The Ten Gig module is not coming up when we install it in the 6500 chassis. When we execute the “show module” we get a status of “PwrDown”. The following messages are also displayed.
C6KENV-SP-2-DFCMISMATCHMINOR: Module 7 DFC installed is incompatible with system operating mode. Power denied.
Debugging options –
- If the PFC mode is 3C and if you are trying to insert module with DFC type 3B, you will get this error.
- Reboot the 6500 switch to solve this problem. But there might be a performance degradation as a result of this. Also please click here to read details about the compatibility issues between PFC/DFC & CFC cards.
