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 Wireless :: 6500 Unable To Reach WISM2 Management Interface

Mar 28, 2012

I've just reset our WISM2 in the test lab back to factory default as I needed to reconfigure the 6500 and the WISM2 itself. Bearing in mind I had it working before.I've just renamed and re-addressed some of the vlans so things flow better and make it easier to add more WISM2s in the future.Now I've run through the initial configuration and it's rebooted ok and show WISM status is showing Oper-Up and there's a port channel 407 been created as I would expect. However, I am unable to get to the management interface via GUI or SSH. In fact from the 6500 I can't even ping the management interface (but I can the service port).The Vlans have been changed in the 6500 config so it knows the native-vlan and service vlan etc and all the vlans are up/up.

Cisco Wireless :: 6500 - Unable To Connect Via GUI After Initial WISM2 Setup

Feb 7, 2013

I've installed our previous WISMs and other WISM2s previously and never had a problem.
6500 running SXJ2. WISM2 running (which is what the rest of our WISM2s are on)
Insert WISM and go through initial setup. Run a show wism status on the 6500, and show sysinfo on the WISM. All looks good. Service port and management vlans are up. From the 6500 I can ping the service port IP, but not the management IP. From the WISM I can't ping the managment default gw but I can the service port. Unable to get anything back from the GUI..not surprising as not even ping works.
Now, as I said I've done it this way many times fact I'm following my documentation from the last successful implementation and even adding in Cisco docs.

Cisco Wireless :: Remove WiSM2 From Catalyst 6500 Series Switch?

Jul 21, 2012

how to safely remove the WiSM2 from the Catalyst 6500 series switch? According to the documentation "Catalyst 6500 Series Wireless Services Module 2 Installation and Verification Note":

To remove the WiSM2, perform these steps:

Step1     Shut down the module by one of these methods: In privileged mode from the router prompt, enter the hw-mod module mod shutdown command. NoteIf you enter this command to shut down the module, you must enter the following commands in global configuration mode to restart (power down, and then power up) the module: Router# no power enable module modRouter# power enable module mod If the module does not respond to any commands, press the SHUTDOWN button located on the front panel of the module.

Step2     Verify that the WiSM2 shuts down. Do not remove the module from the switch until the POWER LEDis off.

But, in the case of Step1 (1st methods) I do not see a option "shutdown"  in the command "hw-mod module 3"...

All I prompted to enter is: c6500#hw-module module 3 ?

boot   Specify boot options for the module through Power Management Bus control register

reset          Reset specified component

simulate  Simulate options for the module Is it hidden options?

IOS version of c6500 is 12.2(33)SXJ1
In the case of Step2 (2nd methods) there is not any button on the front panel of the module?
And yet, it is better to remove the module configuration manually or use the command module clear-config prior to removing the module?

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 :: 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 :: 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 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 Wireless :: WISM2 7.0 To 7.2 Upgrade

Sep 17, 2012

We have some new WISM2 running, but now we need to upgrade their license to suport 1000 APs. So I am looking at upgrading the software to We are running WCS at the moment and got NCS with the new WISM2, so going to 7.3 and buying Prime Infrastructure is not an option at the moment, thus we are going for 7.2.
The thing is I can't seem to find much info about this upgrade. Is 7.0->7.2 a smooth upgrade? Do we need to do any configuration changes to the WISM2 or LAP1242? We are running H-REAP, will the change to FlexConnect be affected? I can't seem to find anything regarding requirements for 6500/SUP for running WISM2 7.2, do I need a certain software for that?

Cisco Wireless :: Get 250APs On Each WISM2-blade

Mar 13, 2013

I have a question regarding WISM2 DP and licensing.
Suppose i have a WISM2 with 7.0, 500AP license today and i activate WISM2-DP by upgrading to 7.2,Do i get 500 AP capacity for free (total 1000AP) or do i get 250APs on each WISM2-blade ?
If i get 500APs for free, why is Cisco selling an expensive licensed 1000 AP WISM2 ? I better buy a single-plane 500AP-WISM2 and upgrade it myself then...50% profit.
Is this the same for a WISM2-300 (supporting 300 APs) ?When i activate WISM2-DP here, do i get an extra 300 AP or an extra 500 APs ? Or 150AP on each blade ?

Firmware Version : 3.12.5 Build 100929 Rel. 57776n

I have a TP Link router model number: WR941N (under hardware version it says "v2/v3", that's why I put "not clear" under "hardware version" in the form). Whether it was possible to add even more slots for Port Forwarding for this router, the current hard limit is 16, and I would like to have more than that, what would be the procedure to do so?

Cisco Wireless :: 6509 / WiSM1 Upgrade To WiSM2?

Apr 5, 2012

My company has been contracted to upgrade the 2 WiSM1 modules on a 6509 for a customer.  The hardware isn't changing but the software is being upgraded to WiSM2.  The cutsomer has HUNDREDS of AP's and dozens of VLANs and subnets (large municipality and school district).
Cisco SE's have been pushing the customer to purchase the WCS 7 software (they've been managing these Controllers independantly) stating there is no mechanism to upgrade WiSM1 configs to WiSM2.  I am vaguely familiar with the cisco controllers but have little WiSM experience. So i feel like i'm working without a net here.
1) Any way to migrate from 1 to 2 without the WCS and without having to reinvent the wheel?
2)  How does the WCS make this transition easier?  What does it do to the WiSM1 configs to make them WiSM2 compatable?
