Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches

PCMCIA Flash PC Card Required for Select Cisco IOS Software

Product Bulletin No. 1838

PCMCIA Flash PC Card Required for Select
Cisco IOS Software for Supervisor Engine 1A
of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch

Use this document if you have the Cisco IOS® Software or Cisco Catalyst® Operating System (CatOS) software and Cisco IOS Software for Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC) on the Supervisor Engine 1A with the MSFC or MSFC2 of the Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Switch.

Flash PC Requirement

Software image sizes are increasing because of an increasingly rich Cisco IOS Software feature set. Select images, beginning with Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(11b)E, are too large to reside in the onboard bootflash single inline memory module (SIMM) on the Supervisor Engine 1A of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch. These images are for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch running Cisco IOS Software on either the Supervisor Engine or the MSFC. The system software image must reside in Flash PC card slot 0 or slot 1 on the Supervisor Engine.

The following tables list the software versions that require the system software image to be on a Flash PC card.
