second CSS11506-SCM-2GE

I have two CSS11506s and they have two modules:

# sh chassis

Configuration for CSS11506-2AC H0:


SW Version: 08.10.2.05

Slot Number Module Name Status


1 CSS5-SCM-2GE primary

2 CSS5-SCM-2GE backup

3 CSS5-SSL-C-K9 primary

4 empty slot

5 empty slot

6 empty slot

7 CSS506-SM powered-on

8 CSS506-SM powered-on


Slot / Port Name Status


1/1 SCM-2GE online

1/2 SCM-2GE online



Could I get advice on the following:

1. since I have two CSS11506s configured active-backup failover, do I have to setup secondary boot on slot 1?


2. If not, can I use the slot1's 2 Gbit interface? if so, how can I do? (currnetly, using show interface, I can not see them)


I need a interface to setup active-active stateful failover, and I need a interface to do so, am I right? can I use one interface in slot1 to setup ASR?


3. if I have to setup secondary-boot to use slot1, what I need copy over? except image, startup configure, do I need copy over otherthings?


AND does that mean I can not use the two Gbit interfaces anymore?



Any comments will be appreciated


Thanks in advance

you can't use the ports of the backup SCM.

You can only use them as backup ports. That is, those ports will becomes active if the SCM becomes primary.


Here is how and what you can sync between primary and secondary


CSS11503-2(config-boot)# passive sync ?

Execute command

boot-config Synchronize boot configuration with primary

image Synchronize image with primary

startup-config Synchronize startup-config with primary

time Synchronize clock time with primary
