Supervisor V-10GE

Can I use 8 SFP of the principal and redundant Supervisor V-10GE of simultaneous form?

Thanks

Re: Supervisor V-10GE

Prior to Cisco Release 12.2(25)SG, the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Supervisor Engine V-10GE allowed you to enable either the dual wire-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, or four alternatively wired Gigabit Ethernet SFP uplink ports. With Cisco Release 12.2(25)SG, you can simultaneously deploy the dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and the four Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports. This capability is supported on the Catalyst 4503, Catalyst 4506, and Catalyst 4507R chassis.

When deploying a Catalyst 4510R chassis, one of three configurations is supported:

•Enable the dual 10 -Gigabit Ethernet ports (X2 optics) only.

•Enable the four Gigabit Ethernet ports (SFP optics) only.

•Enable both the dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet and the four Gigabit Ethernet ports, with the understanding that the tenth slot (Flex-Slot) will only support a 2-port gigabit interface converter (GBIC) line card (WS-X4302-GB) when in this mode.

To select the 10-Gigabit Ethernet and/or the Gigabit Ethernet SFP uplink ports, perform this task:

Command Purpose

Step 1

Switch# configure terminal

Establishes global configuration mode.

Step 2

Switch(config)# hw-module uplink select [all |

gigabitethernet | tengigabitethernet]

Selects the port type to enable.

The following example shows how to enable both 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet SFP uplink ports on a Catalyst 4510R series switch:

Switch# configure terminal

Switch(config)# hw-module uplink select all

Warning: This configuration mode will place slot 10 in flex slot mode.

On a Catalyst 4510R series switch, if you enable both the 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet SFP uplink ports, you must re-boot the switch. On the Catalyst 4503, 4506, and 4507R series switches, this capability is automatically enabled.

Hope this helps.

Re: Supervisor V-10GE

It is my understanding that the following combinations of ports can be used.

Either 4 SFP ports in redundant mode. This could be 2 on one sup and 2 on the other, or 4 on one sup (Although don't see much point in having a redundant sup if you are putting all connections into one of them).

Any 2 10GE ports. This can be either 1 10Ge port in each sup or 2 in one sup, but again little point in putting all connections into one sup.
