Active and standby supervisors are of different earl
One of our switches have become obsolete and is only connecting two trunks together. One 1G trunk with a fast ethernet trunk.
To remove the switch we want to connect the 1 Gig trunk to a 5500 cat. Now in that cat we do not have a 1g uplink port. So what we tried is to insert a second supervisor in the 5500 with 1gig ports on board.
But the 2nd supervisor went into error state with met message:
%SYS-3-SUP_ASEARLDIFF:Active and standby supervisors are of different earl types
They are identical supervisors see outpur of sho ver below.
The only diffence is that the current superviro do not have the addidional 1Gig uplinks. Ofcourse we can put the uplinkports on the active supervisor but that will need us to take the switch down.
Is there an other solution/trick to do this?

Re: Active and standby supervisors are of different earl
This message indicates that the redundant supervisor engines have incompatible forwarding engine types. With this condition, the synchronization of Flash and NVRAM configuration is disabled.
Can you paste the complete "sh mod" output from the switch.
Catalyst 5500 series switches support supervisor engine redundancy with Supervisor Engine II, II G, III, or III G. You must install the redundant supervisor engines in slots 1 and 2 of the chassis.
Redundant supervisor engines must be of the same type. Supervisor Engine III modules are interchangeable in a redundant configuration if the feature card is the same on both supervisor engines (both EARL1+, both NFFC, or both NFFC II).
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
