Here are some more details. I will scrap the Sup720 upgrade, I just deal with my Sup2 issue for now.
I'm running IOS 12.2(18)SXD7b, bootstrap ROM is 12.1(4r)E. My Sup2 has been upgraded with MSFC2 and PFC2, max memory, 1Gb
Slot 1 Sup2 has been running non-stop for 11 months. Last night it failed, and the Sup2 in Slot 2 took over. I have console system with buffer, so when I try to console to the bad Sup2 I see the following repeating:
Unexpected exception, CPU signal 10, PC = 0x0

Not sure if this is hardware problem or just a software crash.
I guess my main question is, if I get an exact replacement Sup2, what is the best procedure for replacement with minimal downtime. Both Sup2's have the flash PCMCIA cards with my running config. So I assume I can take the flash card out of the bad Sup, insert it into the replacement, remove the Sup2 from the chassis, insert the replacement, then issue the command "hw-module module 1 reset", is that correct?
Also, my redundancy config is:
redundancy mode sso main-cpu auto-sync running-config
So if I were to run "hw-module module 1 reset" right now, would that reset slot 1 Sup2 and make it active or just reset it so I can do some debugging on it?
