I have been handed a ticket to work an RMA for a failed line card in a Cat6509-E. Not ever having worked with these devices before I had a few questions:
The config that applies to the ports on the failed line card, do those persist via the Supervisory modules?? Meaning, if we simply rip/replace with the RMA'd linecard the ports will reconfigure themselves as they were?
Are any commands required after swapping out the failed line card to bring the new card online to the system / restore configuration to those ports? If so, what are those?
Any other best practices when swapping line cards on the 6509-E you may have please feel free to share via comments. Finally - if the community feels this should be broken into separate Q's let me know and I will take care of it.
