Re: CORE 6500 from VSS to non-VSS?

Hello Ibrahim,

The procedure is quite straight-forward => Command switch convert mode stand-alone in enable mode on the VSS system. The active chassis will be then converted to standalone. Then the same on the backup chassis (which is now in active VSS mode) to reach a two standalone systems configuration.   

=================

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SX/configuration/guide/vss.html#wp1056162

When you convert the VSS active chassis to  standalone mode, the VSS active chassis removes the provisioning and  configuration information related to VSL links and the peer chassis  modules, saves the configuration file, and performs a reload. The  chassis comes up in standalone mode with only the provisioning and  configuration data relevant to the standalone system. 

Do the same with standby chassis.

=================

Of course, if in production environment the strategy of the migration has to be carefully defined before => saving of the configurations, new addressing, Etherchannels, STP, FHRP, routing and so on .....  

Best regards.
