Cisco 6509 - How to configure new WS-X6316-GE-TX Module in switch

Dear Experts,

I'm planning on installing a new ws-x6316-ge-tx module in my 6509. I've found the hardware install guide which is pretty straight forward. But I'm in need of some help on the steps to do the basic config of the new module after it's installed.

What's typically required to get a new card up and running?

TIA,

Mike

Plug it in. Connect the cables. Configure the interfaces.

There's really not much to it.

Hi Don,

Thanks, that sounds pretty easy. One last question. Can this be performed while the switch is up and running?

Regards,

Mike

Yes. Most 6500 modules are hot swappable.

From: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/hardware/Module_Installation/Mod_Install_Guide/02ethern.html

Note All 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Ethernet modules are hot-swappable.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ho Don,

I get a Power Deny after installing the modules.  Module 8 is the new module.

Any ideas why this would happen?

Thx,

Mike

Checked the power usage and I see there isn't enough power for the new card. But why does it show slot 2 [Redundant Sup) is using 145.32 Watts and 3.46 Amps? There's nothing in Slot 2, or is this normal for a Supervisor?

Thx,

Mike

Power is reserved for the supervisors whether they are installed or not.

When power capacity is exceeded, linecards are disabled from the bottom up (i.e. starting with slot 9 in a 6509).

Thanks Don,

Looks like a new [larger] power supplies are in my future.
