Nexus 7000 single supervisor replacement

      Does anyone have a good process for replacing a N7k single supervisor setup if say the supervisor died and had to be replaced. With N7k's and VDC's this becomes more problematic as the global  vdc and other vdc's use separate config files .  What is the easiest way to get everything back on to the new supervisor ?  I have searched all over and can't find a decent process on how this might be done . We do have the configs on a SCP server .  It's not as easy as the IOS boxes where you have a single config file to get back on .  thanks...

Hi Glen,

I think you could use the below as a useful guide.

You could copy the current configuration of all vdc to a usb drive and later restore them back to new sup.

 copy running-config usb1:configuration_file_name vdc-all

and later copy the config file back to running config on new sup. Kindly go through the above link to understand better.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks,

Madhu
