We are currently running CatOS on our Catalyst 4003 but would like to convert to IOS so we can monitor ports using Cisco Network Assistant.
Can this be done? I've seen documentation for the 6500 but not the Catalyst 4000's.
CATOS to IOS conversion is not possible for 4k switch. SUPs like sup1,2 runs CATOS and sup2+ and above work on IOS but conversion from CATOS to Native IOS is not possible on 4k switch as it is done on cat6k switch.
If you have a cat4000 running CatOS that means you have a supI or SupII, these sups cannot be converted to IOS. The same is true if you would want to convert a SupII+ or above which runs IOS exclusively, they cannot be converted to CatOS. Cat4000 sups have entirely different hadrware architecture than Cat6K sups so they cannot be compared.
