VSS on 6800 using mix 10GE modules

Hello,

We are about to set up two Cisco 6800 running VSS across them.

I have read and I quote ¨ VSLs can be configured with up to eight links between the two switches across any combination of line cards or supervisor ports to provide a high level of redundancy.¨

Each switch come with a VS-S2T-10G(2 x 10GbE) supervisor and a WS-X6704-10GE module card. 

My questions is: Can I use one port from the each supervisor and one port from each module card to create the VSLs with no issue? Please see the attached image as reference.

Thanks!!!

Hi,6704 module can't be

Hi,

6704 module can't be configured as part of a VSL link. There is 6708 and 6716 that support VSL.

 

VSL Hardware Requirements

The VSL EtherChannel supports only 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. The 10-Gigabit Ethernet port can be located on the supervisor engine module or on one of the following switching modules:

WS-X6708-10G-3C or WS-X6708-10G-3CXL

WS-X6716-10G-3C or WS-X6716-10G-3CXL

WS-X6716-10T-3C or WS-X6716-10T-3CXL

Hello Reza,Thanks for your

Hello Reza,

Thanks for your reply. I was afraid of this answer... we will still set up VSS using both supervisors and aventually add another 10G port card for VSS-module link redundancy.

Thanks again for your response.
