VSS IOS Upgrade

I am setting up 2x6509s to run VSS. The IOS coming with the boxes are 12.2(33).SXI3. With this IOS I am running into the bug CSCtc41114 (SSH connections fail to the switch). I am looking into upgrading the IOS to 12.2(33).SXI4a. I notices there are 2 different IOS, Modular and non Modular. Can any one tell me what is the different between both and which one I should use. Is it hardware dependant?

Re: VSS IOS Upgrade

Joe

Modular IOS breaks down the IOS into separate modules to all intents which allows you to upgrade parts of it without having to upgrade the whole image. However Cisco have announced that they are discontinuing modular IOS so i wouldn't go with that if i was you. Stick with the single IOS image for your VSS upgrade.

Re: VSS IOS Upgrade

Thanks for you respond. That works out even better. The non modular IOS is smaller size than the modular.
