Commands of 6509

Hi all,

Recently I got a job in a new Company where they use 6509 Switches. Really I am facing some problems that most of the commands that I was using in 4506 Switch is not working here. I can't even see the status of a particular port. Can you please help me ???

Where can I get Commands of 6509 Switch

Waiting for your reply...

Okay looks like you are running Hybrid or at least CatOS on the supervisor. Do you know if the 6500 is responsible for the inter-vlan routng ?

Very quick explanation.

The MSFC (Multi Switch Feature Card) is the daughtercard responsible for the L3 side of the 6500. That's a bit broad because a lot of the actual L3 switching is done in hardware but it'll do for now.

So if you were logged into the MSFC on the 6500 the commands would seem quite familiar to you as it will be running IOS. Here you setup routing protocols, create your L3 vlan interfaces etc.

However the L2 functionality ie. settings on the physical ports, STP etc. is done on the supervisor. If the "sh port" command is working then you are on the supervisor. To get to the MSFC from there

switch# session 15

This will take you through to the MSFC.

So you need to know both CatOS and IOS to manage this switch. Or you could look to upgrade to Native and have just IOS on the switch. Then you would access the physical ports with "sh int ..." commands.

Attached is a link to command references for 6500 which covers both CatOS and IOS. Have a lookk and see how far you get. Feel free to come back to NetPro if you have further questions.

Hi Jestin

Do you know if your 6500 is running in hybrid mode or native mode ie.

Hybrid = CatOS on the supervisor, IOS on the MSFC

Native = IOS for both.

Try both these commands for a port status and let us know which one works

sh int "int type/int number"

sh port "slot/number" - where slot is the position of the module in the chassis (you can get this with a "sh module") and number is the number of the port.

Once we work out whether hybrid or native we should be able to help you more.

Re: Commands of 6509

two of the c6509 in my company are like these, I have to login supervisor using "set" commands, then I must login two MSFC1 respectively, every MSFC1 both are active, so maybe need HSRP between two MSFC1 in ONE box. MSFC2 support SSO, it is a good function, I can use native IOS and synchronize two MSFC2 configuration,

720 serial supervisor are good for work, they look like router, I like them...
