Migrating from 4006 (Sup II) to 4506 (Sup IV)

It appears that the only tools for moving Hybrid code (CatOS) to Native (IOS) are available for the 6500. Is this correct?

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_tech_note09186a008070f124.shtml

In this scenario the supervisor and L3 card are being traded in (replaced with Sup IV) and the other modules will be re-used.

Current 4006 Modules:

Hardware Version: 6.2 Model: WS-C4006

Mod Port Model Serial # Versions

--- ---- ------------------ -------------------- ---------------------------------

1 2 WS-X4013 Hw : 6.2

Re: Migrating from 4006 (Sup II) to 4506 (Sup IV)

Hi Friend,

Yes you are right that currently only CAT6K sup engines can be converted from CATOS to Native IOS and sup engine 1 & 2 on Cat4k switches cannot be convrted and can only run CATOS.

SUP engine 2+,3,4, & 5 only run IOS so you have to replace you existing sup engine and 4232 L3 blade and as you mentioned you will be putting sup 4 you can use your remaining line cards.

Re: Migrating from 4006 (Sup II) to 4506 (Sup IV)

Hi,

Yes, the Catalyst 4500/4000 Series Supervisor II-Plus, III, IV and V runs Cisco IOS? software only, and does not run Catalyst OS software. While Supervisor 1 and 2 runs only CatOS and can't be converted, and you can reuse the other modules.

HTH, please rate if it does help,

Re: Migrating from 4006 (Sup II) to 4506 (Sup IV)

I have swapped out the SUP 2 for the SUP IV in 4 CAT 4000 switches. The conversion tool does work but will not convert every command, you will have to manually change some of the config files.

Also check the release notes for the supported HW rev?s of the 4000 modules ( 4306, 4148) ? older modules may not work with current IOS release.

Sup 1 and 2 in cat 4006 are catos only and cannot be converted .

Re: Migrating from 4006 (Sup II) to 4506 (Sup IV)

I think that what he is asking is not whether a Sup2 can run IOS, but whether there is a tool to assist in the conversion from CatOS to IOS on an existing switch with the replacement of the Sup.

He is taking an existing 4006 with Sup2, removing the Sup2 and L3 card, and replacing it all with a Sup4. Is there a tool to convert all the configuration information of Sup2 CatOS and L3 card IOS into a unified IOS config that can be used on the Sup4?

It would be nice if a tool like this existed, but I have not seen one before. Manually converting it is a bit of a pain. Cisco must have some code to do this since they can automate it on the 6500. It is probably just not tested for the 4500.

Hi,

Yes there is a conversion tool "Cisco EDI CatOS to IOS Configuration Conversion Tool":

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_tech_note09186a0080816fbc.shtml

P.S: I've used it for 6500, but i think that it might also work for the 4000, please do check it out.
