Flexible NetFlow is supported only on the Catalyst 3750-X and 3560-X switch running the IP base or IP services feature set and equipped with the network services module. It is not supported on switches running the NPE or the LAN base image.

The minimal Cisco IOS Software release for the service module is 15.0(1)SE. Older Cisco IOS Software revisions will not recognize the service module.
The license level required on the switch to support the service module is either IP Base or IP Services. A service module inserted into a switch running LAN Base will operate in pass-through mode.

show switch service-modules
Use this command to see the status of network service modules installed in the switch or in the switch stack.
