This may sound strange. But in a practical environment, if a CSS fails (assuming there's no spare or standby/redundant one), can one use a router to replace the CSS and simply copy over the CSS config (taking out the content networking part) in order to continue with the basic TCP/IP routing?
Isn't a CSS just a router plus layer-7 (fw) pathing? ;)
Re: Can a router replace (temporarily) a failed CSS?
Let me add to the other comments and state that the CSS does not run IOS at all and quite honestly acts as a L3 switch more then it does like a router. What I am getting at is that the VLANs on the CSS need to be bridged, so this is where things can get a bit tricky as far as copying config from CSS to router.
