My company has 2 catalyst 6509 and was configured as VSS. And then there is a spare unit of Catalyst 6509 with old configuration. I have cross check the version of 48-port inline cards, 8-port 10Gig module and 720 supervisor engine.
Since my company does not want to buy Cisco smartnet, instead, they perfer to make use the spare unit for any replacement in case of any hardware failure.
I have questions of replacing modules as I am the only one to take care of this.
When 48-port inline card failed, let say, 2 out 3, do I just pull out the failed inline card and replace the one from spare unit? According to Cisco, it's suggested to erase configuration of spare part first and then plug into the production unit. Is this step necessary? after inserted the spare incline card, do I need to configure it or it will be automatically get configuration from supervisor engine?
I would be appreciated if someone could share their experience that would really help.
