This is not equivalent to >>> Cisco will not support multiple PA's within a VIP2-40. My memory is that Cisco does not support use of two 'high speed' PAs in a single VIP2/40. I also wonder how you got a POS and anything else in a VIP, as the POS is secured in and uses both holes. Was it ATM-Lite or something kinky? randy
