Placement of line cards 6506E

Hello,

I have a 6505E with a sup 720 in slot 5 and a 48port rj45 card in slot 1. I am adding a FWSM to the mix and want to know where I should be inserting it? I believe the fabric enabled slots are 5 & 6 but I'm not sure if that matters on the FWSM. Please advise

Thanks

Hi William

With a 6506E it doesn't matter where you place the FWSM. The only time you need to worry is with a 6513 chassis because a 6513 chassis cannot deliver 2 x 20Gb to each slot.
