we're implementing a new switched backbone using two Catalyst 6509's.
I was planning to let the switches run in hybrid mode, but it seems like the interfaces we're using are not supported by any CatOS version.
Can anyone inform me if the ws-6818 16-ports gigabit ethernet interface card is supported by any CatOS type, or do I have to run my switches in native IOS mode?
They don't appear in the Software Advisor, so....
The Distributed Forwarding Card (WS-F6K-DFC) and 16-port Gigabit Ethernet switching module (WS-X6816-GBIC) are not supported in systems running Catalyst software on the supervisor engine and Cisco IOS software only on the MSFC. These items are supported on systems running
Cisco IOS Release 12.1(8a)E or later on both the Supervisor Engine 2 and the MSFC2
