We had two WS-SVC-WiSM-1-K9  WiSM modules in our 6509, our primary module failed and is operating off the secondary one. We purchased a brand new WS-SVC-WiSM-1-K9 and I'm wondering if I can just plug in the module and it will take the configuration from the 6509 core switch?

Any advise would be very helpful.
Thank you Experts!

No unfortunately it won't. You'll have to install the new module then restore the config to it. If you install in the same slot as the old module it'll see the WiSM straight away, then you can use the session slot command to config the controllers.

Thanks Craig. So I can install the new WiSM in the old slot, use the session slot command to config the old IP's of the failure WiSM 1 and 2, then use a browser to upload the backup .cfg files into the system?

I guess I'll go off this document: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/interfaces-modules/catalyst-6500-series-7600-series-wireless-services-module-wism/91473-wism-initial-setup.html

We had a vendor set this up so not entirely sure I want to attack this myself. I'm only a CCNA and would hate to bring the whole wireless down.. lol

Do you know if at any point the 6509 would require a reboot? Because then I definitely don't want to mess with it. A reload caused 3 of our modules to fail..

Thank you again!

The chassis won't need a reload.  The WiSM support hot-swap.  I would do it in a maintenance window though, just in case anything does go wrong.
