Traffic stops after adding new GIG cards in a 535 ver 6.3.3

Are we missing something?

When adding 2 additional GIG cards in a pix 535 running ver 6.3.3 into slots 0 & 1, we noticed that all traffic thru the pix had stopped. In other words no traffic was traversing the pix. On the internal NIC we had recieve traffic but no transmit (internal) and external we had recieve traffic but no transmit (to internet) traffic. I have included our sh version of the pix. Is there a bug of something we may have missed that may be causing this indication? The licensing looks to be in order.

Thanks, Mike G.

Re: Traffic stops after adding new GIG cards in a 535 ver 6.3.3

I have not worked with the 535, but it could be that when you added the Gigabit interfaces, since they became Interfaces 0 and 1, the configuration for the existing Interfaces may have either been deleted, or moved onto the new interfaces. It would help if you posted your (cleaned) config to see if this is what happened, or if there may be something else going on.
