Cisco Field Notice: FN - 62954 - Catalyst 6000/6500 May Crash...

How can I tell if I'm running CatOS of my 6500 router?

Hi

You do not have CatOS on your switch. You are running in "native mode" ie. IOS is used to confgiure both the switch and the MSFC.

If you were running in "hybrid mode" you would have CatOS on the switch and IOS onthe router. So when you login to the switch you use CatOS commands and to get to the router from the switch you have to type something like

sess 15

So in native mode to setup vlan and it's routed interface

vlan 100 name v100

interface vlan 100

ip address 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.0

In hybrid mode - on the switch

set vlan 100 name v100

On the MSFC

interface vlan 100

ip address 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.0

Hi

Do you have to login separateley to get to the router or not. If you do you are probably running CatOS on the switch and IOS on the MSFC.

If you could post the output of

1) sh ver

2) sh mod

Thanks Jon, that really helped me figure this router out a little more. What would be the purpose of running the CatOS or in hybrid mode? Thanks again.

Glad to have helped and appreciate the rating.

Running CatOS on the switch and IOS on the MSFC used to be the only way to do it. Now you can use IOS for both and this seems to be Cisco's policy for the future.

CatOS does however still have a place. Although most of the features are the same between CatOS and IOS they each have things specific to them so if you need a feature that only CatOS supports.

We still use CatOS in our data centres on our 6500 access-layer switches as we have no MSFC in these 6500's.

Jon
