CSS11050 - upgrading license - reboot process

I have a pair of CSS11050. One device is active, second device passive. Both are running 6.10 Build 405. I have the Enhanced Security feature set license file from Cisco for each device. My original thoughts on the upgrade license process is as follows:

install license on passive device

reboot

install license on active device

reboot

When I reboot the active device, will it automatically failover to the passive device? Or is there a manual command I have to type in first? I know these are old devices and EOL.

Just curious if anyone else has experience with this model.

Re: CSS11050 - upgrading license - reboot process

After rebooting the active, the standby needs to first detect that it is down before it takes over.

I would suggest to force failover and then reboot.

You could simply increase the priority of the standby assuming you have configured preempt.

There is also a command 'redundancy force-master'.

Your plan sounds good.
