Replacing Cisco 4506 with Cisco 4510R

Hi, all.

I am going to replace Cisco 4506 switch with Cisco 4510R and keep the same configuration.

All I need to do is backup the running config and restore to the new switch using TFTP or is there anything else involved?

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That's about it, but be aware that the port numbering will probably change. The SUP module goes into different slots on the 4510 and all the other module/port numbering will change.
