6509-E VSS 10gb port count

Hey All,

Has someone created two 6509s as VSS with just one 10gb connection?

I know it is recommened to use both the 10gb connections on the sup-720 from below configuration guide

"

Information about VSL Topology

A VSS contains two chassis that communicate using the VSL, which is a  special port group. Configure both of the 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports on  the supervisor engines as VSL ports.

"

But will the VSS come up if I use just the one?

Many Thanks,

Hi Alan,

This still be working. Though it is a subject for more often occurrencies of dual-active scenario and consequent automatic actions to recover from it. As single linke issue will cause the VSL link failure while with dual VSL link VSL will still be up.
