how to upgrade cat 6500

Unanswered Question
Apr 14th, 2009

Hi all, if I want to upgrade the IOS on my cat 6500, do I just do it like normal switch, copy tftp flash ?

also, would this apply to both CPU's? or would I need to upgrade each independently?

also when I save config on the active CPU, does this automatically apply to the standby cpu ?

I have this problem too.

Oh yeah - and yes configs are synchronised between the sups.

You can run commands on the secondary sup with

remote command standby-rp


remote login standby-rp

and check running/startup config, bootvar, config-register etc.
