When you was unable to config SSH what wasnt you allwed to do?
Please don't forget to rate any posts that have been helpful.
You did configure all of this requirements:
Configure the hostname command.
Configure the DNS domain.
Generate the SSH key to be used.
Enable SSH transport support for the virtual type terminal (vtys).
Hostname and dns are configured just like other switchs.
but any ssh command won't work. i try crypto key generate rsa or set crypto key generate rsa .

You can't even type "crypto"? No option after that?
Could you post option after "crypto" command if you even can put that one on platform?
Can you do this and post the commands and any output
This might help us to understand your issue. Certainly that code that you show us should support crypto commands.
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
% Unrecognized command
Can you maybe enter something like "ip ssh..."? Could you try that?
SSH should definitelly work on your platform...
When you upgraded did you leave the original IOS in flash as well ?
If so then it may be your configuration register ie.
0x2101 means load the first image found in flash ie. ignore the boot variable
0x2102 means load the image specified in the boot variable
do a "sh ver" to see which image you are running. If it is the none crypto image then change your confiiguration register to 0x2102 and reload.
Then try ssh again.
