Setting Up Supervisor Redundancy in a 6500

All,

I am configuring a Cat 6500 with 2 WS-SUP720-3B engines. How do I configure these two engines for redundany? Is there a configuration for this or do you just install them and the software automatically sets the priority. I am asking because I have never set up 2 engines before. Any help would be great.

Re: Setting Up Supervisor Redundancy in a 6500

Just install the two supervisors and then paste these commands below. This will enable stateful redundancy on the supervisors which is what is recommended.

redundancy

mode sso

main-cpu

auto-sync running-config

auto-sync standard

Please make sure that the supervisors have the same IOS version. And its a good idea to have the IOS versions loaded in disk0: and sup-bootflash: on both supervisor engines and have boot statements like this in the config:

boot system flash sup-bootflash:s72033-pk9sv-mz.122-18.SXD7.bin

boot system flash disk0:s72033-pk9sv-mz.122-18.SXD7.bin

Use "show redundancy" to verify. Output will be similar to this:

sh redundancy

Re: Setting Up Supervisor Redundancy in a 6500

I am trying to add a second sup to an online 6500 system. Assuming all the IOS versions etc. match. Can I just add the second sup and add the redundancy commands?

Will it come online as standby? Are there any steps I need to take to make sure it has a "copy" of the config? Will the process take the switch offline (I assume a reset will be necessary)?

Thanks in advance.

Also, this is a system running Sup1As and I would be adding a Sup1A. Do the commands remain the same?

Thanks
