catalyst 6500 - supervisor ports availability

We have a Catalyst 6509 with redundant supervisor 32 with 8 portGbic SFP.

The version of CatOs is 8.4.5 and MSFC IOS 12.2.17d-SXB11.

The problem is that when the active supervisor reset and the standby supervisor becomes active, the 8Gbit links on the previous active supervisor go down till the resetting supervisor finish the reboot.

Re: catalyst 6500 - supervisor ports availability

hi

i feel this is an usual behaviour the ports on the sup-32 which is getting rebooted wont be available untill unless it loads up fully.

but the operation of the other line cards and the traffic flow will be taken care without much effect on them by the reduandant sup-32 card.

are you connecting anything in particular on the sup-32 card ?

Re: catalyst 6500 - supervisor ports availability

I don't connect anything particular on these ports.

The only thing that annoy me is that the devices attached on these ports aren't available in case of supervisor switch-over, till the "rebooting" sup32 booting sequence is ended, which is about 2 minutes.

Which means that if I don't want any interrupted service on the sup32 ports, I have to double the links, one on each supervisor.

regards
