MLX MR upgrade to MR2

Hi,


I need to swap the MR management module on my MLX's for MR2's.  I am running just a single MR on these MLX's.  Can someone explain the process to make this change?  I'd assume I need to get the new module up to the same version, but a doc I found said these shouldn't be run in the same chassis simultaneously.

 

Thanks!

Ideally take the MR2 in a different chassis as they can't co-exist in the same chassis.

Upgrade the MR2, put the config on it, shutdown the MLX, remove the MR and install the MR2.

The boot the chassis and you're up.

Re: MLX MR upgrade to MR2

Thanks Ronald, that's a good idea as I actually do have a spare chassis.

 

I did hear back from my SE, and there is a supported method listed in Appendix A of the upgrade guide.  Basically, it recommends backing up the config to a TFTP server, shutting down and replacing the cards, booting and upgrading the modules, and then pulling down the config again.
