Is this Catalyst 3550 image, EMI or SMI?

Hi All

I was wondering if someone could tell me if the following image is the EMI L3 image or the SMI image please?

The image is c3550-i5q3l2-mz.121-20.EA1a.bin

Best Regards,

Michael

Hi Jorge

Cheers, thanks for the confirmation. This is what I thought, but I just wanted to be sure as there is a 3550 on Ebay listed as an SMI but with the above mentioned IOS installed (according to the "show ver" output posted). The posting did not mention that the IOS had been upgraded to an EMI image, so I just wanted to check before I bid.

Again thanks for the swift response,

Best Regards & Best Wishes for 2008 and beyond,

Michael

Michael, you're welcome and thank you for rating..

3550 platforms that come with SMI image are upgradable to EMI but it would be preferable

to have EMI code pre-installed.

here are some of the most common Q&A on this product.

Hi Jorge

Thanks for the link. There is some useful information there.

The switch (if I am successful in the auction) is a SMI model that appears to have the EMI upgrade. As this is just for my home lab for my CCNP studies this will have to suffice, as it is coming out of my pocket and the 3550 EMI models are usually much more expensive than the upgraded SMI models.

Best Regards & Thanks again for the information,

Michael
