Hi spremkumar

Thanks a lot for your immediate reply the problem with me is I am having Cisco 6500 Series Switch with Supervisor Engine 720 which does not support xmodem tranfer. I did tried xmodem it failed. Need to find other solution. I have one more switch running fine can I install this supervisor engine in the exsisting switch and recover the IOS

Hi Yasir

You can do that we did try the same kinda swap in some of our Cisco 7606 boxes quite some time back..
