No one is irresponsible for

No one is irresponsible for giving you a recommended IOS version based on the limited amount of information you've provided.  We don't know what line cards you've got, we don't know what your network is like, and we don't know how you've done your configuration.  


Your best method is pick an IOS which is suitable to your supervisor card, line cards and chassis and read the Release Notes.  TEST the IOS you've choosen before implementing this in your network.

    I don't think ospf was

    I don't think ospf was ever officially supported on a Sup2 plus supervisor.  I think you have one of the old versions where cisco did not pull out the commands but it was not supported .  It is possible if you go to something newer ospf may disappear so you might want to look for the K9 version of the IOS you are currently using .


  I would pick a  late

  I would pick a  late version 12.2  version .  The image must have a K9 in the imagename to support ssh.
