5509 to 6509


We are planning to move all our VLANs/routing from the 5509 RSM to our new 6509 with 2 SUP32 modules.

I found out that we can run itin only Single Router Mode redunduncy. Are there any good links for configuration examples. Is there anything that we should be careful about while doing this migration.

Re: 5509 to 6509

Salil, you can run NSF and SSO on Sup32 as well. What is the IOS version that you are running on Sup32's.

Please paste the "show version" from the chassis.

You need atleast 12.2.18SXF for Sup32.

There are lots of hardware/software restrictions with Sup32's.

Supervisor Engine 32 Restrictions :

Supervisor Engine 32 requires a high-capacity fan tray.

In some chassis, Supervisor Engine 32 requires a high-capacity power supply (see the "Power Supplies" section).

Supervisor Engine 32 does not support this hardware:

?WS-F6K-PFC3A Policy Feature Card 3A (PFC3A)

?WS-F6K-PFC3BXL Policy Feature Card 3BXL (PFC3BXL)

?DFCs (installed DFCs do not power up with a Supervisor Engine 32)

?Switch Fabric Modules

?These switching modules:

?WS-X6704-10GE 4-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet XENPAK

?WS-X6748-SFP 48-port Gigabit Ethernet SFP

?WS-X6724-SFP 24-port Gigabit Ethernet SFP

?WS-X6816-GBIC 16-port Gigabit Ethernet GBIC

?WS-X6748-GE-TX 48-port 10/100/1000 RJ-45

?7600-SIP-600 SPA Interface Processor-600

?Optical Services Modules (OSMs)

? WS-X6182-2PA FlexWAN Module (the WS-X6582-2PA Enhanced FlexWAN Module is supported)

?CISCO7603 3-slot chassis

?These service modules:

?WS-SVC-WISM-1-K9 Wireless Services Module (WiSM)

?WS-SVC-AON-1-K9 Application-Oriented Networking (AON) Module

?WS-SVC-AGM-1-K9 Anomaly Guard Module

?WS-SVC-ADM-1-K9 Traffic Anomaly Detector Module

?WS-SVC-CSG-1 Content Services Gateway (CSG)

?WS-X6066-SLB-APC Content Switching Module (CSM)

?WS-X6066-SLB-S-K9 Content Switching Module with SSL (CSM-S)

?WS-SVC-PSD-1 Persistent Storage Device (PSD) Module

? WS-SVC-WLAN-1-K9 Wireless LAN service module

?WS-SVC-IPSEC-1 IPsec VPN acceleration services module

Releases earlier than Release 12.2(18)SXF do not support Cisco IOS SLB with Supervisor Engine 32.

Supervisor Engine 32 cannot support these software features and commands:

?Egress multicast replication

?Multicast replication mode detection

?All fabric configuration commands

Please see the release notes for all info:

HTH,Please rate if it does.

Re: 5509 to 6509

Yes this image doesnot support NSF/SSO. You need atleast 12.2.18SXD for NSF/SSO. You need atleast 12.2.18SXF to run Sup32. I would suggest you to upgrade the Sup32's to the latest IOS image and this will work for you.

Please see the link below on NSF/SSO information.

HTH,Please rate all the posts.
