Can you send the output of a "sh module".

Re: Issue with WS-X6548-GE-TX


You should be able to run this command from enable mode.

if it's not available on the MSFC log onto the switch and run it. Are you running in Hybrid mode ie. IOS on MSFC and CatOS on switch ?


Re: Issue with WS-X6548-GE-TX

Please verify the minimum IOS version as recommended on the link below:

The IOS shown in your post is presumably the boot-version, not the actual IOS.

Re: Issue with WS-X6548-GE-TX

i cant map that boot-version by the related IOS

Re: Issue with WS-X6548-GE-TX

Can you post the complete output of "sh version"? The IOS version is in there as well.

OK, the IOS version is shown here:

System image file is "bootflash:c6sup22-jk2sv-mz.121-8b.E18.bin"

This explains your problem, you will have to upgrade the IOS to a newer version.

Recommended is 12.1(26)E1.

Re: Issue with WS-X6548-GE-TX


I'm not sure it is your IOS that needs upgrading. Could you confirm if you are running in hybrid mode because from the output above it looks like you are running CatOS v 6.2 on your supervisor.

In which case, referring back to Leo's link, you need CatOs 7.6(1) as a minimum to support the WS-X6548-GE-TX module.
