Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Crash When Upgrading Supervisor Card

Nov 23, 2011

Problem I have encountered when upgrading a Cisco 6509 chassis with a new supervisor card from Sup2 to Sup 720b. The 6509 loads and then crashes completely, and when rebooted reloads into rommon.The same upgrade was performed on a similar switch with no apparent problems.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Upgrading Supervisor In Cat 4500?

Feb 20, 2012

I have a 4510R-E chassis which currently has a single supervisor 5 installed.
We are now looking at upgrading the supervisor to a Sup6. Now the question is this, can I install the Sup6 into the redundant cpu slot and then perform a failover to get the new switch working without any noticable downtime.
I'm not sure what having a Sup V and a Sup 6 in at the same time will do to the backplane.
Otherwise I have to take the switch down and then install the card and software manually.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Upgrading Supervisor Engine On 4006?

Nov 3, 2011

I have an older 4006 with a Supervisor II+.  We now need OSPF support, which the Sup II+ does not provide.  I have access to a Supervisor III (WS-X4014), which will provide OSPF support.  Question is, are there any gotchas to shutting down the switch, replacing Supervisor Engines and then powering up?  What about the flash card?  On my current system, it appears that I am only using bootflash: , which is where the IOS resides (see below).  Since my startup config is in nvram and my IOS is in bootflash, what's the purpose of the flash card in slot0: ?  and where does NVRAM and bootflash actually live on a 4006 ( on the Supervisor Engine?)
sh bootvar
BOOT variable = bootflash:cat4500-ipbase-mz.122-31.SGA11.bin,1;,1;
CONFIG_FILE variable does not exist
BOOTLDR variable does not exist

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Upgrading Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor

Jan 8, 2012

Does a new Cisco Catalyst 4500 series supervisor 7L-E model WS-X45-SUP7L-E is backward compatible with a Cisco Catalyst 4500 series chassis model 4507R? I've checked on Cisco website for that Supervisor and it shows only new chassis models WS-C4507R+E and R-E, but what about old type of chassis? We need to upgrade that Supervisor as it's out of line, but we don't really want to buy a new chassis as well as it's going to be very pricy.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Upgrading Memory For Redundant Supervisor Modules Nexus 7K18?

Mar 6, 2012

I have a doubt about upgrading Memory in Redundant Supervisor Modules Nexus 7K18, i read the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Hardware Installation and Reference Guide, and the process for upgrading the memory in redundant supervisors do not says that i can have a lose of service, but it also says that both supervisor modules must have the same amount of memory for redundancy to work;If the switch has two supervisor modules, both must have the same amount of memory. If you upgrade the standby supervisor module to 8 GB of memory, you must then switch the active supervisor to standby and upgrade the new standby supervisor to 8 GB of memory.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Supervisor IOS Upgrade

Oct 16, 2012

We are trying to upgrade the IOS on one of our 6509 switches. We have two 720 10GE supervisors running in SSO. Our procedure is reload the standby supervisor with the new IOS. We understand that you can only use one console connection when in RPR mode so we rely on the active supervisor giving us information that the standby unit is up and running.
The problem we have is that when we do a "show Module" on the switch the online diagnostics for the standby supervisor comes back us unknown. [code] We believe the active supervisor can see the standby supervisor because when we save the configuration we get a message saying that the config is sync'd with the standby router. We have a TAC case raised to investigate. We are upgrading from 12.2(33) SXI1 to 12.2(33) SXJ3

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Supervisor Upgrade With FWSM?

Oct 8, 2012

We are planning to upgrade the IOS on our two 6509E supervisors in the next few weeks. We currently run IOS 12.2(33) SXI1 and are upgrading to 12.2(33) SXJ3. At the moment the two supervisors are in SSO mode and after reading many articles it says that when the images are different on the two supervisors they are in RPR mode. When you then reload the active supervisor it will reboot all the line cards.
1. Is above correct? Will my line card reload?

