2 Things immediately to mind

The input speed on the console port can be changed to allow quicker uploads of images. Check the Cisco website for your Sup III and CatOS for specifics. You may have to keep changing you Hyperterm port speed until you get the right one.

Also, the Sup III uses a different pinout that the Sup I and II . If I remember right , it is a straight through versus a normal roll over (used in conjuction with the 9 pin adapters). Again the website would be able to provide better details

Re: Cat 5500 reset


As highlighted by the earlier respense try them or else

Try for software release 5.5(4). (CSCds05287) for the switch which prevents the high utilisation of the CPU of the switch.

You can also try to limit the number of the log errors to be visible on the screen depending on the screen size.

Thanks and regards
