Cisco C3560 upgrade.

Crazycrux used Ask the Experts™
I have a cisco C3560 Software (C3560-IPBASE-M), Version 12.2(35)SE5 and i tried to run ospf in it. but it says it is not included in the package.

So can i just download a latest firmware and upgrade it, or would i need any key to activate it. and what is the process of upgrading the switch.

You will need to change the feature set to Advanced IP Services.

Download the image to your tftp server then on the switch:

#archive download-sw /overwrite /allow-feature-upgrade /force-reload tftp://x.x.x.x/imagefilename.tar
The "ipbase" versions of the firmware only have basic commands.  You need to download the "ipservices" version.  There is no key to activate, but you do need access to Cisco's downloads.
