I have a 6506 with a SUP1A-2GE, a PFC and an MSCF2.
The 6506 has 64MB RAM and the MFSC2 has 128MB ram and a 24MB flashcard.
The chassis also hold four WS-X6348-RJ-45/WS-F6K-VPWR modules.
My CatOS is 6.2.2
The IOS on the MFSC2 is 12.1(8a)E5.
The System Bootstrap is 12.1(4r)
The BOOTFLASH: 12.1(8a)EX
I'm considering an upgrade of the CatOS/IOS on the switch to either a newer version of the hybrid mode or moving to native IOS.
I've read through the documentation comparing the layer 2 operation of CatOS and IOS, as well as the documentation outlining the process:
I'm also aware that Cisco is phasing out support for CatOS.
My setup is not complex, I don't need layer 3 capabilities beyond what the MSFC2 utilizes, But I figure that if I'm going to bring the switch down to update the firmware, I might want to go ahead and make the transition to native IOS
So.... any thoughts ?
