SIP and SSC Support

Table 2-1 lists the SIPs and SSCs that are supported on the Catalyst 6500 Series switch.


Note The Description column indicates the aggregate bandwidth supported by the SIP across all subslots, not per SPA subslot.

Checking For Hardware and Software Compatibility

To check the minimum software requirements of Cisco IOS software with the hardware installed on your router, Cisco maintains the Software Advisor tool on Cisco.com. This tool does not verify whether SIPs or SPAs within a system are compatible, but it does provide the minimum Cisco IOS requirements for individual hardware modules or components.


Note Access to this tool is limited to users with Cisco.com login accounts.


To access Software Advisor, click Login at Cisco.com, type "Software Advisor" in the SEARCH box, and click GO. Click the link for the Software Advisor tool.

Choose a product family or enter a specific product number to search for the minimum supported software release needed for your hardware.

Identifying Slots and Subslots for SIPs, SSCs, and SPAs

This section describes how to specify the physical location of a SIP, SSC, or SPA on the Catalyst 6500 Series switch using the command-line interface (CLI) to configure or monitor those devices.


Note For simplicity, any reference to "SIP" in this section also applies to the SSC.


Specifying the Slot Location for a SIP or SSC

The Catalyst 6500 Series switch supports different chassis models, each of which supports a certain number of chassis slots.


Note The Catalyst 6500 Series switch SIPs are not supported with a Supervisor Engine 1, Supervisor Engine 1A, Supervisor Engine 2, or Supervisor Engine 720-3A.


Figure 2-1 shows an example of a SIP installed in slot 6 on a Catalyst 6509 switch. The Catalyst 6509 switch has nine horizontally-oriented chassis slots, which are numbered 1 to 9 from right to left.

SIP subslot 0

SIP subslot 3

2

SIP subslot 1

Chassis slots 1-9 (numbered from top to bottom)

SIP subslot 2

   

Some commands allow you to display information about the SIP itself, such as the show module, show sip-disk, show idprom module, show hw-module slot, and show diagbus commands. These commands require you to specify the chassis slot location where the SIP that you want information about is installed.

For example, to display status and information about the SIP installed in slot 6 as shown in Figure 2-1, enter the following command:

Router# show module 6

For more information about SIP commands, refer to the Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.2SX Command References.

Specifying the SIP or SSC Subslot Location for a SPA

SIP subslots begin their numbering with 0 and have a horizontal or vertical orientation depending on the orientation of the SIP in the router chassis slot, as shown in the "SIP, SSC, and SPA Product Overview" chapter of the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch SIP, SSC, and SPA Software Configuration Guide.

Figure 2-1 shows an example of a Cisco 7600 SIP-200 installed with a vertical orientation on a Cisco 7609 router. The Cisco 7600 SIP-200 supports four subslots for the installation of SPAs. In this example, the subslot locations are oriented vertically as follows:

SIP subslot 0—Top-right subslot

SIP subslot 1—Bottom-right subslot

SIP subslot 2—Top-left subslot

SIP subslot 3—Bottom-left subslot

Figure 2-2 shows the faceplate for the Cisco 7600 SIP-200 in a horizontal orientation.

Figure 2-2 Cisco 7600 SIP-200 Faceplate

In this view, the subslot locations in a horizontal orientation are as follows:

SIP subslot 0—Top-left subslot

SIP subslot 1—Top-right subslot

SIP subslot 2—Bottom-left subslot

SIP subslot 3—Bottom-right subslot

The SIP subslot numbering is indicated by a small numeric label beside the subslot on the faceplate.

Some commands, such as the show idprom module and show hw-module subslot commands, allow you to display information about the SPA itself. These commands require you to specify both the physical location of the SIP and SPA in the format slot/subslot.

slot—Specifies the chassis slot number in the Catalyst 6500 Series switch where the SIP is installed.

subslot—Specifies the secondary slot of the SIP where the SPA is installed.

For example, to display the operational status for the SPA installed in the first subslot of the SIP in chassis slot 6 shown in Figure 2-1, enter the following command:

Router# show hw-module subslot 6/0 oir

For more information about SIP commands, refer to the Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.2SX Command References.

Cisco 7600 SIP-200 Memory Installation and Removal

Figure 2-4 shows the location of the DIMMs on a 7600-SIP-200.

To install a DIMM, slide the DIMM into the slot. The retaining clips will secure the DIMM in place.

To remove a DIMM, separate the two retaining clips and pull the DIMM from the slot.

Cisco 7600 SIP-200 Default DIP Switch Settings

If SW3 and SW10 switches are present on the board, make sure that they are set to the default settings, as shown in Table 2-6. See Figure 2-5 for the location of the switches.

The switches are set to their defaults during manufacture. However, the switch settings may get inadvertently changed during handling.


Note If the switches are not set to their default settings, there may be momentary packet drops during OIR of the board.
