4506 hot swap 100M card for Gig card

Hi all,

If you hot swap a 100M card with a Gig module in a live 4500 switch, what happens to the running-config?  Don't have the module versions to hand.

Thanks in advance,

Jason

As per the 4500 and 6500/7600 chassis, the box will stay up, the new card will boot up and function as expected but you will have to re-entere the config for all those ports (assuming you will be reconnecting everything to the same port numbers) as in the old config they were (if it was slot 2 for example);

interface FastEthernet 2/1

ip address x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

desc: link to the moon

interface FastEthernet 2/2

switch mode acccess

switchport access vlan 666

desc: link to hell

Now they will be;

interface GigabitEthernet 2/1

interface GigabitEthernet 2/1

HTH!

That's what I suspected, just needed a little bit of reassurance on it!

Cheers!
