Hi Shashi,

If you see a prompt like "Console> (enable)" then it is running CATOS and if you see a regular enable prompt "Switch# " then it is IOS.

From user mode, you can determine the IOS version by running the "show ver" command.

If you're still not sure from the output of the command, post the output here and we'll let you know!

Kind regards
