LMS 4.1 WS-C3550-24PWR-SMI and WS-C3550-24DC-SMI


Ciscoworks LMS 4.1 recommended IOS c3550-IPBASEK9-mz.122-55.SE5.bin as an option for upgrading my WS-3550-24PWR-SMI switch. Before reloading (after upgrading) I noticed this IOS version is not on the compatible list for my switch. Can I rerun software distribution with the correct IOS for my hardware without corrupting the flash with Ciscoworks? On a previous occasion I tried this but the flash became unreadable.

WS-3550-24PWR-SMI (Current device loaded with IOS 122-55.SE5.bin)

WS-3550-24DC-SMI    (Only device listed as being compatible with this IOS)

***My switch is over 500 miles from where I'm currently located****

Thank You,
