Catalyst 6513 - redundant SuperVisor was not synced after insertion

Hello everybody,

the SuperVisor engine in slot 1 of a Catalyst 6513 needed to be replaced because a

hardware defect. The SuperVisor engine in slot 2 is active and running CatOS 8.5. The new

SuperVisor engine for slot 1 came with CatOS 6.3 and was not syncronized auromatically

after insertion. When the customer enter the command "Show boot" he get the output:

AG-A6513-51> (enable) sh boot

BOOT variable = bootflash:cat6000-sup2k8.8-5-5.bin,1;bootflash:cat6000-sup2k8.7-6-2.bin,1;

CONFIG_FILE variable =

Configuration register is 0x2102

ignore-config: disabled

auto-config: non-recurring, overwrite, sync disabled

ROMMON console baud: 9600

boot: image specified by the boot system commands

Image auto sync is disabled                   <--- !!!

Image auto sync timer is 120 seconds

I don't find a command to enable 'Image auto sync' or a command to initiate the

syncronization manually.

Can some help?

Every hint is welcome.

Thanks a lot!

Bye

Rene

for supervisor redundancy to work both supervisor modules must be the same hardware version and also running the same software version.

If you have a software mismatch you will need to upgrade your new supervisor to match the same level of the existing supervisor.
