Unable to enable Netflow on Cat 4503-E (Sup7-e)


I am somewhat new to IOS XE, I am working with a Catalyst 4503-E with a Sup7-E. I'm trying to enable Netflow, and I have read the following guides:

Catalyst 4500 Series Switch SW Configuration Guide, Release IOS ...

I have also enabled Netflow in IOS 12.1/12.2 and figured the process was similar (It seems to be). CEF is enabled, and I have all the pre-reqs according to the document above, however, the flow commands don't exist, they simply say "command unrecognized". Am I missing some configuration step? I have included my sh version below.

sh version (edited):

Unable to enable Netflow on Cat 4503-E (Sup7-e)

Well I think I found what I needed. We are running a LAN-Base License. The netflow commands are only supported on an IP-Base License. Let me know if I'm wrong.


Re: Unable to enable Netflow on Cat 4503-E (Sup7-e)

  Yup think you have answered your own question .  You will notice it is running a universal image so probably everything is there you just have to buy the license key activation  for the feature you are looking for .   All the ISR's are now doing this  and suspect  the rest  of the cisco line will follow suit in the future , myself I   find it a pain in the you know what !  :-)
