6500 with 2 SUP's/do the GIG ports on the backup SUP work, when in backup?

Hey I'm bout to install a 6500 series with 2 SUP engines, one for primary and one for backup in the same chassis.

My question is: Do the fiber/GIG ports on the backup SUP engine work, when it is in backup mode, or ONLY when the SUP engine is in primary mode???

thanks,

Hi Chris,

The gig ports on the standby supervisor are absolutely functional, and the converse is true in the event of a switchover.

Documented here:

"The uplink ports are fully functional on the redundant supervisor engine in standby mode"

HTH,

Bobby
