I have a 6509 with two WS-X6316-GE-TX cards in slots 7 and 9. The question I have is; are there restrictions for the slots in which you can place gigE cards? I am experiencing packet loss of about 30% on all of the devices on the card in slot 9 but the same devices run fine on the other card in slot 7. The problem is persistant and only apparent on the card in slot 9. Is slot 9 on the 6509 switch capable of supporting this card, should another slot be chosen for this module or could it be a hardware issue in need of an RMA?
The line cards are capable of going into any slot, there should be no slot restrictions except for the SUP and the SFM cards. If you have tried this card in another slot and the problem is stays with the slot, then an RMA is in order.
