Hi, 

Please someone tell me how to upgrade catalyst 8500-12x in ios xe 17.6.3a.

I have earlier upgraded cat 9300-48T-4X in IOS-XE. I am listing down the steps, please correct me 

1) show version
2) dir usbflash1:
3) copy usbflash1:c8000aep-universalk9.17.06.03a.SPA.bin flash: ---ENTER
Destination filename [c8000aep-universalk9.17.06.03a.SPA.bin]? ---ENTER

Verify the MD5 checksum--verify /md5 flash:c8000aep-universalk9.17.06.03a.SPA.bin




4) dir flash:
5) Swicth(config)# boot system flash:packages.conf
show boot system
6) install add file flash:c8000aep-universalk9.17.06.03a.SPA.bin activate commit

after reload
install remove inactive

Should I follow the same procedure for Cat 8500-12x ????
