Will ws-sup32-ge-3b supports IOS w/o MSFC ?

Hi Kamal,

Sup32 (WS-SUP32-GE-3B) has MSFC2A.

WS-SUP32-GE-3B = Supervisor Engine 32, PFC3B, MSFC2A.

You can check this detail by issuing show module

  5  Cat6k MSFC 2A daughterboard WS-F6K-MSFC2A      SAL1011G0BT  3.0    Ok

Under the Sub-Module section, find the feature card and the router card. In this example, the feature card and router card are:

WS-F6K-PFC3B = module is equipped with a PFC3B.

WS-F6K-MSFC2A = module is equipped with an MSFC2A.

2. will i be able to upgrade IOS for this sup with out MSFC?

Answer: CatOS is supported for layer 2 (switching) operations only. To be able to perform routing functions (e.g. Layer 3) operations, the switch must be run in hybrid mode. In this case, CatOS runs on the Switch Processor (SP) portion of the Supervisor, and IOS runs on the Route Processor (RP) also known as the MSFC

Without MSFC, you can run only CAT OS on the supervisor.
