Ip Servce Image for 3560 switch that are used for L3/L2

If i use ip service image on 3560 switch that makes the switch to work for inter valn routing and switch purpose at distribution layer of the network, Is the number of Ip that i am going to use and the number of Vlan that can be created in the network is limited due to this ip Service image?

No, it doesnot depend on the IP services image. Ip services only provides the following capabilties:

Dynamic Routing Protocols:

-Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)

?Enhanced IGRP (EIGRP)

?Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGPv4)

Policy-based Routing (PBR)

?Allows superior control by enabling flow redirection regardless of the routing protocol configured

Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM)

?For IP multicast routing within a network that enables the network to receive the multicast feed requested and for switches not participating in the multicast to be pruned-support for PIM sparse mode (PIM-SM), PIM dense mode (PIM-DM), and PIM sparse-dense mode

Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP)

?Tunneling for interconnecting two multicast-enabled networks across non-multicast networks

Private VLAN (PVLAN)

?Provides the ability to restrict communications between hosts at layer 2 through the use of primary and secondary VLANs.

It actually depends on the IDB limit on the IOS.

HTH,Please rate if it does.
