CSM config-sync in bridge mode?

We are planning to upgrade our CSM from 4.1.6 to 4.2.6 and wanted to be able to utilize the config-sync capabilites in the new code. First, is config-sync supported in bridge mode and has anyone had much success or problems? We weren't able to find documentation on this? Please help!

Re: CSM config-sync in bridge mode?

config-sync works with bridge mode and routing mode.

You might want to go to 4.2.7 due to this ddts :

Also, make sure your IOS version is at the right level due to this

Re: CSM config-sync in bridge mode?

Sounds good, Thx Giles! In addition we would also like a solid CSM image overall. We have always tried to go with safeharbor and saw 4.2.6 was in there. In your expert opinion, out of all the 4.2.x images which has been the most stable? We have 12.2(18)SXF7 MSFC3...Is there a site we can check to see compatibility w/ CSM/IOS???
