6500 VSS Upgrade

Hi Mohammed,

You need to upgrade fan try and power supply

Q. Will the Supervisor 720 be supported in all Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series chassis?

A. Yes. In the case of E-series chassis no fan upgrade is required. E-Chassis Fan tray is sufficient. In the case of non E-series chassis please follow the Table 2 for fan upgrade.

see table 2 in this link:

Hi,

Yes, you would need to have the same type of line cards in both chassis if you want to do VSS.  If the old switch has a  VS-S720-10G installed and it is working then that chassis is already an E chasse.  There is no need to upgrade the chassis.  For VSS, make sure the line card models and the Sups are the same.
