Supervisor card switch off

Unanswered Question
Oct 4th, 2008

Hi All

I am working on a Cat 6509 that has 2 supervisor cards. I need to take them out to upgrade the DRAM.

Do I need to switch of the whole chassis before starting?

Also, please can you tell me in what order to start the work i.e do I upgrade the active card first and then the standby later.

Thanks for your help.

I have this problem too.

You won't need to power down the chassis to pull the supervisor out of the chassis. You should be able to pull them out individually and upgrade the memory. If you do have the appropriate downtime you can power down the switch and perform the upgrade if you would like.
