Cisco Sup720 Migrate to Sup2T

Hi,
As I have an existing 6500 which needs to migrate the existing Sup720 to a new sup2t supverisor engine on the same chassis running VSS; I was wondering if there may be any suggested/recommended approach besides backing up the Sup720 configuration and rebuilding it on the Sup2T from scratch.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

I tftp the config of the 720B to my PC. Then tftp it to the Sup2T. I had some static routes and the SUP 2T added some new ones that causes a few errors. But if you understand your config very well. Then, tftp the config to the Sup 2 T should not be a problem. I did the stand alone migration though, not VSS.

Can you just backup the config to your 2T with the compact flash card? I believe the 2T has a compact flash type II drive.

Hi,
Apreciate for the information. As I am new to migration using the config to copy to the flash card; will the sup2t be able to migrate the config on the existing Sup720 to the new sup2T? I would understand that the sup2T would run a different version than  the sup720 (the configuration may be different on sup720 and sup2T such as the default class-maps and copp/etc...) and the port configuration on the supervisor engine is different on the sup2t.

Appreciate in advance for the reply :)

Hi,
Thank you for the weblink on the cases scenarios. That has really been very helpful (I was intending to open a TAC case and have them on standby, but now I can do it myself instead as I know the expected behavior).

Appreciate for the great help :)

I strongly advise that you still open a TAC case and have them on the standby. With those high end switches, you always schedule a Cisco TAC engineer when you do an upgrade because you never know. Weird things can pop up, especially the 2T. Thx
