currenly running a C6509E, with a WS-SUP720-3B running IOS level S72033-adventerprisek9_wan-MZ.122-22.SXH3. I want to install a WS-X6748-GE-TX blade and would like NOT to have to upgrade IOS at this time. Future migrations are planned. Can this be done?
Solved! Go to Solution.
For this module you need minimum 12.2(17a)SX.
This module is supported only on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 running Cisco Catalyst OS Version 8.1.2 or Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.2(17a)SX (available in the next few months) and future software

My typo - sorry. I do have 12.2(33)SXH3, not 12.2(22) that I type in error. So it looks good to start at least. I am trying to limit the number of concurrent changes.
One more thing, is your Rommon version up to date?
From the same link I provided earlier:
Use with Release 12.2(33)SXH or later and a DFC requires DFC ROMMON version 12.2(18r)S1 or later. To display the switching module ROMMON version, enter the
remote command module

command. To upgrade the switching module ROMMON, see this document:
