Is WS-X4248-RJ45V supported in 4507R?

I'm doing a customer build and when i insert the line card i get the following:

Switch#sh mod all

Mod Ports Card Type Model Serial No.


1 2 1000BaseX (GBIC) Supervisor(active) WS-X4515 J

2 2 1000BaseX (GBIC) Supervisor(standby) WS-X4515 J

5 0 Unsupported module WS-X4248-RJ45V J

M MAC addresses Hw Fw Sw Status


1 001b.2a90.e300 to 001b.2a90.e301 2.0 12.1(12r)EW 12.1(13)EW1, EAR Ok

2 001b.2a90.e302 to 001b.2a90.e303 5.0 12.2(20r)EW1 12.2(25)EWA5, Ok

5 001b.5341.1810 to 001b.5341.183f 3.3 Other

I thought that these linecards were supported on this Chassis number. Can anybody help or does anybody have a solution? (sorry to rush, but it's reasonably urgent)

Hardware wise , it seems to be supported. You will have to check if the ios version you are running supports it. Can you tell what IOS version are you running?

You can use the following link to findout the min supported release for your hardware config:

This line card requires a minimum of

"12.2(18)EW" IOS to be supported.
