Cisco WAN :: Cat 6500 IOS Upgrade - Installing Secondary SUP720 In 6509-E

Nov 21, 2011

I will be installing a secondary SUP720 in a 6509-E and will be upgrading the IOS on the existing SUP which is on  122-18.SXF6. I've read that this release has passed End of Critical Maintenance earlier this you. I thinking of upgrading the IOS to 12.2.33-SXJ1(ED) or 12.2.33-SXI8(ED) (possible more stable), but i'm not sure if i need any step upgrades from the current version. The SUP meets the required hardware specs and I will also be upgrading the ROMMON to 12.2(17r)SX7 first.
I have alot of experience upgrading IOS on routers and switches, but i just need to now if there are any gotchas that i need to know for the upgrade on the SUP.
The other issue is i don't believe the current IOS has been installed, are there any issue running on an IOS not installed. Patching is not available since the system is not running from an installed image. To install please use the "install file" command.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - Upgrade Sup720 To Sup2T In VSS Cluster

Jun 21, 2012

I support an active VSS cluster using 2 x 6509E chassis with single Supervisor 3C modules in each chassis. I want to replace these with Supervisor 2T modules. All my service modules and line cards are supported with the Sup2Ts (I will also be implementing 6908 modules). Is there a document on the Cisco site for this? I haven't found one though I can find plenty that describe how to do a software upgrade.
(Note, I have a 3rd (non VSS) 6509E chassis that is also part of this core network and that will maintain VTP/V LAN's etc).

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6500 - Upgrade From SUP720 To SUP2T With New Chassis?

Apr 28, 2013

We recently purchased 2 Cisco 6500 series switches (with Sup 2T). These switches will be replacing our old 2 6500 series switches (with Sup 720).
We have 70 vlans and 90+ closet switches (2900) connecting the core switches We have 2 WLC connected to the core switch. We also have a 1 x 1 connection to a VSS switch which in turn connects to our Server Co-Location data center utilizing IPSec & GRE tunnel to connect to our Server Co-Location data center.
Our routing protocol is EIGRP. Our VTP domain at Server Co-Location is separate from our location “A” campus. I was wondering what is the best way to migrate our Core switches at location “A” campus.
The requirement is we would like to replace these switches with minimum downtime.

Cisco WAN :: Upgrade Sup720 6509 Chassis - Configure Sup2T Management Ports?

Jul 1, 2012

We've just invested in a pair of Sup2Ts to upgrade a Sup720 6509 chassis but I'm unsure exactly how the management port(s), aka the Connectivity Management Processor (CMP), should be configured (and patched) in a dual supervisor system?Is each CMP an independent entity or is the management interface configuration (IP address, gateway, etc) replicated between supervisors?If it's the latter then do both management ports need to be physically connected at the same time?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509E - Installing And Setting Up Second Sup720

Feb 27, 2013

Trying to find documentation on the proper procedure for installing a second sup720 into our 6509-E chassis for sup redundancy. I have found documents that tout how 'cool' and 'awesome' NSF/SSO, and all that is, but haven't found any docs on installing a second sup720 into a chassis that is currently in production and is only running one sup720. In all the years that this chassis has been out, there must me a documented procedure out here to explain this.I have been through the following pages, and have found nothing to this effect.

Cisco Application :: 6509-E SUP720 And SLB Limitations?

Mar 21, 2012

We are looking into replacing our current Windows NLB configuration with a SLB solution as NLB creates some nasty multicast traffic.
We are currently curious about the limitations for running SLB without a dedicated ACE Module, will it handle line-rate speed (1 and 10 gbit) with SLB?
Does VSS introduce any limitations for SLB? Any other pitfalls/limitations we should be aware of?
Hardware info: 2x WS-C6509-E in VSS with VS-S720-10G (VS-F6K-PFC3C) running s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI7

Cisco WAN :: Sup720-10G 6509 - Multicasting In Same Vlan Broken

Oct 9, 2011

Currently we do not have multicat routing enabled on either of our 2x Sup720-10G 6509 Switches.  We have no intention of doing so either.  I am looking for clarification on how mutlicasting operates within a Vlan. 
IOS: s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin
Our Vlan has IGMP snooping enabled.  Here is the output.
6509Switch#sh ip igmp inter vlan 25
Vlan25 is up, line protocol is up
  Internet address is
  IGMP is disabled on interface
we do not want to disable IGMP due to this one concern that I can't find documented. If we disable IGMP snooping on the vlan, what happens to multicast packets with a TTL > 1.  Do they get flooded to the entire switch and all Vlans?  Or does it stay within the Vlan?

Cisco Wireless :: 6500 - Why WiSM2 Not Recommended In SUP720 Slots

Jun 27, 2012

I have a situation where a customer doesn't have the required power units installed in their 6500 for me to provision a WiSM2.They use a VSS pair with a single Sup720 in each. They have no intention of adding a second Sup to each chassis.

I need to justify why they can't use slot 6 (which has power reserved) if I am to get them to upgrade the PSU's. The documentation I've found says it is supported but not recommended.

