In this instance, I have a customer who wishes to oversubscribe their bandwidth points as per the following note on CCO:
"Note You can use a Cisco 7200 series router with a port adapter configuration that exceeds the preceding guidelines; however, to prevent anomalies from occurring while the router is in use, we strongly recommend restricting the port adapter types installed in the router according to the guidelines listed above. Additionally, your port adapter configuration must be within the above guidelines before the Cisco Technical Assistance Center will troubleshoot anomalies that are occurring in your Cisco 7200 series router. "
We have a 7206 with NSE-1 and wish to do this, however when the POST brings up the following error:
"Cisco 7200 series routers have a finite data-carrying capacity, referred to as bandwidth, that affects the port adapter distribution in the chassis, as well as the number and types of port adapters you can install.
To ensure that your Cisco 7200 series router port adapter configuration is within the router operating limits, observe the following guidelines and requirements when planning to install a port adapter, network processing engine or network services engine, or I/O controller."
