Our 6513 switch is running version Version 12.2(18)SXD7b. Its running a SUP720. The shipping papers say we got IOS IP W/SSH/3DES Lan Only. Been out to the download site. We have had the switch for just under a year. Seems like the software is still current. There appear to be newer version but not for the feature load we are running above. Am I reading this wrong?
If I follow download links using switches and go to the 6513 the version is listed as 12.2(33)SXH1 but have demo as part of the file name. If I got to the 6509 switch it asked what sup I'm running and a break down of software features. Wonder why the 6513 link is not like the 6509. Should I just follow the 6509 link? Doing so seems to show my software version is still current.
Why do you want to upgrade the software. Is there any problem with the current software? Any bug/ particular problem? Are you upgrading new hardware on the switch that needs new software ? As dar as it is running fine, you shouldnt look for the IOS upgrade.
If you want to upgrade for some reason, then just follow the 6509 download and upgrade the Sup720 to IOS that you want.
Mostly for my information. Just wondered why the links for the 6509 and 6513 go different ways. I have yet to do an upgrade on our 6513. Upgrading many other Cisco products over the years. Since our 6513 isn't in production as yet I thought if there was an upgrade it might be a good idea to try and upgrade before we go production just so I have the experience for later. I understand about don't fix what isn't broken.
So if I travel the 6509 path. Select my 720 supervisor. On the next page I pick my feature set. Doing so shows me our switch as shipped last year still has the most recent code for that feature set. Just wanted to make sure I was reading the download site correctly for our switch.
