We currently have 2 6509s with redundant Sup720-3b's and PFC3B daughter cards which are connected together over dark fibre using the Gb fibre connectivity built into the supervisors.
The requirement is to upgrade this connection to 10Gb as inexpensively as possible.
Do I need to purchase new supervisors in order to do this properly or can I use a separate 10Gbe module (we have a spare slot), i.e. can I get away without using the connectivity built into the supervisors?
The other idea I had was putting a couple of 3750-X switches at each end to sit in front of the 6509s and provide the 10Gb connectivity between sites. I could then use the existing Gb uplinks on the supervisors whilst also providing connectivity for some devices that currently connect to the 6509s but could just as well connect here.
I have a WS-C3560G-24TS-S running 12.2(50)SE5 with IPBASE. I have been told that the functionality i seek (multicasting) is only available in the IPSERVICES version of the software. I was reading up on upgrading and saw that i needed to do a show license and get the UID and Serial number and get a license that is tied to my box. But the show license command doesnt work wtih my box. i then found something that said that the 3560's were special in that way. Im not sure how to get this box upgraded. I have a different 3560 running the IPSERVICES elsewhere in my organization. Can i take the IOS Version and update my switch to that?
I have Catalyst 6509 E with redudant SUP720-3B (and MSFC3) running 12.2(18)SXF6 IP Services Lan Only IOS (this IOS requires 512MB DRAM and 64MB of flash) SUP has 512MB DRAM (458720K/65536K) and 512MB sup-bootdisk:, but, there is65536K bytes of Flash internal SIMM (Sector size 512K).
My question is can I put 12.2(33)SXJ3 IP Services Lan Only IOS to this 6500 because this IOS requires 512MB DRAM and 512MB od flash?This is "sh ver" and "dir all-filesystems" of my 6500:

In my network i have two 6509s connected with L3 etherchannel. i have created saparate vlans in the two 6509s with different switches.now i want to use one vlan in 1st 6509 in the 2nd 6509 how can i use ...
I am working for a customer on an enterprise site containing many 6509's. We have built a test environment and upgraded a chassis from sup720 running 12.2(18)SXF15 to VS-S2T-10Gb running 12.2(50)SY on the management card. I have noticed and so has the customer that there are many commands missing or added and they want an expalnation of these. I can do some of them easily, change syntax etc but for instance it has added a table-map, 50 vlans with a large MTU and large COPP policy.
What are these ?? and also is there a quick way resource etc to find out why the commands have been added/removed, for instance-mls ip cef load-sharing full is missing--
I currently have 3 core switches on my campus. They are 6509 catalyst switches. They currently are not interconnected to each other.I want to interconnect them to each other. The IP addresses of each core sit on a interface Loopback500. [code] How can I interconnect each core to each other and what IP scheme could I use. I want them to be straight L3 to each other.
We have a number of 6509s which generally have dhcp relay agents configured on the SVIs. The dhcp servers are centralised. Recently we've had one or two faults with misconfigured or faulty devices (blade server chassis and also printers) generating high volumes of dhcp discover packets and causing high cpu on the relevant 6500. I would like to rate limit these discover packets, which are layer 2 broadcasts. Storm control can't discriminate between different types of broadcasts and on a gig link would need to be set down at about 1% to have much effect on the problem. I've looked at CoPP and also mls hardware rate-limiting but as I understand it, these two features don't control broadcast traffic. I also looked at dhcp snooping but if an interface receives a high level of dhcp discover broadcasts, e.g. over 100pps, I don't want it to go error-disabled (as this would knock down the whole edge switch), just to drop the excess packets.
I am trying to set up an ASR with 10Gb connectivity. I noticed a new card that does not appear to show up in any data sheets. This card is considerably less expensive than the other SPAs and I am wondedring what the differentiators are for this card. I would also be interested in what tranceiver type this card supported.
I'm looking at provisioning a Catalyst 4500 with a WS-X4712-SFP+E module to allow for future 10Gb connectivity via 10Gb SFP+ interfaces. These cards are backwards compatible with standard 1Gb SFP interfaces but I'm wondering about the other way around; ie. can you populate these blades with 10Gb SFP+ interfaces when they connect to Catalysts with only 1Gb SFP interfaces at the other end?
