Power Supply Restrictions in 6509 Chassis

Hi,

I've been trying to find some information on Power Supply configurations in 6500 series chassis. I've read this very useful document

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_installation_guide_chapter09186a008020e0d3.html#wp1030022

but it doesn't answer one question. Perhaps someone here can help?

When running a 6500 series chassis (in my case, a 6506 or 6509) on a single PSU, are there restrictions on which position it must occupy?

As part of a migration project we hope to re-deploy some PSUs but downtime is not an option. Our proposed strategy means running off a single PSU in slot 2 for a short while (a few hours).

I have come across equipment from other vendors where if only a single supply is installed, there are restrictions on which slot it must occupy.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Adam

Hi Adam,

AFAIK, There is no such restriction on Cisco Chassis. You can use it in any PS slot.
