From 4507 blades to 9300-9200L stack

Level 1
Level 1

Hi, CCNA Junior here, two years experience. We're only two person in the enterprise for the network administration.

4507 informations:

  • Cisco IOS Software, IOS-XE Software, Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch Software (cat4500e- UNIVERSALK9NPE-M), Version 03.05.03.E RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
  • Running default software - Jawa Revision 7, Winter Revision 0x0.0x40

I will be in charge of moving the core switch configuration from a single Cisco 4507 w/blades to a Cisco 9300 and some 9200L switches (maybe with VSS Stack - the enterprise didn't decide yet.)

I'm looking for a little help:

- Can I just (mostly) copy-paste the config (I know some things will have to be configured)

- The configuration stays the same, it's mostly just moving to more recent equipment.

- Any special things/guidelines/guide to follow?

- I started studying for CCNP ENCOR and bought several books and I do watch online videos

- I'm also looking for guides or "best practice" advice. 

For the past two years I've mostly done Layer 2 switching. I did some Layer 3 but almost nothing at all except for firewall. I know I have a lot to learn.

And the most important thing: Thank you for your time.

Some of the configuration may not work when you move from IOS to IOS XE

So you need to tweak the config which can work on Cat 9300
