What will happen if placing FSM in 13th slot?

Dear All,

                 What will happen if we are placing FWSM module in 13 th slot..In our project , we placed the FSM module  in 13 th slot only. WE are using  s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-vz.122-33.SXH4.bin ios and FSM Version  3.2(5)..Some of our friends were told that problem will happen in FSM Module with IOS.

Is  there any problem will happen in our Network?

Thanks in advance

Tks&Rgds

Some modules have to go into slots 9 - 13 on the 6513 chassis which is due to switch fabric connections. However there are no limitations with the FWSM and it can go in any slot you want.

Don't see any problem at all installing the FWSM in slot 13th.

Here is the FWSM slot assignment on 6500 switch for your reference:

You might want to check the SUP slots, however, as far as FWSM is concern, slot 13 can be used for the FWSM.
