Cisco 7604 with 6708-10G-3CXL

Hi,

We currently have a Cisco 7604 Chassis that is running fine, but we want to add 10G functionality, so we would like to add a WS-X6708-10G-3CXL.

When we put the card in the chassis, it reports because an error "insuff cooling capacity" and refuses the boot the card. It says this card needs 84CFM of cooling to boot.

So far we've done the following,

Checked compatibility on chassis - http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/solutions/collateral/data-center-virtualization/data-center-switching/net_business_benefit0900aecd805348f3.html
Check SUP compatibility - http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/routers/7600-series-routers/product_data_sheet0900aecd8072579f.html

The error's we're getting are below,

                        Pwr-Requested  Pwr-Allocated  Admin Oper
Slot Card-Type          Watts   A @42V Watts   A @42V State State

hanpr01#sh env cooling all
fan-tray 1:
  fan-tray 1 type:
  fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK
chassis per slot cooling capacity: 70 cfm
ambient temperature: < 55C
  module 1 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
  module 3 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
  module 4 cooling requirement: 84 cfm

The unit shows it can only do 70 cfm per slot, while the 6708 requires 84 cfm per slot. Anyone have any ideas as to why the chassis isn't able to provide enough cooling for the card?

Someone mentioned there is a switch on the fan to run in full or variable speeds, and we've tried both. We've also tried new IOS's and 2 completely separate 7604 Chassis'.

Thanks

Does the Cisco 7604 IOS support your requirement of adding this in?

We are currently running the following IOS

c7600rsp72043-advipservicesk9-mz.122-33.SRE9.bin

And we've tried c7600rsp72043-advipservicesk9-mz.122-33.SRE5.bin.

Just today we tried the 15.1 Version of the advipservicesk9 and still no luck.

Cisco states that this RSP720 and 6708 are supported in IOS SRC release, which we are above, so it should work I believe

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/7600/Hardware/12-2SR_supported_hw/7600_hwd.html#wp1132797

Also, we are only running 110V AC lines. Does anyone know if this would effect the operation of the fan in the chassis? Does it need 220V AC lines to function at full operational speeds?

post a show inv.  You may have an old fan tray that is insufficient for your configuration.

Below is the show inventory.

The serials are all there, but because of security reason's I've removed them.

What is weird is that whenever we put the WS-X6708-10G-3CXL in the unit, the fan mod disappears from the show inv and show idprom fan-tray. It's like it's wiping the EEPROM (I hope that's the right term) data whenever we put the 6708 card in the chassis.

My first concern was that the fan tray needed to be High Speed or a Fan Tray 2, but it seems that the 7604 chassis only has one fan tray, and that's the high speed model, FAN-MOD-4HS. Maybe the hardware revision has something to do with it, but I couldn't find any info on that. We also realized there is a hard switch on the fan for Variable or Full Speed operation, and we've tried both modes with the same result, "insuff cooling"

We've tried this config with 2 different configured chassis' and 2 different WS-X6708-10G-3CXL cards.

Let me know if there's anything else I can provide.
Thanks

Your fantray looks fine.  If you've already checked IOS, the only other think I'd check is that theres no microcode/fpga upgrades required.

It was a hardware problem on the fan module.

Thanks for your suggestions.
