Catalyst 6500 Upgrade Path

I am currently planning an OS upgrade project for a series of Catalyst 6500 LAN switches from hybrid mode to native IOS.

I have one minor concern.

I will have to upgrade 16 Cat6500's to IOS. The core switches will follow later.

Are there any things to worry about when running the access switches in native mode whilst the core remains in hybrid for the interim period?

There is no L3 switching at the access layer so I think I should OK -but if anyone has any experience or tips I'd be grateful.

Cheers

Hi friend,

As per my experience, you should be fine. i havenot come across as such any inter-operability issue with 6500 working in hybrid and native OS. You should be absolutely fine, if you have the correct configuration.

HTH, please rate if it does.
