4500 supervisor swap

Hi all, We have two 4500 chassis running as a pair. One of the switches needs the supervisor blade swapping out. I have received the spare and am ready to perform the swapout. Is it as easy as making a backup of the startup configuration and copying this back onto the new supervisor. I did think about having both running at once and failing over to the new one but not sure if this is a great idea as I'm not certain on the config to archive this, Any help or guidance would be more than welcome . Thanks.

Re: 4500 supervisor swap

The recommended way is to read the installation guide of your supervisor module. This will ensure that you wont miss anything.
