CSM 3.3.1 and 6500

Nikos Nicolaides


We are facing a problem with CSM 3.3.1 and 6500 switch with FWSM. We have 2x 6500 switches with 2 supervisors in each + 2 FWSM cards one in each chassis. The problem is that we have CSM 3.3.1 that manages the switch and FWSM. The problem is that when we try to delete a VLAN in 6500 we get a deployment failure because the switch outputs this message:

% Applying VLAN changes may take few minutes. Please wait..

We are using the following IOS version.
