4500E Supervisor Engine 8-E Uplinks

Unanswered Question

Please I want to find out if it is possible to use all uplinks ports on the 8 port Sup8-E modules configured as a redundant pair on a single 4510R+E chassis?

I noticed that only 4 ports are active on each sup8-E modules (making it a total of 8 ports) but I will like to use all 16 uplink ports on both modules.

The chassis is licensed for entservices and the current ios is Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.0XO(15.1(1)XO).

Thanks in advance for your help.

When you have 2 sups in the chassis, you can only have 4 ports active per sup.

Yes.. 4 ports per sup. If you only had one sup then you can have 8 ports active

you can 4x 1/10Giga ports per SUP when you have 2 SUPs in a 4510R+E...but it seems that if you have a 4507R+E you can have only 2x 1/10 Giga ports per SUP

See Table High-Availability, Uplink and Wireless Options for Supervisor Engine 8-E in http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/catalyst-4500-series-switches/data_sheet_c78-728191.html

It will be possible in future to not have this limitation?!?
