Quick question, when adding a  line card to the 6513, the card will be auto recognized by the switch for a base  config and can be provisioned for use at a later point when needed, correct?   There is nothing as far as provisioning that needs to be done to coincide with  installing the actually module in the chassis.  Thanks…

I would insert the card during a maintenance window.

And then I would shut down every interface to make sure no one plugs anything in and causes an outage.

Then do a 'sh module' and make sure the IOS recognizes the card and that it boots up properly. look for the "OK" in the status.

You are also correct, you dont need to provision anything beore inserting it.

You may be right. I have seen cases where its not. Either way, its no big deal. Just shut them down if theyre not already.
