Dear Sir,

i have cisco catalyst 4503 switch with SUPII+, and i want to upgrade its IOS to cat4000-i9s-mz.12.2-20.EWA2.bin, the required flash for this image is 32M.

when i do sh file system this output appear:

------------------ show file systems ------------------

File Systems:

- - opaque rw system:

- - opaque ro crashinfo:

524280 523424 flash rw cat4000_flash:

524280 518074 nvram rw nvram:

the Bootflash siza is 28M

and cat4000_flash is 5M

cat4000_flash is where the vlan.dat is store.

You can verify this by doing dir cat4000_flash

You will store the IOS image in bootflash or purchase a flash card and insert it in slot 0: for additional IOS storage.

Yes supII plus will support any images that cisco has out there . That image is really older you might want to check out the newer ones which is either 12.2.20 EWA9 or the newer 12.2.37 SG code.
