I will be upgrading a 6509 (SUP1a/MSFC2) from 6.3.6 to 8.2.1 in order to support a new 10/100/1000 copper blade. I went through the dynamic configurator to get the proper code version. The configurtor also recommended 24Meg flash card so I have that as well.
I'm just pinging the board to see if anyone has any insights or hidden gotya's that I might expect to run into in this type of an upgrade. It should be pretty strait forward but I have had issues in the past on a 5500 upgrade. Went from 6.2.2 to 6.4.8 and after the upgrade the configration was blown away. This happened to two 5500's.
One other issue you may encounter is losing your WAN interfaces on your MSFC's. They will still be in the start-up conf, but not in the running. You can cut and paste them back in, or copy start run. Lots of issues with WCCP configs disappearing as well... hmmmmmm
