4506 Power Supply Upgrade

Unanswered Question

I have a 4506 switch with dual 1300W power supplies running in redundant mode. I am planning to upgrade to 2800W power supplies. If possible I would like to do this without powering down the switch. I'm a little concerned because the switch won't be in redundant mode once the first PS is swapped, due to the fact that they are mismatched.

Should I swap PS1 first or PS2? Any other ideas?

I don't think it matters which power supply you swap first. Just be sure you give enough time inbetween swaps that the power supplies come online fully -- green lights on the supervisor too.

I've performed a similar procedure, except to move the power supplies to different UPS's. It worked like a champ.
