CISCO 4331

Good morning 

I just received new router cisco 4331 and I setup  with one SM-X1T3 / E3 card and one NIM-2FXS / 4FXO. After the Router finish load I try to activate (enable) T3 card using this command: RT (config) # card type t3 1 0
The Router mark ^card unrecognized. Question I missing any other command.




I think you need to activeate the card first without identifying port number. Try

Router(config)# card type t3 1

Then if it's accepted, it must been shown on running-config. After that you have to I'd identify the port number within that card.

Please inform me of updates.


Good morning

Curious if you are still having this problem? I have a Cisco 4451-X and using the same type of card and getting same exact error, any help would be appreciated