2. We also have a FWSM installed, When/If the line cards are rebooted does the FWSM also reboot?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 / 4900 - Network Down Cause Switching Supervisor With Redundancy

Jan 11, 2012

we've had an issue with our network, we have 2 6509 connected with redundancy, which are connected with 2 x 4900 Switches, from which are connected to a ESX Chassis for visualization, the thing is that the ESX stopped working, and the 4900 switches, and the main core were suffering from overload, they hang on it very well, in order to stop the overload, one of the links to the ESX Chassis were disconnected from one of the 4900 switches. The CPU usage from the 4900 and the core(6509) went down below 40%, and then they started to migrate the virtual servers from the chassis to another 2 chassis that were added right after. They were actually working well, but suddenly the 6509 changed to the other supervisor after everything was OK. We were wondering what could have been the cause of this, maybe the virtual servers migrations, maybe the overload from the ESX ? We also had a few question, is there any need to reload the cores every few months as a planned task ? Because the cores have been up for more than 1 year. And also is there any kind of of tool to monitor the CPU status, or the status overall from the cores or the switches ?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - Upgrading Switching Infrastructure

Apr 11, 2012

The have around 80 staff and I think the current infrastructure is overkill for the size of the company. The current kit is old and they have no GB ethernet ports. They currently have:-

Core Switch:
1x Cisco c6509with a 48 port fast ethernet module (WS-X6248-RJ-45)
and an 8 port fibre module (WS-X6408A-GBIC)

I'm looking to replace this with something with 72 ethernet ports and 8 fibre ports

Access Switches:
2x 3500Replacement needs at least 48 ports and 2 fibre modules each

and 2x 5500Replacement needs at least 72 ports and 2 fibre modules each.

Cisco LAN :: 6509-e Best Way To Swap Out Supervisor Module

Mar 28, 2012

We have a 6509-e (WS-C6509-E V04) with (4) (WS-X6148-GE-TX) 48 port modules and a supervisor 32 (WS-SUP32-GE-3B).We purchased a supervisor 720 (WS-SUP720-3B) and (2) (WS-6708-10G-3C) 8 port fiber modules and (1) WS-X6748-GE-TX)48 port module to add to the switch. My question is what is the best way to swap out the supervisor module? Can the SUP720 be added as a standby module so that the config can be transferred? Probably a long shot. Is there anything in this swap that I should be concerned with? The other three modules should be pretty straight forward.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3560X Crash And Reboot On IOS 15.0(2)SE

Jan 24, 2013

I have 3560X-24T-S switches with IP Services loaded at remote sites that I have been having troubles with.  Originally, they had IOS 12.2(58)SE1 on them.  I have up to four diverse paths via point-to-point microwave at the remote sites.  The Microwave equipment is by Microwave Networks and is a Prodeus M series which Ethernet support.  The original issue manifested itself as hardware loopback errors on some of the ports that were connected to the microwave links.  
My experience in the past has been that when a hardware loopback error occurred it is usually a bad switch port.  In this case however, if I disconnected all of the microwave Ethernet links and rebooted the switch and then connected the Ethernet connections to the microwave links again, everything works fine.  No hardware loopback errors.  That is, until the next switch reboot.  Then the hardware loopback error would return.  Interestingly, it would come back on different ports connected to the microwave links every time.  So if a reboot was done without disconnecting the microwave Ethernet links the hardware loopback error would change from one microwave link to another after each reboot.
I then went through and read the lengthy release notes for IOS version 15.0(2)SE and found several fixes that I thought could fix my issue.  So I downloaded it and updated a couple of the offending switches (not all of them were having this problem).  After going through the second update required to resolve the 'open file error' that happens going between 12.2(58)SE1 and 15.0(2)SE the problem seemed to be resolved on the offending switches.  So, I went ahead and updated the IOS on all of the switches with point-to-point microwave connections.
I now have one switch that was updated that is crashing and rebooting continuously when the Ethernet links for the point-to-point microwave are connected.  Again, if I disconnect all the microwave links and reboot, it comes up fine ands stays fine when the microwave links are connected back up.  It will work fine until the next reboot and then the crash and reboot loop starts over again.  Below is a portion of the putty log when the crash occurs:

