Hi Experts,

We currently have a Cisco 4507R-E with 6 blades configured. We need to add a new blade which will have 48 RJ-45 ports. What is the process to add this new blade in terms of IOS and physically adding it as well?

TIA

Physically they are hot swappable, so you can just plug it in.

IOS would depend on how your current blades are configured.

Would be something like

!
interface GigabitEthernet<bladenumber>/<portnumber>
 switchport access vlan <vlannumber>
 switchport mode access
!

or

!
interface FastEthernet<bladenumber>/<portnumber>
 switchport access vlan <vlannumber>
 switchport mode access
!

This depends on the type of blade (provide your config for more detail).

<these are places where you need to put config specific information>

Its plug-n-play device. so insert the card in empty slot, wait for green/active light and its ready to use.
