Supporting VSS and WS-X6708-10G-3C on a 6509-E

I have 6 6509E chassis switches that I want to trunk to a set of Nexus 5k switches. I want to use the 8 port 10G card for connectivity to them from each 6509, but I am not sure if the SUP-720-3B is the right SUP to use. I would like to run VSS on all 3 sets of chassis, I already know I need to upgrade my IOS (12.2.17 to 12.2.(33)SXH2) to support the VSS. Any recommendations on what SUP to go to to get optimal performance?

You need a VS-S720 for VSS support.  I.e. your 720-3Bs do not support VSS.

Depending on your line cards, you might want to also consider the sup2T, instead.

Thanks for the answer. I saw

Thanks for the answer. I saw where the SUP-720-3B supported the 10G cards but i didn't see that it didn't support VSS. I will be looking at the SUP-2T i believe.

BTW, for long term, the sup2T is probably a better choice and it (did) cost about the same as a VS-S720.

I'm checking line cards for

I'm checking line cards for compatibility. looking at using the SUP-2T-10GE, any other versions I should look at? I'm not sure if the VS-S2T-10G will work. It looks like the  WS-X6708-10G-TL is the 10G line card I need and not  WS-X6708-10G-3C

For the sup2T, you'll want to look at the 69xx line cards.

BTW, for the VS-S720 (and the sup2t), less line cards are supported when running VSS.

If you want to go down Sup2T,

If you want to go down Sup2T, then I'd recommend you talk to your Cisco SE/AM about the 6807-X chassis for future proofing.
