Cisco 3750Upgrade from SMI to EMI image procedure

Hi All,

I have a cisco "WS-C3750G-24TS-S"  switch with an SMI image. I want to use as an L3 device to support full routing features. According to the cisco documentation I need to purchase an upgrade kit (part code : CD-3750G-EMI=). I wanted to know the following.

1)What is included in this kit?

2)What is the procedure for the upgrade?

3)What cisco ships a SMI image is there a license that is used that will support only the SMI images?

4)Once the switch is upgraded will the show inventory output start showing "WS-C3750G-24TS-E" instead of "WS-C3750G-24TS-E" ?

Thanks in advance !!!

Regards

Umesh Shetty

1)What is included in this kit?

Right to use.

2)What is the procedure for the upgrade?

Once your license has been OK-ed by Cisco, download the IP Services IOS and upgrade the IOS of the switch.

4)Once the switch is upgraded will the show inventory output start showing "WS-C3750G-24TS-E" instead of "WS-C3750G-24TS-E" ?

Nope.  It'll still show as "-S".

Does this also mean that if a do not buy the license but upgrade the device I have to an EMI image the upgrade will happen without any issues,

If you run into trouble and you'll need TAC Support, they'll not like it.

but the device will now remain unlicensed or illegal.

Correct.

% Unrecognized command

That output is normal.  3750/3750G does not have a license file.

1) I wanted to know how the license is upgraded on this device ?

Your license will be stored in Cisco's database.

2) I have refeeed the below metioned url which states the upgrade license procedure does this not apply to this model that I am using ?

No it won't.

So this means that on a device like 3750/3750G the license is stored in Cisco's database hence if i wish to I can upgrade to an EMI image without purchasing any license but thta would mean i would not get any help from Cisco because I am not entitled to use this image.

I am not even sure if you CAN download the IP Services image if you did not pay for the license.  This is because your Cisco Service Contract is tied to your CCO account.  If you don't have any IP Services license, your CCO account will not let you download the file.

But on devices which stores a license file if I try to upgrade the image to an enhanced verison will i get an error that would say that I do not have the license to run this image ?

You will not be allowed to download.  Give it a try.

The 3750G just needs the IP Service image on it, and it will run it.

Licensing for that series is just to make it "legal".  Only the later 3750 series, like the 3750X, enforce the license.

Cisco 3750Upgrade from SMI to EMI image procedure

Thanks Leo,

So what I understand from your answers is I purchase a license to use the EMI image from Cisco and register my device with Cisco as an EMI usable device. Does this also mean that if a do not buy the license but upgrade the device I have to an EMI image the upgrade will happen without any issues, but the device will now remain unlicensed or illegal. And any further issues with the device or an RMA that may be needed incase of a failure will not get honoured because I am using more that what I have subscribed for.

Please let me know if the understanding is right, correct me if I am wrong.

Re: Cisco 3750Upgrade from SMI to EMI image procedure

Hi Leo,

I have other devices in the contract for which I have paid for an IP services license so it allows me to download the IP Services image. But before I try to load that image on the SMI platform I want to be doubly sure rather than banging my head later trying to receover the device if it does not work.
