We have acquired another firm and they had Cisco 6500 series Box
Its my first experience with 6500 Box, I have noticed to configure VLAN I have to connect to session 15 and to configure ethernet port I have connect to another session. One session is CAT OS and another session is IOS.
Is this normal.
I dont have any experience on CAT OS,
what steps are required to upgrade from CAT OS to IOS.
for many years the Hybrid mode was the only mode to use a C6500.
When Cisco bought the Catalyst company they had already developed their switch products with their own operating system and their own CLI the catos.
I had been using CatOS and hybrid switches for years and I had some difficulties in turning to Native IOS.
Shortly, the device was installed with CatOS previous network administrators didn't feel to upgrade it.
Hope to help
