Upgrading Cisco Catalyst 4500 series Supervisor question

Hi All.

Does anybody know if a new Cisco Catalyst 4500 series supervisor 7L-E model WS-X45-SUP7L-E is backward compatible with a Cisco Catalyst 4500 series chassis model 4507R?

I've checked on Cisco website for that Supervisor and it shows only new chassis models WS-C4507R+E and R-E, but what about old type of chassis? We need to upgrade that Supervisor as it's out of line, but we don't really want to buy a new chassis as well as it's going to be very pricy.

Thanks for your support.

Regards,

Hi,

the info is on the same link I posted few minutes ago on another thread.

"This engine is supported on E-series, R-E, and R+E chassis." So you need a E type of chassis. 4507R is not good.

from Release Note for Catalyst 4500 Series Switch, Release IOS-XE 3.2.x SG"

Based the info from Cisco website at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps4324/prod_models_comparison.html#4500, apparently, sup 7LE is not compatibale with 4500 classic chassis.

Thanks for your answers lads.

Riccardo, your link doesn't work, says Forbidden File or Application.

Guys, do you know to what model of Catalyst 4500 supervisor should I upgrade then? without changing the Catalyst 4507R chassis?

Existing supervisor is out of line and production, so i suppose we won't get a support and service on that Supervisor.

Will Supervisor Engine 6-E, 6L-E,  V-10GE, V, IV,  II-Plus-10GE, II-Plus would support 4507R chassis?

Thanks.
