I have a 6509 with redundant Sup2/MFSC2 cards. I recently upgraded the MFSC2 IOS from 12.1 to 12.2(18), by removing the SUP2/MFSC2 card from the second slot, just as a CYA. This was successful and I am running on this version now. However, when I tried to get a new IOS image on the 2nd MFSC2 flash, I rebooted it before I got the new image loaded in flash. So my MFSC2 in slot 15 is inactive, the Sup2 (running Cat OS ver 8.4.3) is working and is in standby mode.
I would like a 'sanity check' on my method to recover the 2nd MSFC2 module.
I have 2 ATA PCMCIA Flash cards and have copied the IOS image from BootFlash to Disk0: on the card in slot 1. Then I will move the ATA PCMCIA card to the 2nd slot and remove the SUP2/MFCS2 card from the first slot, so I can boot up on the 2nd SUP card, then Switch Console to the MFSC card, then see if I can "boot system flash sup-slot0:<image name>", then when that works, I should be able to TFTP the image to bootflash, configure the redundancy, then insert the SUP2/MSFC2 card in slot 1.
Sanity check please?
