Cisco Switching/Routing :: VSS With VS-S720-10G-3C And WS-X6748-GE-TX Compatibility?
Feb 7, 2012
We are upgrading two standalone 6509E chassis to a VSS system with new VS-S720-10G-3C cards. The 6509's have WS-X6748-GE-TX card with DFC3B daughter cards (see below). The compatablity matrix (see below) states that 67xx cards are supported but it goes on to state DFC3C or DFC3CXL cards are needed. So does this mean that the existing WS-X6748-GE-TX cards have to be upgraded or will they be supported?

I have a WS-X6748-GE-TX with the WS-F6700-CFC daughter card. Is it possible to replace the WS-F6700-CFC daughter card with a WS-F6K-DFC4-AXL to make this compatible with the SUP-2T? Or, are there differences between the CFC and DFC base modules?
we have a chassis 6513-E and a module WS-X6748-GE-TX, I'd like to know if could I put this module in any slot, since the documentation from Cisco says that any slot from a chassis 6500-E Series can support this module. And then in the documentation of WS-X6748-GE-TX says that this module is not compatible in the slots 1-8 of the 6513 chassis, only from 9th to 13th slots, in those slots from the 6513-E we already have 4x WS-X6748-GE-TX, and we'd like to know if could we put the module in the rest of the slots. The 6513, and 6513-E is kind of confusing.
we purchase only Cisco Supervisor Engine VS-S720-10G and use it in our old C6509-E chassis.Now the supervisor engine was dead,(means not working and no LED's are ON). How can i claim the RMA from cisco?
We purchase from one of our partner. We send it to them,they are not able to find the Serial number from the Supervisor Engine module (Because lot of serial numbers are on the board). Also the customer through the catoon.
Now how we can know which is exact serial number of sup? How to get RMA from the Cisco on which serial number?
I got a new VS-S720-10G it had 122-33.SXH8b on there. I had to downgrade it to 12.2.33.SXI1 to match our other switches. I installed the file I use in all the other switches, s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI1.bin but the Sup is now is only booting up only to ROMMON mode.

We have 7 interfaces with rj45 connections.. all around 100Mbit per connection .. most likely in the future we will need a couple more interfaces.. i was thinking it would be better to take a WS-X6516-GE-TX card then a FE card as for example a WS-X6148-RJ-45 .Now we want to implement a 7606 with a SUP720-3BXL with 1GB dram for the RP(MSFC3)... so enough memory to support the 2x a FULL BGP table to two peers.
Q : Does the SUP720-3BXL work well with two peers sending the FULL BGP table ?
Q : And does that also work with a WS-X6516-GE-TX connected to the two peers sending the FULL BGP table ? .. or is it better to take a 6724 linecard with a DFC3-BXL so that the 6724 will lookup routes locally instead a 6516 will have the S720- perform the routing ? I know that adding the DFC's increases the bandwidth of the chassis significantly (40gbps per slot most 6700 linecards ,and 20gbps for the 6724 which is 1:2 oversubscribed )
Q: Or is it better to connect the two peers to the two SFP interfaces on the SUP720 , and connect the small routers and customer networks to the 6516 linecard?
I have a cisco 6509 switch in which i have 2 SUPs. I am using 3 Qty. of WS-X6748-GE-TX in the same switch. First 24 ports of module 1 and are not working. I replace the faulty moldule with the working one but now the new (good) module's first 12 ports stopped working. But when I insert the good card (the replaced one with the faulty) in other chassis it works fine.
its a hardware problem or just not get power to module 1 for module WS-X6748-GE-TX? this is the capture from show module and sh log :

