Hey mate

modules are hot swappable.

Once you install it - you can run the "sh inv" command and you will be able to see the module there

EDIT: I just did all of this with a WiSM card in a 6500 VSS layout on a live environment.

Hi Warren,

thanks for your reply.

I have one query, while installing Wism card in Cisco 6509 chassis working in VSS mode; you have started installing Wism card first in Cisco 6509 Primary switch or secondary switch?

Anil,

As said there will not be any issue placing the modular cards on any of the either chassis at the slot which are recommended to be placed.

Thanks Warren and InayathUlla.

as per understanding from your post, we can install module in any of the Cisco 6509 chassis; be it Active or Standby switch.

It is not like we need to have same hardware configuration for both 6509 expect the sup720 in both chassis.

Regards,

Neal
