catalyst 4006 configure: power supplies required {1 | 2} command.


Does anybody know why it's not possible to use the "power supplies required {1 | 2}" command on a catalyst 4006 switch? What i mean is that this command is unknown in my IOS release 12.1(8a)EW1. And how can you see in which mode the powersupply's actually working?

Regards Perry.

This command is only supported in 12.1(11b)EW1and later

cs-4006-23a(config)#power supplies required ?

1 Power derived from single weakest supply

2 Power derived is sum of two weaker supplies

To monitor, you can use "sh environment" or "sh power"

cs-4006-23a#sh power ?

available system power available (margin)

inline Show inline power status

status show all power status

supplies show power supplies needed

It might be available in 12.1.11bEW but you obviously need 2 PS on a cat4006 and the third one for redundancy. It is not useful in the present form.

This command is useful in future offerings and products. Please consult your local Cisco Rep for further information.
