Answered Question
Sep 18th, 2007


We have 6509 Catalyst switch with MSFC card(SUP 32). Both are having different OS. One is running on CAT OS while MSFC is running on IOS. We want to upgrade CAT OS to native. Can someone help me on this. We have upgraded DRAM to 512 MB for this upgradation.

Thanks in Advance.
