Load IOS code on redundant SUP

Unanswered Question

Hello,


I have a 6509 at a remote site with dual SUP32's running IOS code 12.2(18)SXF4; I would like to upgrade the code. In order to power cycle the switch, I need to have the new code on both the primary and the redundant sup. Loading the new code on the primary sup is easy.

My question is, how could I load the new code on the redundant sup?


Thanks


Jeremy

copy bootflash://sup-remote didn't help.

Is that a way to copy a code from a primary sup to a standby sup?

Hi Jeremy, in my case I have the IOS in the sup-bootflash. The primary card is in slot 5, and secondary in slot 6. You can execute the following steps:


(Primary Card)

SW#show sup-bootflash:

-#- --length-- -----date/time------ path

1 74637284 Aug 12 2008 14:08:24 s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH3.bin

(Secondary Card)

SW#show slavesup-bootflash:

-#- --length-- -----date/time------ path

1 74573284 Aug 06 2008 12:38:12 s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin

To copy from Primary Card to Secondary

copy sup-bootflash:s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH3.bin slavesup-bootflash


To copy from Secondary Card to Primary

copy slavesup-bootflash:s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin sup-bootflash

Carlos,


Thanks for your help. Couple of questions for you.

1- Did you have to enable versioning?

2- After loading the new code on both sup's, how did you proceed? I guess setting the boot statement.

boot system flash sup-bootdisk:s3223-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF4.bin

What after that?


Thanks,


Jeremy

Jeremy,


After copying the IOS and updating your boot strings you would then reboot the switch. You could also reboot the supervisors individually.



HTH,

Mark
