We have 6509 MLS and 4506 (L2 Sup engine ) in our Network with single sup engine in each . We are planning to go for Redundant sup engine for 6509 as well as 4506 . How about GBIC ports in Redundant sup engine ?. The current sup engine module in both 6509 & 4506 have 2 GBIC ports . Does the Redundant sup engine module also comes with 2 GBIC ports ?
A 4506 will not support redundant sup's, you need a 4507R. There are also issues with uplinks on the sups when you go the redundant route. There are some documents on CCO that explain it well but unfortunately I dont have the links handy.
Thank you . Assume that I have two sup engines in slot 1 and slot 2 respectively , slot1 engine is active and slot2 is in standby mode . How about giga ports (2 GE ports ) in standby engine ?. Will it be active and can I use these ports for uplink connectivity (OR ) it will be inactive ?.
