Scroll down to the Supervisor Engine Notes section and locate your supervisor model.

If you have compact flash card, back up the configs and IOS to the flash card. Swap out the Supervisor, use the IOS and config on the compact flash card to boot the new Supervisor.

Re: How to replace failed supervisor module IV on Cisco WS-C4506

To be clear on my side - as i have never replaced a failed sup module before - i would take the following steps - i do have about 122 mb free on slot0:

copy bootflash: slot0:

cat4000-i5s-mz.122-25.EWA5.bin

copy bootflash: slot0:

running-config

Then - I should be able to hotswap the failed sup module with the new one.

copy slot0: bootflash:

cat4000-i5s-mz.122-25.EWA5.bin

copy slot0: bootflash:

running-config

Verify

Please advice - thanks

Hi Friend,

AFAIK to copy image from bootflash to slot0 and vice versa is ok but to copy config you muct run the command

copy config slot0:

and for putting it back

copy slot0: config
