This is my first post on the Support Community, so please allow me some room for not following etiquette. I have recently taken delivery of a replacement 4710 as one half of a pair. The unit that has been replaced was the primary in the pair. The current active 4710 was the secondary in the pair. I am looking for an installation guide that specifically deals with reconnecting peers, with reference to:
1) OS differences
2) Config sync
3) Failover timings
The working 4710 is on:- c4710ace-t1k9-mz.A4_1_1.bin

My concern is the mismatch in OS, yet the USB ports seem to be unsupported. I could configure the replacement with a lower priority, but would like to find some information on if this OS mismatch will cause issues and how best to copy from one device to another.
And yes, as you can probably gather, these devices are not my strongpoint, they were a legacy left by someone else with no documentation or explanations.
A penny dropped in the back of my mind, I brought up the management interface and set up a TFTP server locally, so, I have coped the image across. From here, I am going to reapply the config but lower the FT priority so that failover does not take place
