4500 + SUP 7 LE IOS Upgrade failure

Hi ,

We were unable to upgrade the IOS of 4500 R+E switch with SUP 7 L-E. 

Trying to upgrade from 3.5.3  to 3.6.4 . Initially tried to upgrade the secondary supervisor. But it couldn't boot from the new IOS. IOS upgrade struck with the below message.


******** The system will autoboot now ********


config-register = 0x2102
Autobooting using BOOT variable specified file.....

Current BOOT file is --- bootflash:cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.06.04.E.152-2.E4.bin

So you're trying to force the secondary supervisor card to boot a different IOS (to the primary supervisor card)?  

If the answer is yes, then I don't see what the problem is.  The behaviour is to be expected.  The primary and secondary must boot the same IOS or else the secondary will boot into ROMmon.

If this is the case, then how am I supposed to do seamless upgrades??

I wouldn't expect the SUPs to come up in SSO redundancy, but they should have  come up as RPR at the very least.

Rebooting the entire chassis to upgrade is ridiculous.
