Replacing WS-X6724-SFP 24 port Module

I have a Cisco 6509 switch that our WS-X6724-SFP 24 port Gigabit Ethernet Module failed during a scheduled power outage. I have received the replacement part and had a question on the hot swap. Once I replace the module, do I need to copy the port configs over? I have been reading and see conflicting answers on the subject where some say I do and others say I don't

Thanks

When I've replaced a line module, it didn't require any reconfiguration. However, even if it does, just paste the config in after installing the card.

When you remove the module, if you look at the running config for that module it will be gone. After you replace the module it will reappear. The answer is you do not need to copy the port configs over.

However, I would do the following;

1) wr mem  - to make sure everything is written to nvram
2) copy config to laptop or other repository
3) swap module - do not re-terminate cables until verified
4) run full diags on module
5) verify status, config, an normal operations
6) re-terminate cables