The data sheets don't really explain this. It seems pointless getting 10Gb SFP+ interfaces for the 4500 when it's only 1Gb at the access layer end, but these access switches will be replaced in the near future (~12 months) and if the 10Gb SFP+ interfaces support connections at 1Gb speeds upfront, it would mean I could retain these interfaces when the access switches upgrade to 10Gb connectivity capabilities down the track. Does the 10Gb SFP+ interfaces are compatible with 1Gb SFP's or only other 10Gb SFP+ interfaces?
Created two 6509s as VSS with just one 10gb connection?I know it is recommended to use both the 10gb connections on the sup-720 from below configuration guide
" Information about VSL Topology # A VSS contains two chassis that communicate using the VSL, which is a special port group. Configure both of the 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports on the supervisor engines as VSL ports. "
I have two 3750 stacks that are currently connected using two1GB fiber connections in an etherchannel. I now added new switches to each stack with 10GB modules in them. We would like to bring up the 10GB connection, but still have one of the 1GB lines as a backup, or even the whole etherchannel. Is there a way for us to make the 10GB the main and the 1GB the standby?
For a simple 4x sites design for backup consolidation (3x sites connected to one central site), does the design in the attached JPEG make sense and is the configuration achievable using the specified parts?
Brief Explanation: - Each site is to have servers with 2x 10Gb/s Ethernet (both teamed/bonded/etc) and one NIC on each of the 2x switches in the site (if possible). Each site will also have 2x Cisco Nexus 5596UP Switch (though the P version may be used instead of the UP). - Two of the sites are within 10KM of the central site - The last site is about 35KM from the central site - It is required to have a minimum bandwidth of 10Gb/s between any site and the central site - I have specified 10Gb/s LW SFP+ and 10Gb/s LW SFP+ (for the 2x 10KM and 1x 35KM sites) - are there any special licenses needed? - as asked before, can such a "simple" design work as-is? - what sort of single-mode fiber would fit the bill (especially for the 40KM link) - 9nm?
I have configured about 20 of these switches now, and notice in the port listings a TE1/1//1 TE1/1/2 and GI1/1/1 GI1/1/2 uplink port. There are only two uplink SFP+ ports. I now have a reason to install with a 1Gb uplink to the Core. I am using a GLC-LH module at each end. I did configure the TE1/1/1 port for the uplink. Does not work though..Do I need to configure the two GI1/1/1 and 1/1/2 ports for uplink, remove the TE configuration for the uplink to work? Using the UNIVERSAL code with a LANBase license.
I am having trouble updating the epld image on the 10gb Module of Nexus 7k. we have two nexus and two 10gb module. Tried the other one and it worked fine. its jsut the first one that has problems with the epld image. i have tried on both the nexus on two different slots and still the same error.
I get the following error:
Chain connectivity is broken while upgrading the FPGA. (Error Number : 36)
We are trying to connect 2 nexus 5558UP (5.1.(3)N1(1)) with 10G-SFP+-LR interfaces. The interfaces are not genuine cisco's (smartoptics) but as far as we can tell, they are accepted by the hardware. If we take a look at the optical levels, we can see that the switches can see eachother (double-checked by bringing down one interface to see if optical levels really disappears) on optical level, well within limits. I found a notice about changing debounce timers but this doesn't work, setting it to 0 or 1000 doesn't make a difference. Copies of the different show int commands can be found at the end of this text.

Any experience with bundling a 10GB interface on a 3750G-16TD-S with a WS-C3750X-48T-S with a 10GB interface. I have worked with 5 different TAC engineers and so far I have not gotten an answer on why the switch will not let me bundle the 10GB with another 10GB interface.
Same switch Stack – not a cross stack.
Tried every configuration possible with no luck. I originally thought it might be the stack-ring speed – I corrected that today and it is running at 32GB –
The only thing I can think of now is it might be a hardware limitation on the 3750G-16TD-S ?
Q. What performance of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet port on the Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-16TD switches?
