I have a WS-C3750X-12S-S (IP Services) that I THINK I'd like to downgrade to LAN Base so I can stack it with a WS-C3750X-48T-L that is already LAN Base...
Can I do this? Any reasons I shouldn't? Small environment, isn't much routing at all going on here...Thanks!
That is because it is not an image it is a license.
However you will loose more than just routing abilities.
so if i where you i would go the other way.
I would buy a license upgrade to upgrade the Lan base to ip base instead.
otherwise you will loose alot of functionality that you might want/need such as eem, powerstacking and so on.
to buy a license to upgrade contact your local cisco rep.
to change to a license from ip base to Lan base contact cisco licensing
gmcvb: How did you resolve your dilemma? When you said, "I don't see an image for it", are you referring to how, when you go to cisco's website to download a newer flash, like 150(9)SE2, the only option is IPBASE? There is the Universal - they put it there to tease you because you can't download unless you have a credential - why do they put it there if you can't download it - oh well. Did you ever find a way to downgrade IPBASE to LANBASE and bump the flash up to 150(9)SE2? I know this post is over 4 years old and if I had posted it I would have forgotten about it by now. But any help would be most excellent and I would be extremely grateful.
I don't think you can actually. I ran into the same problem and Cisco TAC told me that you couldn't do that with the 12S-S or 24S-S model.
If you purchased an IPBASE license, but wants a LANBASE license please try the "license boot level lanbase" command to downgrade to LAN Base. Note that IOS 15 has the RTU with the license that allows downgrading.
I tried that too, and it worked, but after reloading the switch, when I ran "show version", now it says, License Type: Default. No valid license found. Will it run like that and work? I mean, I am telnetted into it right now, so it must be working. So I just wondered if the same thing happened to you and if you were able to safely ignore the "no valid license" issue.
I also have problems adding a switch to the stack due to licensing mismatch.
The switch that I can’t add to the stack has an ipbase license and is running the following Images:
Switch Ports Model SW Version SW Image
------ ----- ----- ---------- ----------
* 5 18 WS-C3750X-12S 15.0(2)SE11 C3750E-IPBASEK9-M
If I run license boot level lanbase I get the following error
*Jan 2 02:16:04.992: %IOS_LICENSE_IMAGE_APPLICATION-6-LICENSE_LEVEL: Module name = c3750x Next reboot level = lanbase and License = No valid license found
As I’m trying to load a lower level license should I get this warning?
How can I overcome this issue?
