Description (partial)


Resource Manager Essentials Software Image Manager cannot deploy an image upgrade to a standby Supervisor module on a Catalyst 6500 switch.  The warning seen when trying to create the job is:

Warning - SWIM1177: Could not find Matching Standby flash partition for sup-bootdisk:IMAGE, hence cannot distribute the selected image to Standby supervisor.


This will occur if the standby Supervisor flash device name is longer than 16 characters.  In this case, the standby device would be "slavesup-bootdisk" which is 17 characters.
