Hi, very welcome.

On Catalyst switches all the modules are hot swappable so you can put it in and take it out with the switch up and running with no problem.

Regarding the IOS upgrade, you see sometimes sup-bootdisk and other times bootflash, this is because the switch has different memories. If you run a "show file system"you will see all the available memories on the switch.

In order to perform the IOS upgrade, first we need to identify on which memory we have the IOS image, if you do a "dir all" look at the memories and find on which one you have the IOS image. All the memories are pretty much the same.

if you see the IOS, for example, on bootflash, then we need to perform the next commands:

(config)#no boot system    ***delete the current boot statement***

(config)#boot system bootflash:[ios image name]    ***specifiy the IOS the switch should boot from now. is importan to have no spaces between the ":" and the IOS image name***

(config)#do wr    ***save the configuration***

(config)#do reload    ***reload the switch for the new IOS image to booot***

Please let me know if that helps

Hi,

What supervisor model do you have in the chassis?

Because of the ios image name you have a sup720. You have to upgrade the switch because the current doesnt support the line card. Upgrade to 12.2(33)SXH2 or newer and the line card will work fine. The one you say (SXH8) is ok.

Hi Diego ,

Thank you very match for your HELP

just another  thing please , in configuration of my switch i have :

boot system flash bootflash:s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-18.SXF9.bin

boot system disk0:s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-18.SXF9.bin

boot system flash sup-bootflash:

but in the "show version"   i have

System image file is "disk0:s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-18.SXF9.bin"

So ,  to do it  :

(config)#no boot system  disk0:s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-18.SXF9.bin

(config)#boot system disk0:s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH8

(config)#do wr   

(config)#do reload   

i can use TFTP instead of FTP ??

Thank you Diego for your help and time

Hi Mohamed,

You are right you can use either a TFTP or FTP to copy the image that is not a problem.

Instead of using the (config)#no boot system disk0:s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-18.SXF9.bin, we can use only (config)#no boot system to clear all the boot statements on the switch and to avoid any problem.

The other commands you are going to use are perfect.
