we have a 6509 with Supervisor2 and msfc2 (2 running in high availability mode) one of the msfc cards has failed and the replacement has an older version of code. because we cannot write any config to the new one (any vlan interfaces go down down due to the supervisor being automatically put into standby mode) we cannot make contact with any IP interfaces to write the code (taken from the existing MSFC) to the bootflash. which will then allow us to write the router configuration.
does anybody know a way to do this without taking down the entire network and removing the existing sup and configuring this one alone?
we see a copy to slaveflash command but are unsure where this slave memory is.
