"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.

I don't have a problem with it. I just need to get another a second supervisor and I just want to make sure that I buy the correct one. I can see the part number via show module and I am not sure if there is anything I need to take into consideration before I purchase the second supervisor. Thanks
"show inventory" would also be helpful.

Then contact your CISCO dealer so they Will order the correct part.

You can use  "show module" to list all modules on it , it would list SUP engines and whether hard ware parts pass or fail.
