I would like to upgrade my current C9200L Switch stack from 16.09.03 to 16.09.05 version. When visiting software download page in Cisco, it mentions that the cat9k_lite_iosxe.16.09.05.SPA.bin, requires DRAM:2048 and Flash:4096. Although, when I issue the below commands to my switch stack:
C9200L_Stack#sh flash: | i bytes
1156882432 bytes available (700555264 bytes used)
C9200L_Stack#Sh version | i (ARM64)
cisco C9200L-48P-4X (ARM64) processor with 519464K/3071K bytes of memory.
From the above commands I understand that:
I have ~1.9GB Flash available from which ~1.1GB is Free
and I have approximately ~522MB of DRAM available.
but requirements from Cisco are higher: DRAM:2048 and Flash:4096
Please for your advice in order to proceed with the aforementioned software upgrade. Do I have insufficient space of Flash and DRAM to proceed with the above upgrade and how to solve this ?
what is the Model of device :
you can look the device come with memory :
here is the release notes :
My device model is C9200L-48P-4X. According to your 1st link this goes along with DRAM of 2GB & Flash of 4GB. However, I cannot verify it through the commands I mentioned
I see. Any specific command to verify it ? "dir system:" does not show the memory size for dram. I get "No space information available".
The only reason I insist is to verify that this upgrade can work in a production environment with no unexpected issues.
