doubt abt the EMI and SMI images on 3560 switches

hi all i have a silly doubt. if i buy a 3560 with the SMI image loaded in it. and then i install a EMI image in it then will it support the EMI images. i mean my main doubt is is it just abt the images or do we need a license on the switch for running a EMI image in it.

regards

sebastan

Yes you need a license to load a EMI image on a SMI switch. Now if your question is can you copy the files over and get it to load, yes that will work but cisco will still want you to go back and buy the license.

Hi,

If you buy a device with SMI, officialy you can't use EMI, since you don't have licence for EMI - but the HW support EMI.

Note: In this case you use the EMI image illegal, you have to purchase it.

bye
