IOS on Cisoc 6513 Switch with Supervisor Engine 720

I have a Cisco 6513 Switch with a SUP 720 Engine running the following image:

CR-6513#show bootflash:

I would like to upgrade to the latest version which is 12.2(33)SXH5, but I'm not sure what image I need.  If I go to the following location on Cisco's website and click on the IOS software Modularity Maintenance Packs-12.2(33)SXH5 I see the following images

s3223-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5
s6523-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5
s72033-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5

What is the difference between these images.  I'm guessing I need the one that starts with s72033 since my current IOS starts with that.

You've only got 64MB flash there, so you'll need a Flash upgrade to at least 512MB if you want to install current code.  The furthest you could go to is probably an SXD train if you want to maintain all of the features of your current code without a Flash upgrade.

However, if you go here...

http://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=280829702&flowid=20135&softwareid=280805680&release=15.1.2-SY1&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=ED&reltype=latest

...you should see all the releases for the MSFC3 version of the SUP720.

You should be able to download the 15.1 releases from there.

s72033-advipservicesk9-mz.151-2.SY1.bin is the most recent version of Advanced IP Services, which should include all of the same features as your current version of IOS.

S3223 is for Sup32 devices,
S6523 is for ME devices,
S720 is for Sup 720 devices.

You require 3rd one (s72033-mp001-pz.122-33.SXH5) because its Sup720 module.

None of those images you've selected will upgrade the code.  They are just supervisor maintenance upgrades.  Also. the SXH train is very old now and is end-of-life IIRC.

You should be looking to install at least an SXJ train of code, or a new 15(SY) train.

Can you post a link to where you're looking, or a screenshot?

Can you post a show version and show module output?  Maybe we can suggest something else which may be supported.

I can just insert a 512MB compact flash card, copy the IOS to that and boot to it then?

Craig BeckCommented:
You should use a genuine Cisco CF card.  It's not as easy as just copying the image to the card and letting it boot though.  You'll have to format the card while it's in the supervisor first, then copy the image to the card, then change the boot variable to point to the new image on the new CF card.

You can use the slot on the front of the supervisor to install the new CF card, but you'll have to leave it there if you want to continue to boot using the boot variable you configured.  If you put the CF card 'on' the supervisor board later you'll need to change the boot variable before you power-down the chassis.

Yes, I have a genuine 512MB flash card.  I know the drill on formatting it, copying the image to it, and changing the boot variable.  Thanks.  Let me give it a shot and I'll let you know how I make out.

Quick question.  How do I change the boot variable on the sup 720?  I have the CF card installed, copied the IOS to it, but when I try and configure it to boot to disk0:, I don't have that option below:

6513_SWITC(config)#boot system ?
  WORD   TFTP filename or URL
  flash  Boot from flash memory
  ftp    Boot from a server via ftp
  mop    Boot from a Decnet MOP server
  rcp    Boot from a server via rcp
  tftp   Boot from a tftp server

Nevermind, I was able to enter the following:

boot system flash disk0:s72033-advipservicesk9-mz.151-2.SY1.bin

Now I have the following in my switch as well:

boot system flash sup-bootflash:s72033-pk9sv-mz.122-17b.SXA.bin
boot system flash bootflash:s72033-pk9sv-mz.122-17b.SXA.bin

I just need to remove these two right?  Then it should boot to disk0:

Thanks Craigbeck, I rebooted this morning and am now running s72033-advipservicesk9-mz.151-2.SY1.bin on my sup 720.  Thank for your assistance.
