Hi ,

How can we know that 6500 and 7600 series switch and router are running in native mode or in hybrid mode.

Thank you

Hello Ambivert,

in Hybrid mode the switching processor and the routing processor (the MSFC) are two separate entities each with its own shell.

to check if you are in hybrid mode you can verify if:

all available commands start with set

there is no configuration mode  ( no need to use configuration terminal)

you can connect to the MSFC using

session 15

or

session 16.

the MSFC appears as a CDP neighbor in show cdp neig on switching supervisor on an internal port channel

in native mode you have an IOS based single shell for both SP and RP,

the command show ip int brief

is supported

to configure the device you need to use config t

commands have hierarchy and are IOS based ( global configuration versus interface configuration mode and so on)

C7600 are all native IOS as far as I know but hardware is similar to C6500.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
