Over winter break, I will have opportunity to do maintenance on my core 6509 switches. This is my first chance in a couple years—5 years for one of them. I would like to upgrade code on all of them and would like some input on your experience. They’re all currently running older 12.2.33 train code. Should I stay on the 12.2.33 train or move up to the 15.1.2 train? Anyone have experience on the 15.1.2 train?

 

Note: one 6509 has a WiSM 1 module and another has a WiSM 2.

 

Thanks,

HI Mike,

 

We are on SUP2Ts and on 15.1(1)SY1 for the past 6 months.

 

The SY1 addressed a CDP bug that caused reboots for us.

 

Stable for us.

I guess I should mention that we’re running SUP 720-3B on all three with no VSS.

Mike – I’m running 15.1(1)SY1 in my lab 6509 (Sup-720/3B), with WiSM-2’s for about 6 weeks without any issues.  I’m running it on my production 6506-E (Sup-720/3C, Non-VSS) for wireless distribution pair with each having 3 WiSM-1 and 2 WiSM-2 for about 3 weeks without any issues.  There was an issue when I first moved to 15.1(1)SY1 on the WiSM-1’s (bug ID CSCui30442 , with the caveat of The workaround on the bugID is incomplete/incorrect.  What I had to do is remove the “wism module <slot#> controller <x> native-vlan <VLANID>” command from the IOS.  I then used the session slot command to connect to each WLC and assigned the correct VLAN ID for the ‘management’ and ‘ap-manager’ interfaces.  This allowed everything to function normally.).
