I don't see any URL on your response sir.

Guys time running out i need someone to help me with appropriate software to upgrade catalyst 4506 E chassis. I have TFTP server downloaded already just need the right image and step by step procedures. This to be done remotely please

 

Thank you.

I can see the chassis (Sup6) is on 15.1(1)SG and the ROMMON version is 12.2(44r)SG. 

What version are you planning to go to? 

This question is very important because, depending on the target version, the ROMMON version may need to be upgraded.

Upgrading the System Software

You must upgrade to at least ROMMON Release 12.2(44r)SG5 to run Cisco IOS Release 15.1(2)SG on the Supervisor Engine 6-E and Supervisor Engine 6L-E. 12.2(44r)SG9 is recommended.

ROMMON Release Notes for WS-X45-SUP6-E, WS-X45-SUP6-LE, WS-C4900M, WS-C4948E, and WS-C4948E-F

NOTE:  When in doubt (as to which ROMMON version to upgrade to), pick the latest one, 12.2(44r)SG10.

 

I just need the latest version if there's any.

Thank you

IMPORTANT:  Read the Release Notes properly. 

 

  1. Download the ROMMON file, 12.2(44r)SG10
  2. Download the latest Sup6 file, cat4500e-entservicesk9-tar.152-2.E8.tar
  3. Upload the ROMMON file to the supervisor card:  copy tftp://<TFTP IP ADDRESS>/cat4500-e-ios-promupgrade-122_44r_SG10  bootflash:cat4500-e-ios-promupgrade-122_44r_SG10 
  4. Unpack the IOS file:  archive tar /x tftp://<TFTP IP ADDRESS>/cat4500e-entservicesk9-tar.152-2.E8.tar bootflash:
  5. Verify the ROMMON MD5:  verify /md5 bootflash:cat4500-e-ios-promupgrade-122_44r_SG10  a0a78aec88a9dbe3df0de77dd74882e6 
  6. Verify the IOS file MD5:  verify /md bootflash:cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-2.E8.bin 819fd95cbfc665b662b93fccf19c5efe 
  7. Change the config-registry to 0x2102
  8. Remove the old boot variable string and put the new variable strings: 

 

conf t
 no boot system flash bootflash:<OLD IOS FILENAME>
 boot system flash bootflash:cat4500-e-ios-promupgrade-122_44r_SG10
boot system flash bootflash:cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-2.E8.bin end wr

9.  [OPTIONAL] Export the config to an external storage. 

10.  Reboot the stack. 

NOTE:  Because of the ROMMON upgrade, the reboot will take around 17 minutes. 

11.  After the chassis has returned, remove the ROMMON boot variable string from the config. 

conf t
 NO boot system flash bootflash:cat4500-e-ios-promupgrade-122_44r_SG10
end
wr

12.  DONE.