A. The Ten Gigabit Ethernet uplink on the Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-16TD switches is 1.25:1 oversubscribed and provides maximum throughput of 8Gb/s. –
I have a catalyst 4506 switch with one sup-engine WS-X45-SUP6 L-E, which consist of two X2-10GB-SR Transceiver( CISCO).IOS on the sup-engine is cat4500e-ipbase-mz.150-2.SG1.bin. IOS detected only one X2-10GB-SR Transceiver in Ten1/2. When I insert the X2-10GB-SR Transceiver in Ten1/1
C4K_GLMMAN-3-X2PLUGGABLESEEPROMREADFAILED: Failed to read seeprom on port Te1/1. Reinsert X2 m
But the problem is i need two X2-10GB-SR Transceiver for Uplink.
specifying Cisco devices and I've made an error.I have 2 Catalyst 2960S switches (C2960S-24PS-L).Based on this snippet of web copy from the Cisco website:What's new for the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches with LAN Base Software: # 10 and 1 Gigabit Ethernet uplink flexibility with Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+), providing business continuity and fast transition to 10 Gigabit Ethernet I bought a cable assembly "SFP-H10GB-CU3M" (3 meter copper twinax cable with 10GB SFPs on each end). Unfortunately, it appears after more careful reasearch that my specific model 2960S's are not directly compatible. , can I force these 10GB SFPs down to 1GB and get them to work with my switches or do I need to return and repurchase?
we have just purchased a few 3750x's that we intend to add to our 3750g stacks. We've purchased the 10gb uplink modules, C3kx-nm-10gt, but when they are installed they are not appearing in the switches web gui nor can you configure them correctly. If we upgrade a 3750x to 15.0.1 they seem to work fine. All of our current 3750g's are running 12.2(58)SE2 IPBASE so we don't really want to have to upgrade them all to 15.0.1
Are we missing something or do the 10gb modules only work properly with ios 15.0.1?
I have 3560's in my current environment, operating in the core/distro/access layers. The switches are in a star configuration, performs only layer 2 switching, and utilizes copper (no plans on moving to fiber).
With a fairly limited budget, I've been contemplating on upgrading the central node to a stacked 3750X to eliminate that single point of failure, and trunk the rest of the 3560's to the stacked switch. I wanted to be sure that the 3750X switches will be right for my environment (90-100 hosts), and if what I explained above is a good solution.
I'm also looking like to upgrade 6-7 of my servers (and SAN) with 10GB network cards. Do the ports on the 3750X have port densities capable of 10GB? If not, what switches provide that capability?
We got a requirement for 2 number of X2-10GB-SR line card WS-X45-SUP6-E in WS-C4506-E.Customer want to connect with Fujitsu primary server . they have 10 gig module so i guess it will support with that.Also a doubt this X2-10GB-SR we can directly connect the firber sc multimode cable write no additional sfp required write .And for my knowledge if i use CVR-X2-SFP. I think to multimode sfp we have to insert write so do we get to 10 gig ports in one slot or how is it .
I know that the C3KX-NM-10GT network module has two (copper) ports that support speeds of 1Gps or 10Gps. Could this module work with one port at 1Gb and the second port at 10gb simultaneosly? It's possible to work each port of the module with different speed (one port working on 1Gb mode and the other working on 10Gb mode)?
My manager ordered some Cisco X2-10GB-LR in hopes of having a 10GB uplink between two buildings. We put those modules on the switch and we are getting link flap errors, then the ports goes into err-disabled state.
I was later told there is a couple of "hops" between the buildings, it could be a patch panel or a fiber switch, I do not know at this point. My guess is, we are getting link flap because the "hops" are only running at 1GB. Would this be a typical sympton of the link flap error message? and is there any way to test if there is switches inbetween our routers?
Due to a bug int the IOS (F4 loosing routing information) i needed to upgrade the IOS from 15.0.1-M4 to the latest one which is 15.1.Is it ok to do without valid Smartnet contract? Cisco website allowed me to download the IOS and then put it on the router.Due you need some sort of a license to upgrade the IOS?
