NetFlow Command Support on C4503

Hi

I am trying to use the following commands on the switch but it is not supported:

ip route-cache flow    

ip flow-export destination

Attached is the output for show version and show module commands from the switch.

I will appreciate support from the cisco community to help me get this fixed.

Thanks

Is it mandatory to have a NetFlow Service Card installed in the switch to use netflow commands.

Hello Ibrahim,

This feature is only supported if you have a netflow services card (WS-F4531). Without this, it won't support. Below is a link which provides this info

Thanks

Hi Ibrahim,

All 4500 series switches need a seperate NetFlow service card to be configured to support NetFlow.
For your information, I have a 4507R for one of my customer without this card and unable to configure NetFlow.
So then I suggested to my customer to buy a seperate card to be work NetFlow on this switch. Once I instaleed the card and then only I was able to configure the NetFlow.


Hope the above clear and understand you.

Thanks Guys. Appreciate ur support. So now once I  get this service card installed I shud b able to configure the netflow commands.

Yes you are right. All the netflow based commands will be auto-enabled as soon as you install the service card.

Please close the thread if we have answered your query.

Thanks

Hi Ibrahim,

Once you inserted the card in slot (host swapable), once the IOS detected the card and sync done, you will be able to find all realted commands.

Hey Guys

Check out this link

Does this mean we can configure the Flexible NetFlow commands without netflow services card (WS-F4531)?
