WS-C3550-48-SMI 'upgrade' to EMI?

Answered Question
Apr 4th, 2008


Can I replace the IOS on a WS-C3550-48-SMI with one from a WS-C3550-48-EMI and then have an EMI switch rather than an SMI switch? Are there any drawbacks to doing this? Thanks.


I have this problem too.

There are no drawbacks to doing it and yes you can do it - so long as you have the right service contract with Cisco.

The image you want for EMI is IP Services (not IP Base).

See the Q/A here for SMI/EMI differences...
