When you download a new image to the active supervisor engine the newly downloaded image is not copied to the standby supervisor engine automatically.

To initiate the synchronization function between the active and standby supervisor engines, you must configure this newly downloaded image as the boot image on the active supervisor engine.

Synchronization occurs when you change the boot variable. To run the new image, you must reset the system.
