6509-sup2 CatOS & MSFC2 IOS

i am bit confussed when i went to download the images for 6509 having sup2 & MSFC2, how will i know what image for 6509-sup2 running CatOS & MSFC2?

DRAM - 128MB


suggest me what CatOS & IOS should i go in for.


Re: 6509-sup2 CatOS & MSFC2 IOS

For CatOS 7.6.12 is GD Release. GD is General Deployed which means it's generally stable.

For MSFC IOS, they do not go GD or main release, so generally would mean take the latest release which is in 12.1 case, it's 12.1(26)E.

Hope that give you an idea.

Re: 6509-sup2 CatOS & MSFC2 IOS

When you are downloading the software from CCO.. at the "LAN Switching Software" page..

you get to choose "Download CatOS system software".. that link is where you go to download CatOS image..

the other link below that is the link to download the IOS image for MSFC.

For CatOS .. all SUP2 software have file names start with cat6000-sup2~

For MSFC2's IOS... follow the link "Download Cisco IOS for Router Cards" .. you will be asked what type of MSFC you have followed by the features you want..
