be detected.

VIC-2FXS is not supported on the 3700.
You will need NM-1V or NM-2V module to support voice cards.
