- Cisco Employee,
I am trying to find a way to show the current IOS version running in a 4500X. The show version indicates software running default and other commands like show bootvar only indicates what I have configured. Is there other way? Is it related to configuration register?
I don't understand what you are trying to do.
The "sh hardware" (old command) or the "sh version" will tell you the IOS version of the switch. The version is found in the first line output. If you want to be pedantic, the same set of command(s) will show you the bootvariable statement as well as the location where the IOS file is located.
