This may be a trivial question but I want to make sure this will work before implementing. We have a 4503 with a SUP4 and we want to swap a line card (WS-X4306-GB) from that chassis to a 4507 with SUP2-Plus. My question is will this work without having to reload the switch/SUP? I'm thinking it will, but I wanted to ensure that this is indeed the case.
Also, has anyone done this kind of a swap before and ran into any issues?
Any help would be certainly appreciated.

Yes Syd. This will work and won't affect the supervisor card of either chassis.
Probably safer to think of this as "shouldn't" vs. "won't".
I.e., if possible do this during a maintenance window.
