Supervisor engines

WS-C6503-E front
WS-C6503-E rear

Both, the Cisco WS-C6503 and the Cisco WS-C6503-E switch have three horizontal slots being numbered from 1 (top) to 3 (bottom) and measure 4 rack units (4 RU). While slot 1 is reserved for the supervisor engine, slot 2 can contain an optional redundant supervisor engine. !!! Note: When installing a redundant supervisor engine, both supervisor engines must be identical. !!! Note: The GBIC uplink ports are fully functional on the redundant supervisor engine in stand by. If a redundant supervisor engine is not required, slot two can be equipped with any supported cisco7600 series / catalyst 6500 series module.
