Re: 4500X IPBase vs. Enterprise Services

Hi,

The  IP Base image does not support enhanced routing features such as  NSF/SSO, BGP, EIGRP, EIGRPv6, OSPF, OSPFv3, IS-IS, Internetwork Packet  Exchange (IPX), AppleTalk, VRF-lite, and Policy-Based Routing (PBR). The  IP Base image supports EIGRP-Stub for limited routing.

Cisco IOS XE Software Enterprise Services: Upgradable with a Software Activation License (SAL); supports full Layer 3 protocols and advanced features such as complete routing scalability, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Virtual Routing and Forwarding, Policy-Based Routing, and so on.

The IP Base image supports

The IP Base image supports Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) for Routed Access, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) "limited" Stub Routing, Nonstop Forwarding/Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO), and RIPv1/v2. The IP Base image does not support enhanced routing features such as BGP, Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX), AppleTalk, Virtual Routing Forwarding (VRF-lite), and policy-based routing (PBR).

Starting with Cisco IOS Release (3.3.0SG or 15.1(1)SG, support for IP SLAs and NSF have been extended from Enterprise Services to IP Base.

 

So the first response was a tad short of correct.  http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/release/note/OL_27989-01.html  

 

Who knows maybe something changed?
