WS-X6148A-GE-TX is unrecognized in Sup2MSFC2 (Native)


I?m trying to get a WS-X6148A-GE-TX going with a 6509 that is using a Sup2MSFC2 < WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE> in Native mode.

The sup2 has 32MB Flash and 128MB RAM.

I?ve used the IOS upgrade adviser to see what the minimum IOS version is that will fit on the Sup2 and that will recognize the WS-X6148A-GE-TX.

The version is : 12.1(27b)E2.

But it fails to recognize the card,

00:00:57: %OIR-SP-3-UNKNOWN: Unknown card in slot 7, card is being disabled

You need to upgrade the memory to 256MB and the flash to 64MB in order to download the 12.2 release since that's the version that supports that card:
