This is not totally tru. I have 2 Cisco 7604 with two SUP720-3B each one. In both case, alway the Primary (active) supervisor was the card in slot 2. I don't know wy, but the only mode that can I change this situation was interchanged the supervisor position (From 2 to 1 and 1 to 2). Then, the primary was always the supervisor on slot 1.

In some case, if the SUP are ordered from two different time, there is a chance the newer one will be the active when it boots up, and this is not configurable.