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Stack Crash

Oct 22, 2012

We had an "Event" on our process network at the mill yesterday.  I connected a new WS-C3560V2-48TS-S to our network and we lost communications with all of the other switches.
The core is a stack of 3 WS-C3750 switches, one is a -24TS-1U and the other two are -12S-S.  These connect to 10 WS-C3560G-24TS and 5 Rockwell Stratix 8000 (IE3000) over fiber.  I am planning on replaceing two 24 port switches with the new 48 port.  I had the switch configured and running at my work bench.  It was connected to the network with one sfp module and ran all weekend with no issues.  Yesterday afternoon I took it to the network cabinet and installed it.  I powered it up and connected two sfp modules to the fiber patch panel and made the connection at the core stack. 
Everything looked OK.  I had communication link lights working on everything.  Within minutes, we lost communication with every switch connected to the core stack.  I shut down the new 48 port switch and the network slowly came back up.
The new 48 port is configured with Flex Links for the fiber redundancy protocol and was connected to each of the 3750G-12S-S stack members.
I though it might have been a power issue but the stack is UPS protected and shows it has been up for over 10 weeks.  I'm not even sure "Crash" is the best decription for what happened.  The new switch has a high enough IP address that it would not take over as a IGMP Querier.

Cisco WAN :: VS Based 720 Supervisor As Minimum To Support Full BGP On Catalyst 6509-E

Nov 18, 2011

I'm currently in the process of evaluating potential equipment options for a Core Router/Switch that will be running BGP with several Tier 1 ISP's, the table download from each ISP will be full (300,000+ Routes). I was looking at a 6509-E with dual SUP720-3BXL supervisors but after reading the below link I'm a little concerned by the maximum routes table: [URL]
Do I have to go to the VS based 720 supervisor as a minimum to support full BGP on a 6509-E? Does any experience of the above switch + supervisor combination under a full BGP table, how well does it work? I'm looking at long term using this as a consolidated core (i.e. a VRF for the Global Internet routing table + a VRF for internal data center traffic, plus maybe some more shared VRF's).
Would I be better keeping a Core switch by itself and just buying edge routers to run BGP?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750x Master Switch Crash?

About an hour ago I had the master switch on one of my 3750x (WS-C3750X-48PF-S) stacks crash. The only two items we've found that could have caused this issue are the roughly 1.3 million big buffer misses and several of the following in the syslog
SLT:WARN:No exporter configured for smartlog! I do not have smartlogging turned on, nor is there a netflow exporter configured
sh logging smartlogsmartlog is disabledsmartlog exporter:smartlog pkt length: 64 Total pkts processed: 0Total DHCP Snooping pkts processed: 0Total DAI pkts processed: 0Total IPSG pkts processed: 0Total ACL pkts processed: 0
I did not see any traffic spikes prior to the crash.
This stack has been stable since it's last IOS upgrade from 12.2(58)SE1 to 12.2(58)SE2 back in October 2011 so this has me a little worried.

Distributed Forwarding Card For Supervisor Engine 2T

Dec 23, 2011

I was looking to 6500 series switches. I saw DFC4 module (WS-F6K-DFC4-A, WS-F6K-DFC4-AXL) and (WS-F6K-DFC4-E, WS-F6K-DFC4-EXL). Data sheet for supervisor engine 2T wrote that for maximum performance you should DFC4. I'm a bit confused. I didn't any useful information about it:

1. DFC4 is a separate module(consumes 1 slot)? Does it have any ports on it?

2. Is it a daughter card? If yes, should it be installed on supervisor or it should be installed on line cards?
