Cisco MDS Supervisor 1-to-2 Upgrade Process


Use this process to upgrade a Supervisor-1 card in a Cisco MDS chassis to Supervisor-2, in preference to Cisco's default upgrade procedure. There may be variations or problems in the upgrade process depending on initial firmware level of the switch, firmware level (or lack of firmware) on the new Supervisor-2 card, or specific configuration parameters in your environment. This document will guide you through upgrade of one or both Supervisor-2 cards in a given chassis.

The current release of this document is version 1.03 (2/04/2011).
