How can I check to find out if my Catalyst 3750 switch has the standard or Enhanced OS?

Re: OS type

Logon to the switch via telnet\ssh and enter the following command:

show version

Look for either:

c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-25.SEE

or

c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE

ipbase is standard, ipservices = enhanced. Forget abou the numbers (122-25.SEE) at the end. Thats the version of IOS the switch is using.

Re: OS type

Sorry I was looking at the 3750 switch again. I only see C3750-I9k91-mz

What is that?

Re: OS type

Do a SHOW HARDWARE command and about 3 to 4 lines from the bottom you will see the model number for your switch....Please rate....

Re: OS type

pciaccio - how does knowing the model number of your switch help you determine if its SMI or EMI?

varouj - as far as the first reply you recieved, that is correct way that i know of. SMI is ipbase, EMI is ipservice.

If you have SMI, you can upgrade to EMI, but it will cost you.

Re: OS type

Because it actually shows you if it is an EMI or SMI. At least for my switch it does...

Re: OS type

Re: OS type

What does it mean? I still can't tell if I have standard or advanced when mine shows "software Image C3750-I9K91-M"

Re: OS type

Your switch supports advanced IP routing. Read the attached PDF doc...It explains the IOS features. Yours is listed in the document....

Community Member

Re: OS type

it means you can use any of the popular routing protocols such as eigrp, igrp, ospf, etc. you're not limited to just RIP and static routes.

Community Member

Re: OS type

The IOS running on the switch is "standard image".

To make out if the IOS is standard or enhanced check the IOS image name on the "show version" output of the switch, in our case (c3750-i9k91-mz.122-25.SE.bin); if we have "i9" in the image name, that means it is standard image, and if we have "i5" in the image name that means it is enhanced image. Cisco has recently changed the naming convention of the IOS image names. In the latest images standard image (i9) is replaced with "ip base"; and enhanced image (i5) is replaced with "ip services".
