Cat OS help

Hi, I just purchased a Catalyst 2948G switch not realizing that it has CatOS on it. Which I have no clue how to use. Any tips on converting modern IOS 12 commands to CatOS?

Re: Cat OS help

Hello Chris,

CatOS is based on the use of two directives

set ...

clear

it can be used only for L2 services but once you know how to do tasks it is even easier to configure ports

set port enable 1/1      =      int fas 1/0 ;  no shut;

set port name 1/1  PC789   =    int fas1/0; desc PC789;

set vlan 50 name test50  == >    vlan 50; name test50   OR    in older IOS   vlan database; vlan 50; name test50; apply; exit;

set vlan 50 1/1   =   int f1/0  switchport; switchport access vlan 50

set trunk 1/2 on dot1q  =     int f1/1 ; switchport; switchport trunk enc dot1q; switchport mode trunk;

clear trunk 1/2 2-1000; set trunk 1/2 50;  = int f1/1; switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,50

set vlan 50 1/3-10, 2/2   =   without interface range would mean a lot of commands

sh port

sh trunk

allows to check settings

see this config guide from CatOS for C4000

Ah, I see. Those definitely will get the ball rolling for me. Thanks.

Any idea how to enable/disable debug messages?

Re: Cat OS help

Hello Chris,

as far as I know there are no debug options in CatOS

However, catOS tends to provide more log messages and you see them always (no need of terminal monitor)

so usually the trouble is to get rid of log messages on the session

Hope to help

In addition to Giuseppe's post have a look at the Field Manual pdf in this link, it covers CatOS and the equivalent IOS commands -

Ah, I see. Thanks

Quick question, is it possible at all to upgrade CatOS on the 2948G to a version of IOS 12?

Re: Cat OS help

Not possible. The only available download on Cisco.com is CatOS for the 2948G.

Re: Cat OS help

Oh ok. What is a supervisor card and how do I get another one? How do I find out what my supervisor card it?

Cisco Employee

Re: Cat OS help

Not possible for the 2948G. Supervisor card (SUP, a.k.a. the brain of the switch) is refering to the Catalyst 4xxx and 6xxx platform or Nexus 7xxx, where you can mix and match modules. The 29xx and 3xxx are the fix switch platform. Please refer to the below link for more info.
