IOS Image Software - 2970 Switch

Answered Question
Jun 19th, 2007

We have a 2970 switch (WS-C2970G-24TS-E), using an old IOS image file, c2970-i6l2-mz.121.14-EA1a. I like to know which image should I move up to, ipbase or lanbase file? I couldn't find a table which tell me where to migrate file to. I tried to use software advisor or IOS upgrade planner, but not much help. I know the switch we have is on end of life list and didn't bother to check for new release. Appreciate your help.

I have this problem too.

Hello,

I am just wondering how did you find the IPBase image as the IP base image is for L3 switches and yours is L2 switch. You should go for the LAN Based image. I have checked cisco and the 2970 IOS is all LAN based.

Hope this helps,

Your switch is layer 2 only and the only options are if you get lan base or lan base with with crypto which supports ssh , no layer 3 . Latest version is 12.2.37 SE .

Thank you all. I will try to read the document in more detail. I know that if you use crypto type of file, it usually has k9 in the file name in the past. Not anymore. Thank again.
