In preparation for the future, I've been upgrading our switches. Inline with modern network design, I want to prepare ourselves for layer 3 to the edge. On my 3750s and 3650s should I install the advipservices, ipservices or would ipbase image be sufficient?
I was just trying to get the advipservices image off the download software section on the Cisco site and couldn't find it. Is it still there? I thought I could get some comparisons.
Besides the 3750 you also mention 3650, but I guess you mean a 3560-switch?
Basicly from 12.2(50)SE only ipservices and ipbase exist as feature set for 3560 and 3750-switches.
Prior releases like 12.2(46) and below still had an advipservices-feature set,
however if you check in the feature navigator tool (www.cisco.com/go/fn)
and compare a 12.2(46)SE advipservices-image with the 12.2(55)SE image ipservices,
then you will see that the 12.2(55)SE ipservices is doing everything the 12.2(46)SE was doing.
(back in 46SE, there was some extra IPv6 routing not available in standard ipservices image,
but since 12.2(50)SE this also is available in ipservices)
So in your case I would recommend 12.2(55)SE ipservices.
However I still encourage to do the exercise yourself in the feature navigator tool,
so you can see the difference yourself in supported features between and IPbase and IPservices image on the 3560 and 3750switch
using latest 12.2(55)SE.
