I have a cisco 7206 VXR with NPE-400 running c7200-ik9su2-mz.123-23.bin. I have an NPE-G1 card now that I would like to put in the router instead. Can I just swap the NPE-400 for the G1 card and expect it to work? I’m attaching the show ver on the NPE-400 system showing the bootloader, IOS, etc.

PCI bus mb0_mb1 (Slots 0, 1, 3 and 5) has a capacity of 600 bandwidth points.
Current configuration on bus mb0_mb1 has a total of 800 bandwidth points.
The set of PA-2FE, PA-POS-2OC3, and I/O-2FE qualify for "half
bandwidth points" consideration, when full bandwidth point counting
results in oversubscription, under the condition that only one of the
two ports is used. With this adjustment, current configuration on bus
mb0_mb1 has a total of 800 bandwidth points.
This configuration has oversubscripted the PCI bus and is not a
supported configuration.

PCI bus mb2 (Slots 2, 4, 6) has a capacity of 600 bandwidth points.
Current configuration on bus mb2 has a total of 380 bandwidth points
This configuration is within the PCI bus capacity and is supported.

Please refer to the following document "Cisco 7200 Series Port Adaptor
Hardware Configuration Guidelines" on Cisco.com <http://www.cisco.com>
for c7200 bandwidth points oversubscription and usage guidelines.
