4507 Dual Sup Upgrade

I have done many upgrades on 6500 and 7600 with dual sups.

Last night i did an upgrade for 4507 with Sup II plus.

I upgraded then reloaded the standby first, but when i switch the redundancy to upgraded standby the whole thing went down for about 2 minutes.

Have i done something wrong?

is 4507 with dual sups not capable of doing in-service upgrades?

any help or suggestions much approciated.

thanks

Re: 4507 Dual Sup Upgrade

Check to see how redundancy is set ,if its RPR mode then it will take considreably longer than SSO mode .  Either the config was never set as SSO  or you have mismatched  IOS versions in the supervisors which will only run in RPR if the versions do not match . If in RPR mode all ports will reset which causes spanning tree and other functions to runn which is probably what you saw and the corrresponding interuption . SSO is the way to  go !!!
