Hi All,


Iam planning to upgrade IOS on dual SupV 4510R to most recent 12.2.50-SG to support ip tracking feature for Internet reachability.

Current IOS: cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA4

The switch has BGP/OSPF/EIGRP protocols with SSO redundancy. In the 12.2.50 train, the naming convention for IOS is little different. Will


ENTERPRISE SERVICES W/O CRYPTO

cat4500-entservices-mz.122-50.SG.bin

OR

IP BASE W/O CRYPTO

cat4500-ipbase-mz.122-50.SG.bin


is recomended. My choice is 1st one, but would like to get openions from gurus. Also, upgrading IOS does not need SUP firmware upgrade. is that correct.?


Thank you in advance

MS

You should use Feature Navigator to choose which IOS feature set you need. The IP Base will not have EIGRP/BGP/OSPF support - for that you need Enterprise Services -

No, you should not have to upgrade the firmware.

Not sure ipbase would cover the advanced routing protocols , you would need enterprise services.

Thank you both. I will go with enterprise version. Also, for IOS upgrade with dual sups, Iam refering to the link


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/20ew/configuration/guide/RPR.html#wp1104060


I need to run both the below commands (to upload IOS to Active & stdby sups)


Switch# copy source_device:source_filename

bootflash:target_filename


and


Switch# copy source_device:source_filename

slavebootflash:target_filename


I do not have to kill the redundancy to upload the IOS. Please clarify.


Thank you

>>>> Simply uploading an IOS to the bootflash of the standby will not kiil the redundancy.


I hope that answers your question.
