TCL interpreter in Cisco Switches

Unanswered Question
Jun 12th, 2008


I have one 3550 switch and i upgraded from 12.1 to 12.2(44)SE . But "tclsh" command is not enabled on this version. As per Cisco, 12.2(25)S is enough to enable TCL interpreter. Please let me know if you guys have answers.

I have a WS-C2960-24TT-L with the IOS c2960-lanbasek9-mz.122-44.SE6.bin which does not accept TCL either! Is it because of IOS version?

It's because of the platform.  You need a Catalyst 3K series switch for many of the embedded automation features.

Interestingly I have a WS-C2960-24LC-S with c2960-lanlitek9-mz.122-50.SE4.bin which is running TCL!!! I don't get it...

Sorry, I forgot they enabled tclsh in 12.2(50) on the 2960s.  Embedded Event Manager, on the other hand, is still not present on the 2K series.