currenly running a C6509E, with a WS-SUP720-3B running IOS level S72033-adventerprisek9_wan-MZ.122-22.SXH3. I want to install a WS-X6748-GE-TX blade and would like NOT to have to upgrade IOS at this time. Future migrations are planned. Can this be done?
I'm trying to configure a egress netflow in a 6500 (VSS) with VS-S720-10G supervisor. I foud some old posts and understood that netflow wasn't supported on 6500 but i found a new document and it seems that netflow is supported in Supervisor Engine 2T:[URL] Does the netflow still not supported in VS-S720-10G? It's weird because the command is supported:
#sh run int vlan 4 Building configuration... Current configuration : 353 bytes ! interface Vlan4 ip address X.X.X.X 255.255.0.0
I have catalyst 6500s with two VS-S720-10Gs, one is in Active and one is in Hot state. Both Sup cards have two 10G uplink ports. How does the traffic forwarding works in this case on the uplink ports? Do these uplink ports actively forward traffic or it is only the uplinks ports on Active that forward traffic? I see CDP neighbors on both Active and Hot SUPs uplinks ports - it indicates that packets are flowing on both cards.
I want all uplink ports on both SUPs to actively forward traffic. Does it work? What is the config for this?
we have 2 WS-X6516-GE-TX, WS-X6516A-GBIC, and a WS-X6748-GE-TX with a WS-F6700-CFC daughtercard
our sup is a WS-SUP720-3B
we are experiencing packet loss for everything connected in the WS-X6748-GE-TX blade, right now we dont have any production device in that blade due to the packet loss we are experiencing.
this switch was running hybrid before it is now running native ios, however I can't recall if we didn't have that packet loss before. do i need to update a firmware of the card or daughtercard (if this is possible, can't say i've done it before).
I've installed second WS-X6748-SFP linecard on my catalyst 6509 with sup720-3b and after that NAM-2 and IDSM-2 module become inaccessible from management network. I can only login with session slot N proc 1.When I execute #hw-module module 4 reset, modules become accessible.

We have connected a single F5 box with dual links to 2 different Cisco Catalyst switches using 802.1Q trunks. F5 is configured with RSTP mode and on Cisco Switch RPVST+ is configured.STP root bridge is hardcoded on the Cisco side. Loop Guard is globally enabled.On F5 STP link type is Auto, STP Edge port is disabled since that port is connected to the cisco switch.When we are failing over the F5 primary link to the secondary link we see 'Loop Inconsistent' on the cisco switch and things dont work after the failover.We have tried configuring the F5 as STP passthrough but that doesn't fix out the issue.I have checked out the forums and found out following recommendations
1. Configuring MSTP bw F5 and Cisco for better compatibility (Not possible from Cisco side because of a major change in large production setup)
2. Configuring VSS in Cisco switches (not possible due to hardware limitation)
3. Connecting F5 using single links to each switch (redundancy compromised)
I am wondering that on which default vlan does the F5 STP instance0 sends the STP BPDUs ? the term used on Cisco side is native vlan and others use PVIDs; that F5 default vlan should match the native vlan on cisco trunk side.
we have to upgrade to nxos 5.2(4) but i cannot find same image for epld , i only see a downlable image with version 5.2(3). Do you see any problem if we upgrade kick and system image to 5.2(4) with epld 5.2(3)?
The below nexus 5020 nx-os version and type/revision of my GLC-T is compatible with each other? I noticed also the "Transceiver calibration is invalid" when i do show int e1/8 transceiver details , what does it mean?
I've inherited a network. It looks to have been setup as 10/100 originally, using Netgear FSM726S switches with fibre connecting the switches. The fibre to copper conversion is mainly achieved with 10/100 media convertors rather than GBICs - not sure why - though there are some GBICs in use. Some of the "key" switches have been upgraded to Cisco Catalyst 2960G switches, but nothing else has been touched, so most of the network still runs at 100MB.
I have a Cisco 3825 router with a sfp module .(multi mode Cisco sfp ) connected to a Alcatel switch with fiberxon sfp. On a Cisco router the sfp card is been recognized and is seen when i used " show ip int brief " or show inventory commands. However the line protocol is down.
is their any compatibility issue with one side Cisco sfp and other side fiberxon sfp ? we have tested Cisco sfp -------Cisco sfp works fiberxon ----------------fiberxon works .
I am looking to see if Nexus 5596UP & Nexus 2248TP GE compatible with SFP-10G-SR? The reason is because a consultant was hired on to "design" the network layout and has decided to purchase Cisco SFP+ Copper Twinax Cables which have a 10M limit. A small handful of the Data Center racks are 10-15M away... just out of reach of the Twinax. I would prefer NOT to move the LAN row so that it is more centered in the room. Can I use the SFP-10G-SR to connect the 2 switches (5596 & 2248) together? This SFP has a 26M reach on standard 10gig fiber, the small cost increase per connection is of no concern.
I am getting conflicting info about this, and need to get confirmations.Is the older 6513 (non E) model compatible with WS-X6407-10GE blade?The switch we're getting this for have WS-SUP720-3B, 6000W power supply, and WS-C6K-13SLT-FAN2.From what I read they are compatible if entered in slot 9-13, but I also heard that 10GE modules are not compatible with the non E chassis.
