Dear Freinds of Cisco family

Pls guide me step by step how to acheive this so that i do not run into any problem of blank config as i did not found any doc on this  .

Note i have preempt enabled in all my context and auto sync also enabled in all context

Pls guide me what all basic config i need to do whch will be sufficient for the unit to download full config from active secendary mate

Hi Shirshendu,

 Make sure you make a backup copy of all your ACE configuration for the all
the context before doing any replacement.  Also, make sure that the current
primary ACE module has all the updated configuration
 
- Here are some documentation on how to replace the ACE module in the
switch:
1. Preparing to install/remove module -

2. Remove the ACE module -

3. Install the new ACE module -

- Once the new ACE module is installed, setup the ACE according to the link
below and load the same software version as that of the primary ACE:

ace/v3.00_A1/configuration/administration/guide/basiccfg.html
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/
ace/v3.00_A1/configuration/administration/guide/upgrade.html
 
 
- Configure the redundancy on the new ACE and synchronize the configuration:
