I'm looking to upgrade a 6509 from a sup 2 to a sup 720-3b. I have a spare / test 6513 chassis available in my lab. My question is can I use a 6513 to build the configurations ahead of time for a 6509 (obviously only using the first 9 slots).
I know that there are some architectural differences, but I imagine that the configurations would look similar whether staged on a 6509 or 6513. Can this be done without issue?
