I'm looking at configuring VSS with 2 of our core 6509 switches. I did review documentation online and it looks like you can 10G Module to setup vss. If possible please assist with the optimal configuration with hardware and software listed.
Thanks for your response Mike. I've been looking at the hardware requirements and the supervisor modules that I currently have installed does not support VSS however it does mention that if you use a 10GE module it provides the capability to configure VSS.
VSS will make 2-6509's look like 1 6509. similar to stackable switches. There is no need for HSRP. STP configuration is also much easier. You need to make sure you have code that runs VSS. You need sup720. And you need to etherchannel the 2 6509's together via 10GB links. Perferrably 2 differnt cards for redundancy. VSS lso only supports 67XX model line cards. Your 65XX cards will not work.
