I have an 12.2T train on my Cisco7500 as running IOS
My boot image is an 11 S train.

there are relations between the boot image and the IOS image.
Do I plan a boot-image upgrade ?
Thanks to all
You should always upgrade your rsp boot images when you upgrade IOS. It's recommended by cisco.
Cisco says "If the boot image and Cisco IOS? Software image do not match on the Cisco 7500 series router, some Versatile Interface Processors (VIPs) can be disabled"
I have deployed arround 30 7507 routers, I always put same boot and IOS image.
Hope this helps.
