Answered Question

All,

When should you upgrade rommon? I've never done an upgrade, and I've only upgraded the IOS.

Thanks,

John

I have this problem too.

Put simply, when you need to. If you don't need to upgrade the ROMMON to run the software you want to run then leave well alone :-)

The new IOS, 12.4(50)SE series and later, will upgrade the switch's ROMmon to 12.2(44)SE5 (so you don't have a choice whether you want to upgrade the ROMmon or not).

Depending on the routers, I would take advantage of upgrading 1800, 2800, 3800 because there is one major feature I want: USB Boot

Otherwise, I'd follow the old adage: If it ain't broke, doooooooooooooooooooon't fix it.

Hope this helps.
