Hi Ehsan,

The Sup2 can have 16/24/64MB external flash, please do check the following documents for more details:



Flash Cards for the Catalyst 6500/6000 Supervisor Engine 1, 1A and 2 have minimum ROMMON, software version, and other requirements. Refer to Catalyst 6000 Family Flash Card Install Note:



Mohammed Mahmoud.
