Can you stage a 6509 on a 6513 chassis without issue?
I'm looking to upgrade a 6509 from a sup 2 to a sup 720-3b. I have a spare / test 6513 chassis available in my lab. My question is can I use a 6513 to build the configurations ahead of time for a 6509 (obviously only using the first 9 slots).
I know that there are some architectural differences, but I imagine that the configurations would look similar whether staged on a 6509 or 6513. Can this be done without issue?

Your main problem will be with the supervisor blades - on a 6509 they must be in slots 5 and 6, on the 6513 they must be in slots 7 and 8. This will be a problem if you're using any of the ports on the sups for anything. Other that that, as long as you avoid using slots 10 through 13, the configurations are compatible.
