Supervisor 32 shuts down in the chassis every five minutes after power up

Core issue

This problem can occur due to incorrect power supply installation in the chassis.

For any Cisco Catalyst 6500 series chassis, the Supervisor Engine 32 (Sup32) requires fan tray 2 or E-Series fan tray along with a power supply of 2500 watt (W) or more. The minimum power supply required from a hardware perspective is 2500W. The power supply can run on a 110 or 220 volt external power source.


Upgrade the power supply to 2500W or higher.

For more information, refer to Table 2 in Cisco Catalyst 6500 / Cisco 7600 Series Supervisor Engine 32.