Cisco :: Configure Netflow Catalyst 6500 With SUP720-10GE

Jun 5, 2012

I tried to configure netflow without success.
Setup is the following.
Cisco Catalyst 6509 with Sup720-10GE IOS 12.2(33)SHX7. There are around 30 L3 vlans configured on the switch. I'm only interested for the traffic on one L3 vlan which is the connection to wan cloud.
I wanna see only the traffic that goes to and come from the wan. On other Catalyst where I have routed interfaces i successfully configured netflow. I read a lot in the forums and documentations but i didn't find the right one.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Redundant Sup720 - Slave Boots Into ROMmon

Oct 24, 2012

I'm fairly new to networking and need to migrate an old core to a new core. I have a 6509-e Switch that I had an RMA on one of my 720 sup cards. After receiving the sup card I swapped my slave out with the new one, expecting it to boot into ios. It booted into Roman. I tried to boot the image manually and it did the same thing. I also tried to boot from my flash and, again, booted into ROMmon.
Question: If i configure and change the boot to boot from image it tells me i need to reset or power cycle first. Will this reset the entire switch? As this is production I'd rather not.
I am at home now, but I can supply any logs/hardware model/configs tomorrow. I thought I would see if this is an easy fix.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Web-sense Security Gateways Connected To 2x 6500 SUP720

Dec 8, 2011

I have 2x v10000 Websense Security Gateways that are connected to 2x 6500 SUP720. When I turn on cluster management function between Websense appliance, they speak to each other only if they are connected in the same 6500. When they are connected one in every 6500 cluster management does not work. They are connected on the same physical vlan. Do I need multicast to be configured in the 6500 switches?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6500 Shutdown Interface On One Router / Deleted Secondary Address

I have just updated a VLAN interface on my router. I have two 6500's with GLBP configured. The particular interface had a primary and secondary IP address. I shutdown the interface on one router and deleted the secondary address then assigned the orignal secondary address to be the be the only address associated with the interface and enabled the interface and it came right back up...all looks good. I proceeded to do the same thing to the other router and once again all looked good. Now, I am able to PING the devices in the subnet from router, but am unable to ping them from any place else.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA5510 Secondary Firewall Crashes After Upgrade To 8.4.1

Jun 29, 2011

I have two ASA5510's set up in failover, and the secondary keeps crashing after doing the interface checks when bringing failover up. This only happens if I try to upgrade the image on the secondary to anything newer than 8.4.1 (I've tried with 8.4.1-11 and 8.4.2). The primary one run just fine with new images.
I don't have the exact error right now, as I need to do a screen capture from console. It's just a huge crash dump.Are there anything I might have missed during the upgrade? Should I cold-boot both the firewalls in the correct order?

Cisco WAN :: 6509 With Sup 720 Configuration Upgrade

Jan 20, 2011

I currently have this in our Sup720:
boot system flash bootflash:s72033-jk9o3sv-mz.122-17a.SX3.bin
boot bootldr sup-bootflash:s72033-psv-mz.122-17a.SX1.bin
I downloaded s72033-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5
I read the documentation on Upgrading Software Images on Catalyst 6000/6500 Series SwitchesURL

I was wondering do I copy the s72033-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5 to the sup-bootflash and bootflash?  In the example it also uses disk0: but I get a <No device available>. Also keep in mind we're upgrading the application and maintanence partitions also. So this is a big upgrade and I've never done this before.
I guess the 2 things I want to know is:
1) Can I copy the s72033-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5 to both the sup-bootflash and the bootflash?  Can I run it just copying it to the sup-bootflash?
2) It was my understanding that I only needed one image file for the upgrade but the documentation says I need
    "a. the main software image
     b. the bootloader image"
   Do I need another file?  I'm a little confused.  I did notice the files had different names and sizes and so do the ones on my current Sup 720.
And we are doing this tomorrow and I just happened to be reviewing the documentation one more time and somehow missed this.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Getting 6509 VSS IOS Upgrade?

May 15, 2012

Tonight we were performing an IOS upgrade on our 6509 VSS to 122-33.SXI6.  Both 6509's have dual Supervisor cards installed.  Initially we had problems with switch 2 slot 5 supervisor returning to rommon however switch 2 slot 6 supervisor loaded correctly.  After manually setting the boot var in rommon, switch 2 slot 5 supervisor reloaded correctly.
After all supervisor's were online we noticed when looking at " show switch virtual redundancy" that sw 1 & 2 slot 6 supervisors were running the correct IOS version but sw 1 & 2 slot 5 were running different IOS versions, however when looking at the show version we are running on the upgraded IOS???  See output below...
Why the active supervisor has loaded the incorrect IOS the VSS is running on the upgraded IOS?  I have verified the IOS was copied correctly to each supervisor bootdisk, I see no issues. 
My Switch Id = 1                Peer Switch Id = 2        Last switchover reason = none    Configured Redundancy Mode = sso     Operating Redundancy Mode = sso
