can you turn a 6500 sup1a-pfc into a sup1a-2ge

  1. The sup1a-pfc is just a sup1a-2ge with a pfc daughter board factory
    installed (I believe). Is it possible to remove the PFC daughter board to
    turn the sup1a-pfc back into a sup1a-2ge?

    Has anyone done this?

    Are there any risks?

    The data sheets say that the sup1a-2ge is NOT field upgradable so I'm
    concerned there may be some reason this can't be done (ie if you can't field
    install maybe you can't field un-install).

    The reason I want to do this is to have redundant sup1a-2ge's and I already
    have the sup1a-pfc so it would be cheaper to remove the PFC. Alternatively,
    can the sup1a-pfc be a redundant supervisor for the sup1a-2ge with the PFC
    still installed?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks, Darren
