I'm working on a network upgrade project and currently have a pair of 6509's at the core. To successfully perform the planned upgrades I require e-series models. The problem is that I'm not sure if the current switches are e-series or not. Is there a simple way to determine the difference?
You should be able to get this from "sh ver" eg. extracts from sh ver on some of our switches.
