We have a 7513 12.0(7)T 32 MB RAM and I'm trying to install a new VIP2-50 (with an E3 PA).
I've successfully installed VIP's in this router over the years with no previous problems. Performing an OIR (slot 9) causes slots 0-4 to 'go offline', the inferfaces are up but don't pass any traffic.
I also tried powering off the router, adding the VIP then powering on the router, this causes it to go into a crash loop. The console reports a software forced reload.
The router has
Slot 0: 8 port serial, 8 port serial
Slot 1: 8 port serial, E3
Slot 2: 8 port serial, E1 (PRI)
Slot 3: 8 port serial, E1 (PRI)
Slot 4: E3 , E3
Slot 5: Fast Eth , Fast Eth
Slot 6: RSP4
Slot 7: RSP4
Slot 8: E1 (PRI) , E3
Slot 9: Spare
The new VIP works fine in a second 7513 we have although it has fewer VIP's installed so I know the new card is ok.
Really what I'd like to know is there a limit on the number of VIP's that can be installed in the 7513, well there must be a limit of some sort but I can't find anything about it on CCO.
Thanks in advance.
