Release Notes for Catalyst 6000 Family Module ROMMON Release 6.3(1)


Current Release: 6.3(1)—July 31, 2001

ROMMON release 6.3(1) is supported on Catalyst 6000 family modules installed in systems using Supervisor Engine 2.

The Supervisor Engine 2 houses two separate CPUs. One CPU applies to the supervisor engine and the other applies to the modules. ROMMON release 6.3(1) applies to the CPU that is housed on the Catalyst 6000 family modules and to the CPU housed on the Supervisor Engine 2 that applies to the modules.

This publication provides the procedure for downloading the new ROMMON image from Cisco.com and upgrading the ROMMON on your Catalyst 6000 family modules.


Note Upgrading the ROMMON on a Catalyst 6000 family module requires supervisor engine software release 6.3(1) or later. Earlier supervisor engine software releases do not support this method of upgrading the ROMMON version on a Catalyst 6000 module.
