I have been working on a 6509 with Sup engine SUP2-GE, version 12.1(8b)E11, that does not recognize the new 10/100/1000 48 port card. When listing modules it is unrecognized and power is off. Other error messages are: failed to read serial eeprom of line card in slot X and poser mgmt sprom failure for module X. The 10/100 module is read with no problem. Any suggestions?
Module appears to only be supported by CatOS ver 8.4(1) or higher...not IOS
Basically hybrid CatOS/IOS or Native CatOS will be required for operation with the new card.
According to this document ccmigration_09186a00800c8441.pdf
It is called "The Comparison of the Cisco Catalyst and Cisco IOS Operating Systems for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch."
I plugged your sup module and and the new linecard into the configurator, no compatible IOS version was returned.
Selection 2, software advisor, specify hardware manually, and add in your line cards/modules/etc. It will then give you a software recommendation.
There are other pages that list no compatible IOS version for the card in the 6500 series as well if you search on the card's model # and look under minimum supporting software revision.
That is not what I wanted to hear. I was hoping that I would not have to run in hybrid mode for the 10/100/1000. What about the WS-SUP2-MSC2 sup engine? Will this line card work in that environment along with the WS-X6348?
From what I can gather, you may need to upgrade to 12.2SX for this module to work.
According to this page, is says this module is compatible with IOS and CatOS:
