Using Cisco EnergyWise and Catalyst 6500 Switches


Catalyst 6500 switches support the Cisco EnergyWise features and functionality as previously described in this guide. This appendix describes any Catalyst 6500 switch-specific EnergyWise functionality.

Catalyst 6500 switches running Cisco EnergyWise Version 2.6 and later:

High availability

To perform an ISSU downgrade from a Cisco IOS release supporting Cisco EnergyWise Version 2.6 and later to an earlier software release that does not support EnergyWise, first disable EnergyWise on the switch.

To perform an ISSU downgrade from a Cisco IOS release supporting Cisco EnergyWise Version 2.6 and later to an earlier release that does not support EnergyWise, remove the snmp-server enable traps energywise global configuration command from the switch configuration.

Stateful switchover (SSO) mode

On a redundant chassis operating in SSO mode, the energywise neighbor hostname udp-port-number global configuration command does not work. Use the energywise neighbor ip-address udp-port-number global configuration command to specify the IP address of the host.

Catalyst 6500 switches do not support Cisco EnergyWise Version 1. For more information, see the "CLI Compatibility" section.
