Cisco 2960 TC-S Lan Lite to Lan Base

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to know if is it possible to load lan base image on Cisco Switch 2960 TC-S.

This model (WS-C2960-48TC-S) come with lan lite image and it's the same (phisically) of the 2960 TC-L (lan base image).

If I try to upload the lan base image on flash of 2960 TC-S will works?? ..or the switch goes damaged?

Anyone do this before?

Thanks

Cisco 2960 TC-S Lan Lite to Lan Base

Hi,

  • No. Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Switches cannot be upgraded from LAN Lite to LAN Base and cannot be downgraded from LAN Base to LAN Lite
  • The feature set is bound to the hardware model. To get the features and capabilities of LAN Base, you must purchase a LAN Base switch
  • On the front of the switch, in the top right corner, the LAN Lite switches have “Catalyst 2960 -S Series SI.” The LAN Base switches have “Catalyst 2960 -S Series.”
  • The last letter in the product ID . If the last letter is “ -L,” it’s LAN Base. If it’s “ -S,” it’s LAN Lite.   

          For example: 

          WS-C2960S-48LPS-L is LAN  Base.

          WS-C2960S-48TS-S is LAN Lite.

Not possible.  The appliance will "refuse" to boot the LAN Base IOS.

You cannot perform a software upgrade from a LAN-Lite to LAN Base appliance.  You need to replace the entire unit.
