6509

I have an older document that identifies the Last day of support for 6509 switches as 11/1/2012. Can anyone confirm or deny that date? Thanks.

Anyway, it says 1st of november 2012.

Actually there is a good chance they won't be able to as this is a partner link you have used and the majority are not partners. I can't access that link for example.

To the OP, generally you can substitue the /partner/ part of the URL to /customer/ and it will work eg. -

Apparently I'm not allowed to view that area of the Cisco site. I get a forbidden file error.

Re: 6509

Thanks to all. I was able to see the End of Life/support link when substituting /customer/ for /partner/. I also learned that our Sup modules are supported till 2014 but since the chassis is only supported till 2012, I guess we have to assume the earlier date for "full support". Thanks again.

I have an older document that identifies the Last day of support for 6509 switches as 11/1/2012.

The "E" series chassis still has about 7-8 years left.  Particularly when the new Sup2T will be released around 3rd Quarter of 2011.

Re: 6509

Great PDF of the future of 6500. I've been looking for info on the 2T, but haven't been able to find much (I'm a partner too).
