How to know the feature set and the last ios for a switch

The customer has an old catalyst 5500, and wishes to do an upgrade to the last version, but I was not able to find what is the feature set that he can download the ios. The show version displays the following:

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software

IOS (tm) C5RSM Software (C5RSM-DSV-M), Version 12.0(28b), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Re: How to know the feature set and the last ios for a switch

Based on C5RSM-DSV-M, that feature set is Desktop/IBM

The latest version (12.2.46) does require more DRAM (64/16) vs your current IOS (32/16)





Re: How to know the feature set and the last ios for a switch

Everything depends on how much dram you have on both the RSM card also the supervisor card. If you have enough dram on the supervisor the last version is 6.4.23a (64 meg dram). For the RSM if you have enough dram then 12.2.46a was the last code (64 meg dram).
