3550 SMI to EMI

Hi all,

"On a 3550 switch what image do i need to upgrade a SMI switch to an EMI? Is it as simple as loading it onto a TFTP server and pushing the image across (obviously if there's enough memory) or do i have to squeeze out the flash, etc, etc. What is the image for the EMI - is it any of the 12.2 advanced ipservices? Are these the EMI images?

Thanks in advance.

Re: 3550 SMI to EMI

From 3550 upgrade documentation

"Note: All Catalyst 3550 Gigabit Ethernet switches ship with an EMI installation. Catalyst 3550 Fast Ethernet switches ship with either an SMI or EMI installation. You can order the Enhanced Multilayer Software Image Upgrade kit (CD-3550-EMI=) in order to upgrade any Catalyst 3550 Fast Ethernet switch from the SMI to the EMI. However, unless you purchased your 3550 with an EMI image preinstallation, you must purchase the upgrade kit before you download the EMI image"
