a catalyst 5509 running the following catos :6.4(5),
this catalyst is equipped with a RSM and VIP2-40 modules ( the software running on the RSM is Version 12.0(10)W5(18h) and RAM supported is 128 MB).
we are trying to add the following port adapters to the VIP2-40 module : PA-A3-OC3SMI (1-Port ATM Enhanced OC3c/STM1 Single-Mode (IR)) and PA-2CE1/PRI-120 (Channelized E1 PA 2 ports) .
if both port adapters are inserted together in the VIP2-40 module , both of them are disabled ( they were not recognied by the RSM ) , while if only one Port adapter( whatever which one ) is plugged in the VIP2-40 module , it is enabled and working fine .
Catalyst RSM/VIP2 in Catalyst 5000 Family Switches
Following are the hardware requirements for the PA-A3 in Catalyst 5000 family switches:
The PA-A3 port adapters can be installed on the Catalyst RSM/VIP2-40 with the Route Switch Processor 2 (RSP2). The Catalyst RSM/VIP2-15 does not support the PA-A3.
On a Catalyst RSM/VIP2-40, you can have two PA-A3-T3 or PA-A3-E3 port adapters installed in adjacent slots or a port adapter of any other type installed in the adjacent slot with the exception of the PA-A3-OC3MM, PA-A3-OC3SMI, or PA-A3-OC3SML port adapters. You can have only one PA-A3-OC3 port adapter per Catalyst RSM/VIP2-40; no other port adapter can reside in the other port adapter slot.
The PA-A3 supports the DRAM and static RAM (SRAM) configurations used in the Catalyst RSM/VIP2-40(=) with 2 MB of SRAM and 32 MB of DRAM.
I think you may have misinterpreted my reply, as you have said the URL states that you can have any PA in the adjacent slot to a PA-A3-T3 or PA-A3-E3 except a PA-A3-OC3MM, PA-A3-OC3SMI, or PA-A3-OC3SML
But it then goes on to say that you can only have a single PA-A3-OC3 in a VIP2-40:
You can have only one PA-A3-OC3 port adapter per Catalyst RSM/VIP2-40; no other port adapter can reside in the other port adapter slot.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
