Hello, Please see Cisco documentation: Upgrading Software Images on Catalyst 4000/4500 Series Switches

hth.

Edited: Please be aware that several recent releases of the 4500 code ignores the startup config and goes to ROMMON once you have upgraded, fix this by sorting the configreg.

Its just like the regular IOS

Its just like the regular IOS upgrade.

run tftp server in your machine with IOS in a folder and mapped to it.

If you have that switch in live network.... then just try the regular commands

copy tftp: flash:

ip address < machine ?

ios name

ios name

 

then boot parameters

save and check sh bootvar

if reqd change the conf register value

 

reload... once done...

Hello Karthik,It's not quite

Hello Karthik,

It's not quite like regular IOS upgrade - it actually depends. Its more like the 6500 upgrades. Here we are dealing with a SUP7, so I think it will be bootflash: not flash:

yeah... it can be bootflash..

yeah... it can be bootflash... or disk or sup-bootflash whichever is available flash system in the switch..... i was just mentioning about a generic way.....

 

Regards

Karthik
