6509 Supervisor Upgrade with FWSM

We are planning to upgrade the IOS on our two 6509E supervisors in the next few weeks. We currently run IOS 12.2(33) SXI1 and are upgrading to 12.2(33) SXJ3.

At the moment the two supervisors are in SSO mode and after reading many articles it says that when the images are different on the two supervisors they are in RPR mode. When you then reload the active supervisor it will reboot all the line cards.

So my questions...

1. Is above correct? Will my line card reload?

2. We also have a FWSM installed, When/If the line cards are rebooted does the FWSM also reboot?

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

John

Hi John,

When the Sups are in SSO mode and you issue the reload command, that will reboot the entire switch including line cards and service modules.  Make sure you are running the same exact image on the primary and stand-by switch.
