I have Supervisor 5 on my 4510. I tried upgrading to the newest version and it wouldn't take the IOS. Could someone explain to me the difference in the 4000 and 4500 images? There are two choices when downloading the images.
I think it depens on the sup. This is what I get if i try to download software for 4500 series switches. If you look at the list Sup4 and 5s have "Cisco Catalyst 4000/4500 " before the sup, and Sup 6 E only has Catalyst 4500.
Cisco Network Modules
Cisco Catalyst 4000 Supervisor Engine I
Cisco Catalyst 4000 Supervisor Engine II
Cisco Catalyst 4000/4500 Supervisor Engine III
Cisco Catalyst 4000/4500 Supervisor Engine IV
Cisco Catalyst 4000/4500 Supervisor Engine V
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Access Gateway Module
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-TS
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine V-10GE
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor II-Plus-10GE
Yes, i noticed that as well. The newest releases are
The SG are for cat4500 and the EW are for the cat4000 IOSs. I don't get what the differences are. Can i upgrade the switch to a cat4500 IOS if i'm running a cat4000. I tried upgrading and it wouldn't take the image, invalid "must start with device name"
Ok. I think you are not trying to download ip base image. I skimmed through the document below, and I believe that you can use only ip base version of cat4500 IOS with sup V. For others, you need to have sup v-10G.
ok, so you're saying i should probably use the cat4000 if i want to use full featured routing protocols like EIGRP or OSPF? If i use the cat4500 then i'm limited to the IPBASE image because i have a standard supV? Thanks for the help.
Thats incorrect for a sup V they have enterprise versions. I think we are getting hung up on semantics. I believe they just changed the name . Up thru the EWA releases they were named cat4000 . When they went to the SG releases they changed it to 4500 when they went to code to support the -E chassis . The SG series will work fine on a sup V ,below is the latest version of enterprise for a Sup V. Besides any EWA release is End Of Life in November and any releases for the EWA train stop at that point and you have to go to the SG train .
