Installing Second Sup720

All,

This is phenomenally amazing to me, but I've been searching for several hours trying to find documentation on the proper procedure for installing a second sup720 into our 6509-E chassis for sup redundancy. I have found documents that tout how 'cool' and 'awesome' NSF/SSO, and all that is, but haven't found any docs on installing a second sup720 into a chassis that is currently in production and is only running one sup720.

In all the years that this chassis has been out, there must me a documented procedure out here to explain this.

I have been through the following pages, and have found nothing to this effect:

In all that documentation, it's amazing to me that I've been unable to find a procedure for installing a second sup720.

Does anyone know of where this documentation may be?

I appreciate any assistance.

Thank you,

James

Re: Installing Second Sup720

James,

The second sup needs to have the same IOS as the first one.  It also needs to have the same hardware component as the first sup.  After that you basically put the sup in the chassis and configure it for SSO. If for example you have a 6509 module 5 will be the primary and 6 the stand-by.

With Sup-2T, you don't even need to enter the SSO command.

Have a look at this doc:
