Re: CAT9K - IOS-XE - Denali / Fuji / Everest

Hi there,

The names are the codewords used to cover two minor release trains, ie:

16.2 – 16.3  is Denali

16.6 – 16.7 is Everest

16.8 – 16.9 is Fuji

 

Obviously each minor release will come with new features and new caveats, so check the release notes against your environment to determine which release is right for you.

 

In absence of a recommended release for a platform it is usually a safe bet to pick the one with the most umber of revisions. For the Cat9300 that would be 16.6.4 .

 

Cheers,

Seb.

Re: CAT9K - IOS-XE - Denali / Fuji / Everest

Hello,

 

What Seb said is correct. They are just names of the different versions just like android has a code name for each release. However, the mapping is like this:

 

16.1 – 16.3 is Denali

16.4 – 16.6 is Everest

16.7 – 16.9 is Fuji

 

Hope that helps!

Gibraltar covers 16.10 - 16.11 https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/ios-nx-os-software/ios-xe-16/tsd-products-support-series-home.html I've just read a release that the next release name is Polaris, starting at 16.12 which bucks the trend of three minor versions per codename. cheers, Seb.

And 17.1.X is called Amsterdam.

Interesting, so 16.x is based on mountains, I wonder what the naming convention for 17.x is. Cities with canals?... an odd choice for sure!
