Running Native Mode (IOS) on 6509 with following modules installed, but 6724 will not Power UP. Three different linecards in 2 different chassis show same symptoms. I don't believe we have 3 bad line cards. Running current IOS and researched line cards can be installed in any slot. Also verified we have proper Power Supply requirements met (2 x WS-CAC-4000W-US)

Any insight as to what I may be missing?

Re: 6509 WS-X6724-SFP PWRDOWN

Hello Keith,

I think the linecard is missing a DFC or CFC on it.

You may need to request them

in the sub-module output you see there no entry for slot 6

Few mounths ago we had the same problem: without a DFC or CFC the linecard should revert to bus mode but this is not accepted by the supervisor.

Hope to help
