We are close to receiving our new 6513E chassis which I will be running Sup720 cards in. This will be replacing our existing
6509 Sup2 setup in production.
My questions are
What current IOS version should I run on the Sup720 ? I would like to support SSH. The chassis will be populated with a couple of
6724 SFP cards, 2 6704 10 gig cards and a few 6748 line cards.
Is there a good intitial config guide ?
Any help would be appreciated.
The IOS you should be using will depend on the features you are configiured on the box. If you are unsure on the feature support you can choose the advance enterprise service images such as the one below which is certified as safe harbor release by Cisco.
Regarding your query for IOS feature set, this is very well explained in below link(Cisco IOS Packaging)-
Also the below link(feature Navigator) may come in handy if you want to verify the list of features supported by an image-
