IOS Upgrade for Cisco 6509 switch

Unanswered Question
Sep 17th, 2008

Hi NetPro fellows -

I will be upgrading the IOS of two cisco 6509 switches from c6msfc2-jk2sv-mz.121-13.E14.bin to s222-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF13.bin . However the existing bootflash only has 32mb capacity and when i do a "show bootflash" i got two entries which i think is the IOS and bootloader image files.




1. Is an external flash be available for the 6509 switch to store the new IOS(s222-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF13.bin ) which is 64mb in size?

2. Do i need to also configure the bootloader image after the new IOS has been placed?

thanks for your reply.

have a nice day.

I have this problem too.

Regarding my second question, do i need to install a bootloader image with this IOS s222-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF13.bin ?

No you don't. I'm assuming your running in native mode ie. IOS on both MSFC and Supervisor.
