4006 redundancy

We have 2 4006's with a msfc card in each with 2 gbics each as well, my question is if the sup engine dies do the gbic port stay up or do they also die?

Thanks in advance,

Ron

If you are talking about the two Gbics ports on the supervisor card then it will die if the supervisor fails.

Thanks

Re: 4006 redundancy

I am assuming you are talking about 4232-l3 module ..as MSFC is associated with cat6000, The supervisor control all the line cards in the switches and hence if it fails, all communicatin through the switch fails and all the modules are not usable.

You have to use HSRP between two 4000 switches to provide redundancy.

Re: 4006 redundancy

I may be wrong on this, but aren't the Gig1/1 & Gig1/2 on the 4232-L3 router ports, not switched ports? Don't you have to configure them on the L3 router (IOS) and not the Cat.

Again, sorry if this is a repeat post.

Re: 4006 redundancy

The old customer was asking about the supervisor ports which are switch ports but the external L3 ports are def. router ports and configurable from the router. But if the supervisor dies, whole switch dies even the router module.
