    Hi fellow guys,

    i just have 2 questions:

    1. Module Question

    What if i bought a WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE only but wanted to have an WS-X6K-S1A-MSFC2.
    Is there a way to screw the PFC and the MSFC2 from another board on that board
    and is there any chance that this "construction" would work ? ;-) Should i expect
    any identification problems regarding to some eeprom/rom content stating the board
    was initially an WS-X6K-S1A-MSFC2 ?
    Yes, i know but dont care this time about warranty, money is already lost.

    btw.: i found this nice table on the web (which i should have before i ordered that stuff)
    Base Supervisor model + PFC + MSFC = Orderable Supervisor Model
    WS-X6K-SUP1-2GE = WS-X6K-SUP1-2GE
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE = WS-X6K-S1A-MSFC2
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC = WS-X6K-SUP1A-PFC
    WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC2 = WS-X6K-S2-PFC2
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC + WS-F6K-MSFC = WS-X6K-SUP1A-MSFC
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC + WS-F6K-MSFC2 = WS-X6K-S1A-MSFC2
    WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC2 + WS-F6K-MSFC2 = WS-X6K-S2-MSFC2

    2. Software
    What would be a good SW/HW combination for an WS-X6K-SUP1A-MSFC/WS-X6K-S1A-MSFC2 ?
    Still latest CatOS and IOS (for the MSFC's) or is the native mode worth a try ?
    Is there some actual comparision of pro/cons for Hybrid vs. Native Mode ?

    Thanks you so much in advance guys/girls,

    Cheers Mike

    Base Supervisor model + PFC + MSFC = Orderable Supervisor Model
    WS-X6K-SUP1-2GE = WS-X6K-SUP1-2GE
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE = WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC = WS-X6K-SUP1A-PFC
    WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC2 = WS-X6K-S2-PFC2
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC + WS-F6K-MSFC = WS-X6K-SUP1A-MSFC
    WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC + WS-F6K-MSFC2 = WS-X6K-S1A-MSFC2
    WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE + WS-F6K-PFC2 + WS-F6K-MSFC2 = WS-X6K-S2-MSFC2
