Re: catalyst express 500 series IOS update

Hello suman

you cannot download any IOS, without sufficient priviledge on your CCO ID. If you do not have any access, the only way is to get hold of a cisco partner or systems integrator, and get their help in downloading this with/without cost.. Once you have downloaded the software, u need to do the following, to upgrade the software:

Once the new Cisco IOS version is downloaded, perform these steps to update the switch:

Open up the switch management GUI.

Click on Software Upgrade.

On the Software Upgrade screen, click on Browse and select the tar file downloaded from the Cisco web site.

Click on Upgrade.

Note: Wait for the upgrade process to complete. Do not use or close the browser session with the device manager, and do not access the device manager from another browser session.

Hope this helps.. all the best..
