Switchstack 3750 vs IOS vesrions

Hi everyone!

We have several stack switches with different IOS on them (basically ipbase 12.2 IOS). It`s needed to move from telnet to SSH. So I should upgrade IOS from ipbase to ipbasek9.

I have found that all IOS since 12.2 ipbasek9 supports SSH. But not all supports Cisco Stackwise technology. For example:

current IOS file - c3750-ipservices-mz.122-25.SEB4.bin (w/o SSH)

latest IOS file - c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-55.SE9.bin (w/o Stackwise)

Preffered for us file - c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-50.SE5.bin (SSH + Stackwise). But it`s not the latest one.

Please assist is is true that the latest IOS version doesn`t support Stackwise technology for 3750 switches?

ALL IOS for the 3750 supports

ALL IOS for the 3750 supports Stackwise.  Period.  


I'd recommend you use 12.2(55)SE9 instead.  Your choice of IOS, 12.2(50)SE5, is a joke.

As Leo notes, all 3750s support stacking, physically.  However, at least with the 3750X, the LANBASE license has/had restricted stacking support.
