When I was a customer about 4-5 years ago, when SUP32 first came out. Account team told us that the SUP32 will default with MSFC2A and it cannot be excluded in order eventhought we want L2 only devices back then. This is part of the reason that I said I've not seen any L2 only SUP32 boxes.
A TAC engineer thought it might be a hardware problem, since CatOS will show the msfc card in a 'show mod' command. He opened a TAC for RMA for me. I sent the output of show ver, show log, show tech to the TAC RMA tech. The RMA TAC person said that this Sup32 had no physical msfc card, and if Cisco were to replace this Sup32 with one that had the card, there would an expence to make up the difference .
So far everything I've been able to find out is that there is no msfc upgrade for the Sup32, presumable because they all have it.
I have not yet reset the switch to see if the card starts showing up. It can't be upgraded to IOS because I can't execute "switch console" to get to the msfc. When I try, it tells me I'm connected to slot 15, and then does absolutely nothing. I place tosis physically inspect the sup32 line at the next possible maint window and see if it looks any different than any of the other Sup32's in other 6509s.
