CatOS config to IOS

Hello,

I have a new 6513 with 2 sup32's with IOS. This chassis will replace a working 6513 with 2 sup2's with CatOS.

My question is this:

I need to pull the running config from the CatOS chassis and make it work on the IOS chassis. i can do this manually but was wondering if there are any trade secrets on doing this.

thanks in advance!

CatOS config to IOS

Hi Anthony,

There is E-DI software that has capability to translate CatOS commands to IOS:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/enhanced_device_interface/2.2/user/guide/comtran.html#wp1043426

Cisco E-DI provides a comprehensive management interface to configure  Cisco devices. Cisco E-DI interfaces with network devices through the  command line interface (CLI) or through an Eclipse-based Graphical User  Interface (GUI).

A Cisco CatOS to Cisco IOS conversion tool is provided in Cisco E-DI  2.2.1 to help Cisco Catalyst 6500 users migrate their CatOS devices to  Cisco IOS. The tool is available in the CLI console and the GUI

You can download it here:

Kind Regards,
Ivan

Re: CatOS config to IOS

Another question on this conversion.

I want to make sure – 100% assurance that VTP client mode will be assigned to this new chassis. I heard that VTP mismatches could cause some chassis to take over as the VTP Server.

Thanks again.

Re: CatOS config to IOS

Hi Anthony,

The tool will give you the translated config to apply on a switch. Before letting the switch join the VTP domain,

verify that its VTP configuration revision number  is lower than the configuration revision number of the other switches  in the VTP domain. Switches in a VTP domain always use the VLAN  configuration of the switch with the highest VTP configuration revision  number. If you add a switch that has a revision number higher than the  revision number in the VTP domain, it can erase all VLAN information  from the VTP server and VTP domain.

To check revision use "show vtp status", to reset it  to 0 - change the vtp mode to transparent and then back to client (whichever it was originally). After that joining VTP domain will be safe as it will have the lowest VTP revision number.

Kind Regards,
Ivan
