Hi Ali,

Do you know the main release you want to upgrade so that I can update you with the full name or you want to upgrade to the latest code which can be supported on your supervisor and you want us to update you with the full name?

Hi Ali,

You can use Feature Navigator to select the feature set which you want.

http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/jsp/index.jsp

Once you open this link, click on serach by platform and then select cat4500 sup 4 form the drop down and then you can select the major release and which feature set you want. All features supported in that particular release will be listed.

Hi Ali,

The code what you are running currently is very old code which goes in 12.1 train. Also the feature set which you are running currently is BASIC L3.

Ali,

SSO is supported in Release 12.2(20)EWA and later releases.

Any current IOS from cisco.com for the 4500, supports SSO.

I recommend downloading cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA11.bin

Ali,

cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA11.bin is more stable. You've not purchased a k9 feature set you legally, you aren't supposed to download such code.

BTW, cat4500-ipbasek9-mz.122-40.SG.bin requires a bigger flash, can you post a show version from your current switch ?

Hi Ali,

I believe I posted you the link yesterday but anyways I will recommend you to please read the link posted by Edison very carefully before you start your upgrade and if you have any doubt please come back.

I have experienced many times missing one step can take your sups in rommon and then you have to follow recovery procedures.

Re: Upgrade IOS on the Switch

Hi Ali,

Hey Ali yes I do remember.What I mean was that the link Edison posted clearly described the steps but still while upgrading I have seen people do not follow the steps and then find sups in rommon.

Just make sure you copt the image to active sup and then to standby sup and make sure config register value is set correctly and be very carefull in setting the boot path an file name in boot path. I have seen people wometime put wrong image name while seting bootpath and then reload the sup and finds sup in rommon sometime.

So carefully set the boot path and thn reload the standby sup first and then forcely switchover to the standby and active will reload and come up with new image.

It is not very tough just need to be carefull and follow the setps in provided link.
