How to Upgrade Hardware from M1/8G to M2/8G2 on NS-5200/5400 NSRP cluster



Article ID: KB9392 KB Last Updated: 11 Aug 2010Version: 3.0
Upgrading hardware from M1/8G to M2/8G2 module

When upgrading hardware on an NSRP cluster from M1/8G to M2/8G2 on NS-5000, you cannot use the NSRP failover upgrade process.  This is a hardware swap and requires completely powering down both devices in the cluster.

After powering down both devices in the NSRP cluster, replace the M1 with M2 card and 8G with 8G2 card.  After the modules are replaced, power up the devices.

Reminder: You cannot mix dissimilar hardware in an NSRP cluster.  Mixed hardware is not supported.  The NSRP cluster must have the same hardware.
