4503 sup II plus TS multicast

Hi I want to know if a 4503 with Sup II plus TS can be used for the following:

* multicast routing

* pim-sm

* msdp

* ipv6 multicast routing

The platform can not use different IOS features than IP BASE so I can not change it to advanced ip services.

What can I do? Or definetely I can not use this swith for the task?

Thank you very much


Re: 4503 sup II plus TS multicast

Sup2+ is a Layer-2 only supervisor, so it wont do any of those things.

For all of those features, you need a Sup5/Sup6 for the 4500.

Hi, I have another question, Supervisor IV does not work for this? Also, with IP BASE SSH IOS can I supprt these features or I need the ENTERPRISE SERVICES IOS?

Hi Friend,

Yes enterprise services ios will support your requirement.

Also in future you can use Feature Navigator tool. Click on search by Platform and then select you platform from drop down menu and then the release which you are looking and it will tell you the features supported in that release and festure set.
